2020 Reading Guide

I finally got this updated for you. 🙂

2020 Reading guide for books by Deborah Cooke and Claire Delacroix

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.

New Reader Guide

Reader Guide 2016 EditionThere’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.

Reading Order for the Champions

My adding The Crusader’s Handfast to the Champions of Saint Euphemia series might lead you to wonder about the order in which you should read the books. I thought we’d talk about that today because you have two choices.

First, you can read the books in their entirety, in the order of publication.

The Crusader's Bride, a medieval romance by Claire Delacroix The Crusader's Heart by Claire Delacroix, a medieval romance and #2 in the Champions of Saint Euphemia series. The Crusader's Kiss, #3 in the Champions of St Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix ClaireDelacroix_TheCrusadersVow200 The Crusader's Handfast, #5 in the Champions of Saint Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

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:

The Crusader's Bride, a medieval romance by Claire Delacroix The Crusader's Handfast, Part 1, a serialized medieval romance by Claire Delacroix The Crusader's Heart by Claire Delacroix, a medieval romance and #2 in the Champions of Saint Euphemia series. ClaireDelacroix_TheCrusadersHandfast_Part2200 ClaireDelacroix_TheCrusadersHandfast_Part3200 The Crusader's Kiss, #3 in the Champions of St Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix ClaireDelacroix_TheCrusadersHandfast_Part4200 ClaireDelacroix_TheCrusadersHandfast_Part5200 ClaireDelacroix_TheCrusadersVow200 ClaireDelacroix_TheCrusadersHandfast_Part6200

It’s your choice!
