didn't she do the darksword series in the Forgotten Realms?
Yes, I've read several of her works. I actually prefer books that don't require you to read them all, in order, just to get the entertainment out of the stories.
Try reading Bujold's Adventures of Miles Vorkosigan books, just freaking hilarious, all can be read alone, yet if you read them in chronological order there is an entire framework that is completely consistent.
the last two books I saw in the series are the only two that do not stand alone, the need the one prior and read them in order, or they don't really make a good read.
