Chronological Order of Dhea Loral Books
As more books and series comes out spinning stories around Dhea Loral, new readers can get lost in the timeline. Since some of my characters hop to other book series and storylines, this will give you an improved perspective on how events mix. You can get a better idea of the age of a character in one book, and how long time passed for them before finding them in the next book. Keep in mind, I do try to avoid having my characters give spoilers to other series. This listing will give you everything that happens in a chronological order and will be updated as new books come out.
