WHAT ORDER TO READ?

One of the top questions received is what order to read the books in. All of the books are written so they can be enjoyed without knowing what happened in previous books, however there’s nothing like reading from the beginning to see how the characters you love developed.

Use the tabs below to see the overall release order, the order by series, or the intended reading order for the Acton/Kane/Delta universe.
