Gap (time?) between Shadowrise & Shadowplay?

Hi guys!

Just finished Shadowrise (loved it) and started Shadowplay.

But I'm feeling like I've missed some Chapters or time lol

It seems to me that we're dropped back into the Story after quite a few/many events have transpired to "all" the characters.

I'm pushing forward and I've picked the "current" events running...but I'm having a hard time shaking the feeling that I'm missing what would of been quite a bit of interesting turns of events.

I'm assuming this is as was intended by our beloved storyteller, but I'll be honest...I'm feeling a bit disheveled here ;)

Anyone else feel this way when they made the transition?

Warm Regards,

MC :)

Re: Gap (time?) between Shadowrise & Shadowplay?

If you are reading SHADOWPLAY after reading SHADOWRISE then you have red them in the wrong order, because SHADOWPLAY is book two and SHADOWRISE book three. If you want the story to continue after SHADOWRISE you need to pick up SHADOWHEART.

Ok I figured out what happened.

I had finished Shadowplay and then started Shadowheart on Audible instead of Shadowrise lol

Not sure how that happened!

But yea, nothing like skipping a full book to get you a bit confused and out of sync ;)

That's for pointing me in the right direction!

All is right in the Kingdom again!

Best Regards,

MC
