Re: "The Fall" books - Where exactly do they fit? (No spoilers please)

So, I had to re-buy the Destiny trilogy cos the guy who brings them for me lost it somewhere.
Bought it new - just to make Ktrek happy.
(Actaully, I bought it new cos I couldn't find a used one in good enough condition to make it worthwhile.)

I hope you bought the omnibus edition — it's less expensive than buying all three books separately.

^^^Yeah.
The lost one was also the omnibus edition.
At 700+ pages it's gonna be heavy.

Hey peeps, is The Fall in chronological order? Or is it like the earlier Typhon Pact stuff? Or is that all a mystery still?

Not sure yet. A part of TCS is set before a big event in RaD. I asume that the other novels will all be set in chronological order.

They are in roughly chronological order, with some overlap of events.

I was kind of figuring that, since all 5 books are suppose to take place within a 60 day period, so even if one book's time frame was just one day, it would probably be overlapping with another book.

It will be fun to try to dissect the different chapters of the books and make of chronological list of them interspersed with one another.

Just make sure you do it in another thread please.
And don't forget to mark it "spoilers" in big, flashing letters.

It will probably be several years before I catch up in my book backlog enough to read The Fall.

It took me a year to get through all the DS9 relaunch books including the mirror-universe and most of the other background books.
26 books in 52 weeks.

Assuming I keep up a similar rate I should be able to read Fall in a few months - depending whether I read the extras added by Sci.

Heck, sometimes it can be worthwhile to read a later story first and then have your curiosity fired about what led up to it.

So I'm trying to make my way through the typhoon pact books so I can start on the The fall series. At the same time I want to finish the DS9 relaunch stuff and start on the vanguard series. Too many books and not enough time to read them all!

I know how you feel.
Luckily for me I had plenty of time to read all the DS9 relaunch and am now on Typhon Pact.
