Do not miss this series.... if you're just entering the Chronos universe, this will be a great place to start... at the beginning... sort of. Since this it time travel, you could follow the published order as previous readers did. However, now that we have this amazing origin series, you could start at the beginning. Either way, just start this series. The characters are people you can get to know and love (or hate) and the story line is imaginative and interesting. I love this series and highly recommend it.
