The Quentaris Chronicles is a series of 26 books writen by lots of different Australian authors. Each book is set within the city of Quentaris but is also a stand-alone story. You do not need to read all of the books in order to enjoy them. Michael Pryor and Paul Collins as well as being authors of many of the books in the series are the series editors. Quentaris is a fantasy city sited near rift caves. Rifts lead to many different worlds and cities and of course many different adventures. There are some characters that pop up in all the books providing continuity, such as Storm the leader of the Watch.

After the first series of the Quentaris Chronicles the publisher no longer wanted to print any more of that series so Michael Pryor and Paul Collins started work on a second series that differs from the previous in that the same characters will be used in each book. While each book of the second series does not necessarily need to be read in order it would be helpful to understand the history of the characters and the events leading up to the current story. The titles and the authors of the second series are listed below.
I highly recommend this as an excellent read.
