Character Lists for Books 1 to 4 by on

Compiled by Marsha Jones.

I’ve received a number of letters and e-mails asking for a list such as this to be included in the books. This is not, unfortunately, possible. However, Marsha and DAW have said I can make this list (compiled for me as a reference source for the series) available here. For those who don’t know, Marsha is involved in the editing process of my novels at every stage.

So for those of you who want to know exactly what a crolla is, or where demon fish live, or which major character met who where, here it is. I have edited it in an effort to not cause Spoilers to those who haven’t read the whole series.
