What would happen if you read the books in The Auralia Thread out of order?
I would have guessed that it would be pretty much impossible. Several reviews of Cyndere’s Midnight and Raven’s Ladder began with the reviewer saying, “I was very confused, but then I realized that this book was part of a series, and I need to read the first one.”
But there have been exceptions. Some read Cyndere’s Midnight first and managed to get through it and enjoy it. Then they read the rest of the series.
See for yourself. Apparently, it isn’t impossible. It’s not ideal, of course. But not impossible.
