Murphy’s Law for bookstore shopping

When I find an intriguing fantasy series to read, Books 2 and 3 will be there but Book 1 is always long gone.

These are Melanie Rawn’s Exiles series, Angus Wells’ Godwars and Kathleen O’Neal’s Power of Light trilogy (hey I’m a sucker for a foil embossed cover, ok?).

But I did finally find the first in Michelle West’s The Sun Sword series, The Broken Crown as well as a replacement for my trick- or-treated copy of The Dragonbone Chair by Tad Williams…

And! An old friend!

Children of the Jedi by Barbara Hambly.

  1. Looks like some good finds. I’ve definitely had my share of book store visits searching for the first book in a series with little luck. Well, Happy New Year and good reading!

  2. This is so true – actually, even more so for my library. I do use the library quite a bit but if I’m looking for beginnings of series the start to the series are always long gone – for example, Jim Butcher! I suppose they can’t keep everything.
