    Is there a specific reading order of all your books that would help to amalgamate the world of alithoras?

    I want to start reading but can’t find an order anywhere!!!

    Thank you!

  2. There’s no specific reading order between any of the individual series. You could start with the first book of any series – but I would probably start with the Raithlindrath series. This was the first one published, and it serves as a good introduction to the land of Alithoras. After that, the Durlindrath and Son of Sorcery series.

    Thanks for your interest. Hope you enjoy!

    Is there or will there be a follow up to the Durlindrath series? Brand seems like a character that could go on for several more tales. I hope so as I would really like to see hiw his choice pans out.

    • There will be a follow up, for sure. Brand’s time in Cardoroth is coming to an end. Soon, he’ll return to the lands of the Duthenor to reclaim his heritage. But the usurper knows he is coming, and is taking steps to eliminate Brand as a threat. But Brand is a hard man to kill…

    Some of the finest fantasy books I have ever read. I can not recommend them enough and really look forward to what comes next. Thank you.


    Hi Robert.
    I must say I really love your books…exciting stuff.I was however a bit upset at the end of Durlindrath series(hopeless romantic me).I didnt understand why Kareste up and leaves without saying goodbye..after her and Brand spend so much time together,and Brand was “Smitten”
    Is that the end of her story as I cant seem to find mention of her in any of your other books.Please put me out of my misery…
    Thanks .
    A fellow Robert..

    • Glad you enjoy the books, Robert!

      Kareste is one of my favorite characters, so I don’t think you’ve seen the last of her just yet. She’ll make a return. And she’ll have her staff back. Wherever the danger is thickest, that’s where you’ll find her. But it might take a while.

      She had a few issues though. And she was getting very close to Brand. That was the reason she left – she had to get herself right first. If she didn’t leave straightaway, she doubted she ever would. After that though, what would be would be…


        Hi Robert.
        Thanks for the quick reply…….good to hear of your plans. Kareste is a fav of mine too as you may have guessed.I kinda thought she had issues to resolve I will continue to enjoy your books and hope for more Kareste
        .All the best for your writing

  6. Cheers! FYI, the next book after the current series finishes is called “The Seventh Knight”. Just maybe, she’ll find her way back in that. We’ll see!
