For readers new to the LORE series, here’s the low down 🙂
There are 3 distinct series – Lore of Arcana / Lore of Reaume / Lore of Sanctum – and each set tells the tale in a different time. Yes, this is, in fact, one series (therefore LORE) and yet each set of 4 books tells a separate story. You can pick up volume 1 of any of the three and start reading from there, but if you desire the greater tale, the grand design, I do suggest starting with Lore of Arcana and journeying through to the end of Lore of Sanctum.
Let’s begin with Arcana’s four:
The Infinity Mantle
There is a darkness coming …
This is the ‘meet and greet’ beginning of it all. In this book you meet the main characters as well as a few extraordinary beings, and adventure with them as their mission begins.
The main setting is the world Valaris, with visits to worlds beyond a Rift.
The Kinfire Tree
Kin is everything
The main character Rayne becomes someone unexpected, and it is soon apparent that his story drives the greater tale as well. Prepare for something new!
Again, Valaris is the place of conflict.
The Drowned Throne
Throne of the Valleur
This is the book of battles! Everything ramps up, and the fighting is intense. Here the mighty Valleur Throne is unveiled, to disastrous consequences.
Look to Aqua Island on Valaris for an epic confrontation!
The Dragon Circle
Of Flame and Fire
The final Arcana book is about loss, betrayal and ultimate change. Here Torrullin stands forth, and prepares for the worlds of hurt awaiting him in Lore of Reaume, and yet there is an ending. The Dragon Circle doesn’t leave you wondering!
While the main tale takes place on Valaris, you will visit both Ardosia and Pendulim as well.
Even as the author, I cried. I cried while writing this particular book and when I read it later as a reader 🙂
Links to all four books are in the sidebar. Happy reading!!
Lore of Reaume’s reading order follows this post.
After Reaume, make a note of Lore of Sanctum’s reading order too 😉
