Is THE OTHER SIDE by R.Chetwynd-Hayes A Sequel or Part of a Series?
You know what drives me crazy, publishers that fail to let you know if a book is a sequel or part of a series. Several times I have read a book and felt a sense of confusion about some of the things going on inside of it, my mind thinking something important was missing, only to realize that the reason for this was simply because another book came before it. Now, had the book cover or description indicated this, such a mistake would never have been made, but each time this information was nowhere to be found. Even the Internet sometimes fails to give an answer, though, thankfully, more often than not it helps rather than hinders. Sadly, the isn't the case with The Other Side by R.Chetwynd-Hayes. For nearly an hour I have been doing searches to find out if there is an order one is supposed to read his books in, my realization that this title was just one of many concerning a house known as Clavering Grange having arrived quickly into my reading of this book. No answer has presented itself, however. One site does list a series of books concerning the Clavering Grange house and gives an order, yet this title is not a part of that list. Naturally, this has led me to another question: is there a series that also has some stand alone novels, ones that may not require a reading of the series to understand and enjoy? Any help in learning the answer to this would be most welcomed. I really want to read this book, but don't want to jump into the middle of a larger story and be lost.
