Organization or chaos, what's your flavor?
As far as book series are concerned... *cue the music*
Let's start at the very beginning, its a very good place to start...*I'll give you super bonus points if you tell me what movie that song is from.*
I like to start at the beginning and work my way through.
I'm not a big fan of cliffhangers either. *coughfeverseriescough*
But just recently my panties got all in a twist when I realized I had started at the END of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
That's right, kiddies and folks!
I, the lover of all things organized,
the seductress of straight and tidy,
have been thrown into book series chaos... and I kinda like it!
My convoluted trip started with book number 7, Lover Avenged. Rehvenge's story plunged me into the murky depths of deception within the Black Dagger Brotherhood.
And totally fed my hunger for this super DARK urban fantasy. I had to know what happened next in Book 8, Lover Mine. John Matthew's story was more twisted tales and eerie recollections.
Pretty much hooked, I bought a beautiful box set of Books 1 through 6 and proceeded to travel backwards in time. Starting with Dark Lover, I learned all about the unspoken traditions that were left out of the end books.
Moving through the series on the proper course, I cried for Rhage, was tickled black to see John Matthew as a pretrans, and terrified as I felt akin to V with my visions of the future.
Though I never would have set out to ruin a series with spoilers by reading the last book first, it was an awesome thrill ride to figure out how all the pieces would ultimately fit.
Now I'm on to the Fallen Angel Novels. The Brothers pass in and out of Ms. Ward's new series like a haunting reminder of that parallel world, adding another layer on the evil Caldwell cake.
Hop on the Chaos train, my pretties, and ditch the panties. ;)
