Enter the World of Siliar!
The Thrice Born Era
Beginning in 4900—as years are numbered by the elves—the World of Siliar faced grave threats and underwent vast changes. It so happened that during much of that time there lived a man, Lansal, who was, as they said of people who had undergone the regenerative sleep of mages twice, thrice born. So it is that for Lansal, the Quiet, Thrice Born of Arok Dora that the works in this collection are named.
The author of Siliar planned for the reader to begin with Valley of Regret.
You can start with the Valley of Regret (Timeline).
Or you dive directly into the story with the first scene.
But you are free to dive into Siliar in many, many ways! The timelines lay out options for the stories, but you may want to start by looking at maps! There are links to information about the world, too—the author's very own notes!
Most readers could pick up any of the books, start reading, and follow the action, though some of the nuances of the story would be missed. However, there are several very viable places to enter Siliar besides the author's first book.
Book and collection titles having this ( ) symbol are entry points into the world, written such that the other works are not necessary for understanding the character and action arcs. Naturally, books occurring later in the collections will have details that could be spoilers for content in early books.
However you wish to do so… Jump into the World of Siliar, and join the lives of the characters!
