The rule of reverse arrival

Monday, October 15th, 2012

One of the things that have left me resigned over the years that when I order multiple books of a series I’ve decided to read I always receive the first I want to read as one of the last, especially when I have ordered them at the same time, which is usually the case. This time it was again such a case, luckily I still had some other books to read before. The aforementioned series is the so-called science fiction/fantasy steampunk Jackelian series by Stephen Hunt. I had first picked up Secrets Of The Fire Sea, which had no reference of it belonging to a series as it read like a standalone one. Only when I looked on the web for more I discovered it was the fourth book of the series, of which until now 6 have been published. So now I’ve begun reading the first book, The Court Of The Air (2007), which will be followed by The Kingdom Beyond The Waves (2008), The Rise Of The Iron Moon (2009), Jackie Cloudie (2011) and From The Deep Of The Dark (2012). So plenty of reading and reviews to come for the coming weeks.
