Dark Stranger does not follow the linear order of the Primes universe and the story of Doc and Zoe takes place in the future. To make this work for readers Susan Sizemore created The Vampire Book Club, a group of women discussing fictional stories from their own culture and history. As a fan of the Primes I had no trouble at all jumping ahead in the time line and did not feel that it disrupted the universe in any way. How important is the time line when reading a series? Do you prefer orderly events that come one after another? Or do you like the change of pace, with some books taking place in the past or future?
