I picked up "Dark of the Sun" by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro at the library the other day and got it home and realized it's part of a series. I have looked on her website and searched here but I can't figure out what book to start with. Should I start in order of how they were published or should I read them in chronological order? Thanks!

There is character overlap, so I'd recommend in publishing order.  But she is very good at making the books stand alone.

That's what I was thinking but her website was kind of confusing. Thanks for the answer!
