Topic: Question concerning "Legacy"

Dear Mr. Bear!

I just finished reading your novel "The forge of God". I really liked it (rating: 9 our of 10), because it was mysterious and full of suspense. The final destruction of Earth really shocked me. Now I want to read the sequel "The anvil of the stars".

I have a question concerning another of your series, i. e. the Eon Series. Is it necessary or at least helpful to read "Legacy" before reading "Eon"? And as far as I know, there is no German edition of "Legacy" - am I right?

I'd be very grateful for an answer!

Thanks and best wishes,

You can certainly begin with EON. That was the first book published, and still the best-seller in the series. I don't recall a German edition of LEGACY...

Should I read EON before LEGACY or can I read LEGACY more or less independant from EON?

I.e., will LEGACY make sense if you didn't read EON? (I read EON a long time ago and my memory is failing me.)

LEGACY occurs before EON in the sequence. Both are readable without each other. ETERNITY--soon being re-released in trade paperback from Tor Books--completes the sequence.
