Thanks Vanessa, I look forward to starting them soon - should they be read in any specific order?

No, I don't think so. They're not part of a series. BE has written two books which follow on from each other - Daughters of Fire and The Warrior Princess (which are on my TBR pile) - but ones you have are not part of a series. Lady of Hay was her first novel.

I read those 3 books ages ago and I think there is some vague link between them, possible some characters crossing over from one to the other, but they're not a series as such so don't worry.

I can't remember that, but it is some years since I read them. Actually I haven't read Child of the Phoenix so I can't say about that one.

I think that was my least favourite, not a bad book but it seemed to be endless! :o

Oh, I like Fire From Heaven, although I haven't read it in a long time.

Today I picked up Joanne Harris' Sleep, Pale Sister -- I'm in the mood for some Gothic Pre-Raphaelite mayhem.
