OMG, Amazon shows a different book order from GoodReads. Very strange. I bought "Falling Free (Vorkosidan Book One)" from Amazon. Which is "the true" book one?

To answer questions about Shards of Honour, please sign up.
Emma As non of the protagonist or antagonists of the series are preset in Falling Free, I would not consider it a good first book to start the series.

Falling Free however plays in the same universe. It can be read as a separate novel at any time you want.
Melih Soydemir According to publication order (https://www.goodreads.com/series/9825...) shars of honour is the first book but chronologicaly falling free would be first book. (https://www.goodreads.com/series/9825...)
