I’ve updated my free reading guide and the new edition is available for download! I missed the update last year, so there were a lot of changes.
Since 2016, I’ve been publishing a reader guide as a free download. This little volume is thick with links. There are links to product pages as well as links to other content on my site that you might have missed—an out-take scene, family trees to download, audio samples, and swag. There are also suggestions for reading order, beyond the series order.
I change the cover each year when it’s updated so you know which version you have. The newest one for 2022 is pink, as at left.
Inspired by an article I saw online, I’ve been creating some booklists for you. These are PDF files that you can download and print out to keep track of which books you’ve read and which ones you want to read. They also list each of my series in reading order.
Here’s a screenshot of the top of the Delacroix list, so you can see what they’re like:
Editions with a red dot are no longer available. Editions with a green dot are available. There’s a list at the end of the abbreviations used for print editions.
Each list “lives” on my appropriate sub-genre website, so the second link will take you to Delacroix.net.
This is the cover of the new reading guide for my books. It includes information about all of my books and series, with suggestions for reading order and a bit of a peek behind the scenes. I update this digital resource every year and change the colour of the cover so you know which one you have.
The reader guide should be a free download at your portal of choice, but if it’s isn’t, you can download it free from BookFunnel.
There’s a new trend for Reader Guides, or Reading Order Guides, particularly at Amazon. These little downloads provide a list of an author’s books, with the reading order of series included, as well as suggestions of where to start reading. Since the most common query that brings people to my website is “Dragonfire reading order” or “Claire Delacroix reading order”, I decided it would be a good idea to create one of these little guides.
The result is ready for you today. It’s a free download at my store as well as at major portals, and it’s thick with links. There are links to product pages (there’s an Amazon and an iBooks version with links to their portals specifically) as well as links to other content on my site that you might have missed—an out-take scene, family trees to download, audio samples, swag, upcoming booksignings. It’s a jam-packed little volume.
My plan is to update it annually, so this is the 2016 edition.
First, you can read the books in their entirety, in the order of publication.
The timeline of The Crusader’s Handfast, though, crosses over that of the series. It starts at the end of The Crusader’s Bride and ends after The Crusader’s Vow. So your other option is to read the books interspersed with the installments of The Crusader’s Handfast. This is pretty much in the order of publication, and will ensure that Duncan and Radegunde don’t provide any spoilers for the books:
