Green herself described it in the afterword to the final book as an "odd series" organised into "two crossed trilogies in the form of an X."
One trilogy tells the story of the sorceress Chalaine and the sorcerer-prince Bariden. That trilogy starts with "The Hidden Realms", shares the middle book "Dark Mirror, Dark Dreams" with the second trilogy, and is concluded in the final book of the quintet, the appropriately named "Game's End.
However, "Silver Princess, Golden Knight," kicks off another trilogy within the same broader canvass, telling the story of Princess Alexia and the mercenary captain Tiran d'Iste, both of whom are shapeshifters. Their adventure, which includes both a romance and a quest for a kingdom, starts here, and continues as the two stories come together in "Dark Mirror, Dark Dreams", which is the middle book of both trilogies. The story of Alexia and Tiran is sort-of concluded in the fourth book in the quintet, "Wind Whispers, Shadow Shouts". The double titles denote this second trilogy.
The linkages between the two stories are clearest in the middle book, where all four characters work together, and at the conclusion of "Dark Mirror, Dark Dreams" each of the two couples become the rightful King and Queen of their own Kingdom. In the final two books, each couple has to defend their newly-gained realm and its' people against attack by powerful evil from beyond the worlds.
If you are going to read this series, it helps to read each trilogy in order and to read "Game's End" last.Read more ›
This is the first book of a series set in a fantasy of interconnected worlds. This story is about shapeshifters, but the next include the Sighted (magicians,wizards and sorcerers) and the stories beging to intertwine, revealing a more sinister back plot. Very excellent series.
