Does the order we read these matter? After the reviews for Seize the Fire, I'm thinking of saving it for my last TP book.
The order shouldn't matter, but I believe Seize the Fire
is chronologically first. There's a bit of inconsistency, but the bulk of the chronological references indicate it's about a year after Destiny
and several months after Synthesis
, which suggests February 2382. Zero Sum Game
is in April and August '82, and I know from what Dayton has told me that Paths of Disharmony
is chronologically the latest of the four. I don't know the timing for Rough Beasts
