The central body of works heavily overlap. They can be read in any order. With two exceptions, they do not rely on each other's endings.

(Those two exceptions are Unfit and Naiskarin which do not overlap, but are sequels).

I tried to steer clear of those long series where you have to read like 15 books just to get caught up.

Books 4K (Kimberly Rose) and 5J (Mrs. Blue) are all you need to read to get a 95% understanding of Victorious. All the other characters cameo in these two books (Except Turik from Kajo's story, who sneaks through 4K unnamed).


Victorious

All the above books culminate in a battle depicted in Victorious.

This is a conclusion story. It totally spoils all the other books. You should read Victorious last if possible.

That battle marks a new era in the storyverse, called "Dominion Day".


Post-Dominion Era

Lorraine, Alita, and Catherine Starsong (Rocket Baby) are contemporaries. Their books can be read in any order, but they occur about 100 years after Victorious.

Unlike Victorious, they do not go out of their way to spoil the other books, but some reveals are unavoidable.

 

 

Back Cover Description

The Chronicles of Kwan follows the struggle of one young woman for liberty from the shadow of the Coalition of Lightnings. Freedom not just for herself, but for all her fellow serfs in Hillvale demesne.

“I feel a suffocating cloud of dread overcome the tiny group. My aura hovers among the students here in my home. It stands tall against them, a cloud-high column of sunshine and fire that envelops the entire building.

Theatrics? No. Not even a whirlwind of strength and power can save them. The wheels of the rebellion will not be easily slowed. We are too many to be silenced. We will not be stopped... not even by death.”

This is a short story intended to introduce the various powers.

The reading order is listed as "any" because it is NOT a prerequisite for Kimberly or Jenna's stories. I'm building a reading order page to help organize this.

When I originally penned Kajo's story, I knew there were a lot of missing gaps, and always knew I would one day come back and fill in what I call "the people's" side of the tale. This story is the beginning of that journey.

Back Cover Description

“The draconic mouth fashioned of basalt rock sneers at me, that grotesque display of cunning masonry. The judgement seat of the Naiskarin rests empty. They intended me to take that role, but I should hardly volunteer to wear those puppet strings.

I live behind the scenes; a ghost by choice who yet sees light. A means of coping, surely, for strong are the demons my powers bring me. I am a piece on the board in the game of world powers. How now shall I fall in love?”

Described as a novella, but this could claim to be a book.

I had planed to call Book 4 "House Caz" following Jenna and Hazran. Kimberly was supposed to fade off the page about 25% of the way through. Advance readers kept asking questions, getting me to expand parts I thought were straight forward. Before I knew it, Kimberly was eating 75% of the story and there was no room for Jenna. Lorraine (originally book 5) got bumped to #6, and Jenna now got her own title "Mrs. Blue". Lorraine remains highly unimpressed by this turn of events.
