reading order

Forum for the discussion of all things related to The Multiverse (the intermixing of several book worlds). ;)
Forum rules
"With all the cross-reality interactions coming up now, it would make sense to have a "master" spoiler thread.

The rules are basically that the thread can contain spoilers for any P.S. Power book in the larger interconnected multi-verse (which really should get some kind of name) that is available on amazon. (So excluding books that are currently in "public" editing, but everything else is fair game)." ~ qHnED7SnYgQs

reading order

Unread postby addmoreice » Fri Dec 23, 2016 11:45 pm

I've got a friend who I am reading the books to, she has so far really enjoyed what I've read to her.

I just need to be sure I'm not reading things out of order and making it confusing.

I've so far read keeley 1-3, and shortcuts.

Does anyone know the entire read order for all the connected worlds?

Up to here, the different worlds can be read in any order as long as the order inside each world (even where that order interleaves books from different series, like the Timon/Tiera/Tor books in YA) is kept and "Stories from the End of the World" is read before "War Day" as these two books contain the only clear cross-reality interaction so far.

The Lament books are optional as I don't think that any cross-reality interaction has been shown yet (even though there are a whole bunch of characters that look like they are variants of other multiverse characters).

Starting from here, I would recommend to read all the books in exactly the given order as cross-reality interactions become common. (Technically, I guess, Absolute and Commit can be read at any time before Persist as that contains the first cross-reality interaction in that world.)

That makes it *insanely* hard to read the books to someone. I can't expect her to keep characters straight if it takes a month to read a book to her, then expect her to keep the story lines fresh when jumping from series to series.

I've read keeley 1-3, shortcuts, and we have started on keeley 4. Is their any way to find out 'you can read this series up to this point where they first cross over'. I know that can work, I just don't know what the individual jump overs are in all the stories. I've read them all, I just haven't gone through individually. I would wish to avoid doing all that work myself. I was hoping for just a wiki entry or something.

As I said, up to the merge point, which I clearly marked above ("Up to here, the different worlds can be read in any order ..."), you can read them one world at a time, so:

You can read the different worlds in any order (so Demons before AP is no problem) as long as you read Dead End before Infected (specifically, read Dead End any time before [Infected 009.00 - Brian 03.00] War Day).

Once you've finished all of these (which is going to take a long time, and Lament being optional as it's not [yet?] connected to any other story), then and only then read the following stories in this order:

2015-10-30 [AP 004.00 - Zack 03.00] Shield of Innocence
2015-12-19 [YA 018.00 - Dareg 02.00] Light Bringer

2016-03-30 [YA 019.00 - Dareg 03.00] Kindred

2016-06-15 [GF 006.00] Mask of Omegon, The
2016-07-30 [Demons 017.00 - Avery Rome 01.00] Scales
2016-10-10 [Coalescence 001.00] Out of the Woods
2016-11-14 [Demons 018.00 - Avery Rome 02.00] Dragon's Eye

I've found myself confused on a number of occasions where things have obviously happened in the timeline & not knowing even which books I should have read to be up to date. That was my main reason for looking up the website in the first place. Having a complete list is really useful. To that end I've added the latest from each:

2016-12-31 [Infected 012.00 - Cin 03.00] Asunder
2017-03-01 [GF 007.00] To End All Wars
2017-04-26 [Demons 019.00 - Avery Rome 03.00] Dragon Queen
2017-05-31 [Coalescence 002.00] Pain Stones

There is a wiki. The link is on the website. I did at one time have a reading order page but someone else is taking care of it now to add links and made it nicer and that page went away. Made me a bit sad as I felt it was important too for ease of understanding the reading order.
I guess check the wiki?

I'll admit that I haven't been keeping up with the whole "overall" reading order once it expanded outside the "Demonverse". I'll attempt to rectify that soon on the Wiki - sorry everyone.

Hi Everyone,

Here's the link to the new Wiki page for the reading order of The Multiverse:
