Joseph Delaney is a British author of typically fantasy novels. He retired from teaching pretty quickly into his career as an author. The first books he wrote under his real name was the Last Apprentice series as they are known in the U.S. (it’s known as the Wardstone Chronicles in the U.K.). That story continues in the Starblade Chronicles, however, you don’t necessarily have to read the Last Apprentice series to understand what is going on in the Starblade Chronicles. I’ve already read all of those books so far. His Aberrations series, I’ve got the first one on my Kindle Fire but I haven’t started reading it yet. His Arena 13 trilogy…I haven’t been able to find them in my local bookstore yet. I’ll probably have to either order them or see if I get get them on my Kindle.
