What’s on the Kurtherian Universe Reading Order?

The Kurtherian Universe is probably the largest, independently published shared universe out there. Originally developed by Michael Anderle, other authors have joined with their own stories set in the same universe. Therefore, this Kurtherian Universe reading order assembles all of the books in the various series in chronological order.

At one point, the timeline splits into two main continuities, one that takes place in space, called the Age of Expansion. The other takes place in Earth’s far future,┬áthe Age of Magic. We’ve placed the Age of Expansion first, even though the chronology places them together.

Where to Start Reading the Kurtherian Universe

Each series in the Kurtherian Universe is designed to be read separately. However, if you want to start at the beginning, we do recommend Death Becomes Her, the book that started it all. It is also the start of the largest series in the universe, the Kurtherian Gambit series. If that series is too long for you, keep in mind that only the first six books are a complete story arc. Read those, and then you can pick another series if you wish.
