Fallen Empire Reading Order (and Book 8 is out)

| Posted in My Ebooks |


I’ve just released End Game, the 8th and final book in my Fallen Empire series. Now that the series has grown to eight novels and several short stories, some folks have been asking about the best reading order, so here’s the list in chronological order. They can be read this way, but with the prequels, you may enjoy them more after you’ve read a couple of books in the series and know the characters.

Fallen Empire Series in Chronological Order:

Remnants — A short story that takes place 2-3 years before Star Nomad. It’s the adventure where Alisa and Mica first meet, and it’s currently only available in the You Are Here SF/F anthology.

Last Command — A novella that takes place 6 months before Star Nomad. It’s from Leonidas’s point of view and shows him carrying out his last mission before the fall of the empire. It’s currently available as a free bonus to those who sign up for the Fallen Empire newsletter.

Star Nomad — The first book I wrote and where the main adventure begins! The ebook version of the series is currently exclusive with Amazon (but if you’re reading this after Spring of 2017, it should be out everywhere), but the paperbacks can be purchased at Barnes & Noble and other online bookstores. Also, the audiobooks are being produced by Podium Publishing and are available through Amazon, Apple, and Audible.

Saranth Three — A short story that takes place between Star Nomad and Book 2, Honor’s Flight. It’s currently a bonus for newsletter subscribers.

Honor’s Flight — Book 2 in the series

Starfall Station — A short story from Leonidas’s point of view. It takes place between Book 2 and Book 3. It’s currently available through the free Star Rebels anthology. (This is available on Kobo, Apple, and Barnes & Noble, as well as Amazon.)

Starseers — Book 3

Relic of Sorrows — Book 4

Cleon Moon — Book 5

Arkadian Skies — Book 6

Perilous Hunt — Book 7

End Game — Book 8

Hope Springs — A honeymoon adventure that takes place after Book 8. It’s currently available in the Beyond the Stars: New Worlds, New Suns anthology.

Cyborg Legacy — This is a stand-alone novel that takes place a few years after the main series. It brings in a new hero, Jasim, but Leonidas also returns to go on the adventure.

Hi Lindsay,
Have read and enjoyed the “Emperor’s Edge” series and am now reading “Fallen Empire.”

I am interested in “Last Command.” I could not really find a place to sign up for the newsletter.


Hi, Bob! I just added you to the newsletter. You should get a link to click to verify you want to be on it, and then a letter with all the bonuses. Thanks!

Hi Lindsay,

Gotta say that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the Fallen Empire series and this book, I think, was the perfect ending to it (especially with the few extra scenes in the 2nd epilogue).

I really do hope you continue writing books in this universe at some point. Maybe with a few years gap in the timeline with an older Jelena and Thorian as the main protagonists? 🙂

I’m glad you enjoyed the FE adventures, Toni! That’s actually what I have in mind for the spinoff, starting about 10 years in the future. 🙂 We’ll get an interim peek at Leonidas and Alisa (and their children) about four years in the future, too, as I’m finishing up a short adventure with another cyborg now.

Hi Lindsay! I’ve just finished reading the entire Fallen Empire series. I am wondering if there will be a spinoff series with Thorian and Jelena or any of the other characters (Bravo Six, Leonidas’ and Alisa’s children, Mica and Yumi, Beck, et al)? Lots of unanswered questions in that end book. Thank you!

Look for more with Jelena and Thorian about 10 years down the road, and I’m sure we’ll check in with some other characters too. Thanks for reading, Wilmarie!

Just wanted to thank you for putting the Fallen Empire series on Kindle Unlimited. It’s so fun to read them one after another.

I’m glad you’re enjoying them, Kelly!

I don’t know if you know this, but Amazon selected Star Nomad: Fallen Empire, Book 1 as one of its Best Books of 2016 in the SFF category.

I just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS. I was so happy for you. I’m a “shadow reader” who’s been lurking for years. But I had to come out of hiding for this. hehe.

If you go on the Best Books of 2016 page, scroll down to “Best Books by Category” and click SFF, your book is on the second page.

My husband and I just finished audiobook for Conspiracy. We are disappointed that there are no more audio books for the later books in this series. Are you planning to have them recorded soon?



Blood & Betrayal is in the works right now. Look for in early spring. Thanks for listening!

I devoured this series too quickly and would like to be added to the newsletter so I know when the next installments/spinoffs come out. Love the story arc! Thank you for the great writing.

P.S. How does one get the second epilogue to End Game? 😉

Sent you a note with the extras, Vicky!

First I want to say that I love the Fallen Empire series, but I’ve run into a slight problem. I have been reading the series on my iPad through the iBooks app but I can’t seem to find the 8th book End Game.

I read the fallen empire series because I had completed the Emperor’s Edge series and wasn’t ready to be done. (I read that because the first book was 0.99 on nook and I was looking for a fun read. Two weeks of late nights later….)
When I went to buy books 7 and 8 I found they weren’t on nook but we’re on Amazon. After completing book 8 Amazon, in its infinite wisdom and calculations, recommended several books to me that fell under the “Fallen empire Worlds” heading.
I have several questions about theae including: is thrre an order list somewhere, how does something like that happen, do you have any control over what is written, and do you get paid for this?
Final question: am I being too nosy?

Loved the Fallen Empire series. I just bought Cyborg legacy and will then move on to the Rogue prince ones.
I love discovering new authors with several books out really love your characters and writing.
Thank you!

Nicely written really enjoyed the first 3 looking forward to the next set

I can’t seem to find the second epilogue for End Game on this site. I’ve read everything from your Fallen Empire as well as Hope Falls, Cyborg Legacy, and the three books you have with Jelena and her crew. Was re-reading the series when I tripped over the blurb for the second epilogue and now I’d like to see what I missed. By the way, I love the EE series and am enjoying hearing about that world from the Nurian perspective. I could mention Flashgold, Dragonblood, and the Ancient Artifacts series, but maybe that’s too fawning fangirl. So I probably shouldn’t say anything about your Ruby Lionsdrake books. Yeah. Okay. I love your books.

It’s a bonus for newsletter subscribers, Kim. ( If you’ve signed up and didn’t get the links to the various freebies, let me know, and I’ll send them in an email attachment. Also, I’m glad you’ve been enjoying the books. Thanks so much for reading!

Luv ur work going to buy series thank you will cash

Loved the books, I am sad they are over. I signed up for the news letter but I wasn’t sure if it’s still running. Would love to read the additional epilogue if it’s still available. Also there was a mention of other authors writing in this universe, is there a list somewhere of their work? Cheers Joel

Hey, Joel! Yes, the goodies still come in the welcome email. It may have gotten eaten by a junk folder. I’ll send you everything now!

I discovered Star Nomad because it was €0,0 on Amazon. Before downloading even free books I always check the reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. I want to get a feel for a book before giving it a shot, to avoid wasting time on a clear nogo. What I read looked very interesting. I downloaded the book to my Kindle and read it in one day. That was yesterday. Wow. Great read. I really enjoyed it! This morning I registered to the newsletter, downloaded all goodies and bought the rest of the novels and the anthologies containing the short stories. I think I got them all now…
I already read and loved “Remnants” and am now enjoying “Last Command”.

What a great series and writer to discover!

Thank you Lindsay!

When will Fallen Empire (8 Book) be available in audiobook format?


Oh dear, here I go being seduced again. I started off getting your ‘Beginnings’ album and after reading those first stories, I find I am now buying and reading all of those series.
I now have only the last book in the Fallen Empire series to get and I must admit I have thoroughly enjoyed the time spent reading them.
I admire and appreciate the craft and skill woven into this series and am finding similar attributes in the other series that are tempting me to avidly read them to conclusion.
You have turned my Amazon Kindle into a faithful companion.
Thank you, ma’am
