But each book is independent. Since I have always been more attached to Aral any (or maybe equally) I don't see this as a problem.  Moreover, I'm not very happy about prequels - sequels do better because of their forward momentum. Start at the beginning. Don't look back. By this argument, maybe we should start with Falling Free. (Okay, that's outside the series - but we should have the movie anyway. Hmm, who will we cast as Leo?

Oh, well, then. So much for *that* script.
