Do the three sequels have a specific order?Or we can read them in any order after reading BOOKS & BONE?

I'm currently reading BOOKS & BONE.Hopefully I can have time to make another comment later.

Hello! FAMILIAR & FLAME comes after BOOKS & BONE. MAKING FRIENDS and TINKER & TERROR can go in any order as they are just set in the same world, although TINKER & TERROR technically takes place after BOOKS & BONE. They are short stories rather than technically sequels, though FAMILIAR & FLAME will hopefully make a nice bridge to the next book when it comes out.

Thanks so much for reading my books. I hope you enjoy them. :)

Is this book yet another horror?


Hello! This is not a horror, no. It's very much in the vein of BOOKS & BONE, the novel world it is based on -- a fantasy with a necromancy aesthetic but more taking the world of necromancy as if it was normal, and much more focused on relationships. If you would define BOOKS & BONE or my other books as horror, though, then you are unlikely to enjoy MAKING FRIENDS.

I will say however that MAKING FRIENDS is by far grimmer than any of the other Tombtown stories, so judging by your question it is probably not what you're looking for.
