The events in Ghalien happen before Luathara. This short novel takes place between Faelorehn and Dolmarehn. It covers what is happening during the summer while Cade is absent. However, it is probably best to read Luathara first because there might be a few spoilers ;). Included with Ghalien (at the end of the book) are two scenes from Dolmarehn told from Cade's perspective. If you've read the original trilogy (Faelorehn, Dolmarehn and Luathara) then it is safe to read Ghalien. (less)
