Well, River God was written first (1993) then Seventh Scroll (1995) and then Warlock (2001).

RG is my fave :)

Hi Tara, go to the Courtney Page selected from the front menu and select chronology/reading - this will suggest the order to read that series and the Ballantynes series has the same.

Yes I read it, but at that time Warlock was the first and only book the Book Warehouse had by WS so I read that one first. It's not that it didn't make sense. I totally understood everything that was going on. Besides it was kind of fun to read River God after Warlock and find out about Taita's life before, Lostris, and so forth. Also like unlocking deeper mysteries that gave you an even better understanding of what was going on.

Voted for "River God". Definately the best of the bunch!

Warlock rocked my boat, but i am sure i have voted on this before :?
While a tiger eyed its prey and an eagle raged in a thunderous sky a river of darkness fell upon a burning sun and the wolf cried tis a time to die, thus did the angels weep as power and triumph in those golden eyes did creep.
