Rebecca Just by the way, I always make a point to read the 1st book before the prequel because the first book kind of gives you an introduction for the setting and characters. Then, when I finally finish it, I read the prequel also because most of the time, prequels are actually made after the first book. So I would recommend reading the 1st book before anything else.
Addison Dixon You may have already read it, but--in case you haven't--I read For Darkness Shows the Stars first. I didn't even know about this one until my friend told me about it. She had even found out about it after she read FDSTS.
