The World of Tencendor


Hello all! I got into Sara Douglass four years ago, though I haven't read anything past her Axis Trilogy/Wayfarer Redemption chunk of books (that is including the two side books, too).

Don't know if it's been talked about, but I figure the timeline of those particular books go like this:

Axis Trilogy
Beyond the Hanging Wall (though this might blend with the last bit of the Trilogy...)
Wayfarer Redemption
Darkglass Mountain

I'm upset more people don't know about her series. I finally met someone in the mall who just heard of her (started reading Troy Game, I think). Oh well, I spread the word everywhere. I don't have the second book to Darkglass Mountain yet (so many books are coming out that I need to read!), but that's next on my list.

When you get a chance, read The Troy Game. Its an amazing series. Its my favorite of her books. But yeah, she is pretty much amazing. I'm trying to get as many people as possible to read her books. Even got two people who HATE fantasy to read all of the Axis Trilogy and Wayfarer Redemption and love them. As far as the timeline, Sara Douglass has on her website:

"[The Serpent Bride] is about five years since the conclusion of the Wayfarer Redemption, about eight years since the conclusion of Beyond the Hanging Wall, and some two thousand years after Boaz and Tirzah nipped Nzame's hopes in the bud in Threshold. StarDrifter has been moping about in Coroleas, Axis has been drifting through the Otherworld with Azhure, and Maximilian of Escator has been ... well, looking for a wife."

It has been a while since I read the Wayfarer Redemption or Beyond the Hanging Wall so I can't remember how much time each takes up but it looks like there may be some overlap.

Beyond the Hanging Wall starts when Max is kidnapped. Seventeen years after that is when it ends and they mention (I think, I'd have to reread it) the mines had already fallen in the beginning of Wayfarer Redeption series.

I love how they overlap, though. I remember starting with Axis Trilogy and then finding Threshold in the library and reading that. Then I got Beyond the Hanging Wall. I recognized some of the names, but didn't fully connect everything until I finally picked up Wayfarer Redeption. :) Then I went to my friends (who had just read Axis Trilogy) and shoved it to them and said, "OH MY GOD LOOK!"
