Penny Hey there, if you get a chance, can you please vote on my 'Best of Traci Harding' list? We need to get our lists kick-started and it's hard for the Australasian here eh?
Cheers,
Penny :)


message 2: by Lauren (new)

Lauren I haven't read any Traci Harding, Penny but feel free to recommend a starting point!


message 3: by Penny (new)

Penny There's two starting points:
1. 'The Ancient Future' which starts off an epic fantasy that is still continuing today (8 books so far) and 2. 'The Gene of Isis' which starts off 'The Mystique' books (3 books)
Admittedly, I'm not a fan of 'The Ancient Future' first novel as much as I am of the rest of them, but it was a starting point. Think time-travel, think many lives of the same souls, think saving the Earth and her people. 'The Ancient Future' starts in the age of Taliesin in Briton, the books expand in all directions (country, planet, past and future) from there. If you can look beyond the 'thees and thous' of the first book you'll be fine!
