Dawn | 21 comments Hello,

Daughter of Time is marked as Book 3 in the series, when it is actually Book 1 (chronologically). This has lead to confusion by readers as they read them out of order. Series link:

The remaining order (Footsteps in Time & Prince of Time are in the proper order but should be #2 & #3 respectively).

I'm not dedicated enough to be a librarian, but I would kindly ask for this to be fixed.

Vicky (librovert) | 2459 comments Footsteps in Time is labeled as Book 1 on Sarah Woodbury's website, and on the cover of the book. Prince of Time is similarly labeled as 2.

She has Daughter of Time marked as a Prequel and not with a number. The description also says it is a stand-alone novel written within the world of the series.

All that said, I've removed the #3 from Daughter of Time but left the others as #1 and #2. I've also make note of it being a prequel on the series page.

We generally go by the publication order of the series - unless an author has specifically stated there is a better order for them to be read in.

actually, me too :)

but some people do just that with one or another reasons, and it's accomodated. so...*shrug*

Dawn | 21 comments Thank both Vicky & Nenangs for the comments. I didn't realize it was marked as #3 on the author's site or that it was a pre-quel. Appreciate the attention to detail!!!
