    Is there a certain order the books should be read in, or are they all stand alone?

    The numbered books can really be ready in any order, except number 7, Shadow Within. I'll get to that in a minute.

    The trilogies should be read in book order (Centauri 1, Centauri 2, Centauri 3), but you can read whichever trilogy you want in whatever order you choose.

    The exception to this is #7 Shadow Within. It serves as the prequel to the Techno-Mage trilogy. You should read it, then TM1, TM2, TM3. You don't *have* to, but it's better if you do.

    Other than that, nope. Read whenever, in whatever order you want.

      With the trilogies it's best to start with the first book

      But if you want to find out more about what happened on Centauri Prime, read that first before the others.

      However, I do tend to read To Dream in the City of Sorrows after Grey 17

          I just got the Psi Corp and Centauri trilogies for 10.99. I hadn;t been able to find the third Centauri book alone for less than $40 before that. Happy, happy. I'll be reading this weekend.

            Good for you I've had that happen where a book I've been searching for, literally for years, happens to be on a bookshelf somewhere, and for a good price too. Enjoy!

              The books are very enjoyable. However I will offer some warning in that you'll really want to see it happen on screen because the mind's eye visuals are great

                I found it easy to visualize the Centauri , and Technomage trilogies, but could never wrap my mind around the Psi Corps trilogy. I'm guessing it's due to all the subliminal messages in it.
