Anyone who has read these 3 books - how important is it to read them in order?  I have read the 1st and just got the 3rd, should I wait for the 2nd book?  Thanks.

No, don't start the third until you have read the second! This truly is a trilogy and I agree with Lynne and Catherine that they need to be read in order. This trilogy is sooo great, however, that I wouldn't hesitate going out to buy the second book - but you may want to check some of the used book sites first!! Happy reading!

Thanks I guess I will wait, my MIL is reading #2 now and I will get from her soon but I got the download for #3 from the library but  think it expires in 14 days.  I am not sure if I want to listen to it instead of reading it anyway.  I don't mean to sound so cheap(!) it is just that my TBR pile is so big these days I hate to go buy anything.  Thanks everyone for the inputsmiley
