Where to Start a Series?
It’s great when a reader asks me where to begin reading a series because it implies an openness to jumping into a world midstream, so to speak. In the case of the Vault of Dreamers series, I suspect readers would get more of a kick out of it if they start with the first book, so that’s what I recommend, but if someone first encounters Book 2 (The Rule of Mirrors), he or she could certainly enter the story with the characters at that point and understand what’s going on, even without reading Book 1.
In case you’d like the lowdown on the first book in the series, The Vault of Dreamers, Kayla over at Bibiophelia, Please has posted her review of that novel today, for the Rule of Mirrors Blog Tour. Drop by and check it out. She’s running a giveaway, too. Thanks, Kayla!
