The first four volumes were my first attempt at writing. So they were not good, at all. I know they need a rework, I'm going to leave them as is for now. I suggest starting at volume five for now, as it has my current writing style. It ain't great, but it is light years better than the first four volumes. You don't need to read the first bits to know the whole story. It all should have been explained enough already to get the idea.
