Paul Franco This book takes place before almost all of the others chronologically, so it's actually the perfect place to start.
gremlin i think so. it seems she did a good job explaining what you'd need to know about the universe so you wouldn't be lost if you hadn't read the other books. just don't read the parts at the end with the timelines and characters so you don't get spoilers for the earlier Skolian Empire books.
Skolia The Skolian Empire series has a number of "entry point" books and Catherine is usually pretty good about having necessary information there for you anyway.
