    Thank you. I prefer to read a series in order. Amazon appears to have several of your series of books out of order and jumbled together. I’m enjoying these stories both for the story lines themselves, but also for the way all sorts of different pieces of history, myths & legends are all pulled up and tied with a bow. Awesome job.
