Bulari Saga reading order

As I wrote the first draft of Double Edged (the first book of the Bulari Saga), I quickly started to realize that I had more story than could fit in one book. 

I wrote the three prequel novellas and a short story as I was exploring the characters and history that played such a big role in the Bulari Saga, but I didn’t intend them to be required reading to enjoy the series.

What follows is a timeline of where each book takes place in relation to the overall story. You can begin with Starfall (the first standalone prequel novella), but I recommend starting with Double Edged.

Newsletter subscribers also get access to a VIP library of additional Bulari Saga prequel novellas, short stories, deleted scenes, artwork, and more.
