The Dragon's Disciple Universe, book list

Amora:...oh, good.  Here it is.  yay, I found it.  This is a lot of books Barbara, thank you so much for giving me this, it should prove quite helpful.  Nice little road map of sorts.
Let's see, what do we have...




Barbara:  The Dragon's Disciple Universe is branching out all over the place and we thought we should do an overview of  the contracted books and stories so far and give you all a heads up on how they're connected.


(Click the red titles for more information.)



This is where it all begins with Kiyoshi Ishibe and Liu Sakurai and the samurai Kuro who changes their lives forever.

***


This is the novel that introduces Dao Kan Shu and Toshiro Itou. It takes place prior to Through the Eye of a Tiger and Soul of the Night (see above and below).

***

THROUGH the EYES of the TIGER (complete, short story available in our yahoogroups files)

This is another glimpse of Shu and Toshiro pre Dragon's Disciple and Soul of the Night (see above) and takes place shortly after the close of Silk & Poison (see above).

***


This continues Kiyoshi's story and will introduce Ryuhei Nakamura as well as Dao Kan Shu and Toshiro Itou to those unfamiliar with the original release of The Dragon's Disciple.

***

HOUSE of ECSTASY (complete, unpublished, short story, needs revision will probably be a freebie at the yahoogroup)

This one fits chronologically between the first and second sections of The Dragons' Disciple and features Dao Kan Shu and Liu Sakurai. (see above)

***

A companion piece, prequel to Dark Whispers (see below) featuring Officer Ray Watts.

***

We're thinking of this story as the first in the "J-Rock branch" of the Dragon's Disciple universe. It introduces the members of the bands ChildsPrey and Gothic deSade and features a small appearance by Ryuhei Nakamura (see Soul of the Night above)

 ***

This is the first story to feature band members of ChildsPrey the Japanese hard rock band that Ken Ohara  (see Dragon's Disciple above) is a fan of. However it takes place in time after Orange Moon

***


Surprisingly this is not a yaoi story. Yes we really can write het. ^__^  It features ChildsPrey vocalist Imai Shimizu and reintroduces Gothic deSade vocalist Miji Makana. (see Orange Moon above)

 ***
Miji Makana disappears and writer Yutaka Kaneshiro is determined to find him.


***


ChildsPrey drummer Kyoru and his wife Sasao realize their bodyguard American Ken O’Neill has become more than a friend to them, but can they convince him?

* * *


The first section of this overlaps  the timeframe of  Soul of the Night and shows things from the perspective of Shu and Toshiro, taking their story into the present day. It introduces Ken Ohara and art professors Meg Silivasi and Leigh Gachelsing.

***


Lots of murder and magickal mayhem in San Francisco featuring Dao Kan Shu, Ken Ohara, Meg and Leigh (See The Dragon's Disciple above) and the return of  Liu Sakurai (see Blood Brothers above)


***


Taking place after Alliances this is all about Liu Sakurai and introduces NYPD detective Dai Matsui.

***


Featuring parapsychology grad students Matt Gavin and Haku Nishikawa (descendants of Carl Gavin reporter and Mr. Nishikawa the translator from Soul of the Night see above)

* * *

This continues the story of Kiyoshi and Ryuhei (see Soul of the Night above, and ties up loose ends left after Blood Brothers, see above).

***

I DO 


A short contemporary piece introducing Randy Ohara (cousin of Ken and CeCe)and NYPD detective Jason Chen.

***



Featuring Miki Nabeshima from BCS 1 and his quest to nab a serial killer as he struggles with an unexpected relationship

* * *

Amora:  Wow, Barbara, that's...a lot.  We're going to need more coffee.  Here, let me get that. *grabs empty cups*

I have more questions.  *refills coffee, makes fancy coffee art with a few quick, talented stirs*

*passes cup back*

Drink up.



We'll be back...

;)
