Fiction Reading Order

How to best approach my fiction

My fiction takes place in worlds alongside each other as well as other stories, such as those written by my brother Justin R.R. "Saber-Scorpion" Stebbins. My own books also take place along very particular timelines.

Thus, sometimes the reading order can be confusing, whether those books are Wulfgard, Nova Refuge, or otherwise.

Hopefully this page will help you figure out where to start for the best chronological experience... even if, really, you can start anywhere you like.

Ideal Starting Point - KNIGHTFALL

Though not the chronological beginning of my Wulfgard fiction, The Prophecy of the Six, Book I: Knightfall is the beginning of my most important book series.

It is designed to be an ideal point to begin my fiction, as well as being the centerpiece of everything I will ever create. It focuses on the characters dearest to my heart, their journeys, what I believe is my best whole story, and if you're here for werewolves, this series focuses heavily but not exclusively on werewolves, as well.

The Prophecy of the Six as a series is what I will consider the greatest achievement of my life whenever it is complete, and if one reads nothing else of my fiction, I would hope you would at least give this series a try.

Knightfall is due to be rereleased very soon with a major revision and expansion.

Stay tuned for updates!

  • The Dying of the Light

    The Dying of the Light can be read as a standalone book; however, it also takes place well after the events of The Curse of Ankhu and prominently includes Djedar Rath, while also introducing High Priestess Daria, whose peaceful life in the lavish High Temple of Ormazd is now threatened by a dark conspiracy - and even darker magic.

  • Tom Drake: Demon Slayer

    An important installment in the journeys of many characters, Tom Drake: Demon Slayer includes Tom Drake, Victor Magnus, Caiden Voros, Gwen Vergil, Djedar Rath, Daria, Chrisanthos, and even more characters, making it a story with an ensemble cast - and a pivotal tale in all their lives.

    In the city of Illikon, recently knighted Sir Tom Drake undertakes an assignment from his King and Queen - he must save their young nephew from a clandestine cult of dangerous mages. Ordered to keep his mission secret from even his best friends, as it is treason against the Imperium itself, Tom must navigate his loyalty and his friendships while matters unravel and fear grows in his city. Can Tom both keep his secret and save the boy in time, before the mages are discovered and judgment is passed upon them once and for all?

    [Coming Soon]

  • The Prophecy of the Six, Book I: Knightfall

    The start of my most pivotal Wulfgard series, Knightfall is the first book in The Prophecy of the Six, which prominently features nearly all of my Wulfgard characters and tells the tale of Tom Drake, as well as his many companions, including Kye Vakurseth and Magnhild.

    War is brewing between the Imperium and Northrim, and Tom Drake's home of Illikon is now caught in the middle. Ordered to attack Northrim against his will by the overbearing Sir Scaevius, whose command no Imperial can disobey, Tom also faces strange events in his own life: plagued by nightmares and hunted by assassins, Tom finds himself questioning his own sanity even as he battles for his home and all he loves - and everything keeps coming back to the disturbing beasts like he has never seen, which stalk him in the night and even in his dreams... Werewolves.

    The events of Prophecy will change the face of Wulfgard forever.

    [Revision Coming Very Soon]
