Each series within the Team ALPHA world can be read as standalones. Readers can jump in confidently into any of the connected series without missing anything important. What we do is use crossover characters from past books in the other series for readers who are familiar with it to see faces or characters that they know and love.
But it doesn’t take away from the experience of new readers. I promise!
For example, in Ready or Knot, Justin Perkins, aka Papa P, appears and we all know him from the Team ALPHA world (which was the original series in this world) as well as River who’s from both the Novak’s and Alphabits; and then Dante, Nacho, and a few of the Novak guys we know from the Novak series.
But you don’t have to have read any of that to enjoy the parts they play in this book. Each series is definitely standalone.
Here is the reading order if you are ready to read from the very beginning of this world.
