Hi all, I'm following this link to determine the order of the books I should read.

I've read read Dragons of a New Age trilogy and according to the site, I should read the Dhamon Saga next. So right now I'm in the middle of chapter 2 of Downfall and something doesn't seem right. Who are Maldred, Fetch, Rikali and the Legion of Steel Knights? There isn't any character development on them. And according to http://www.dlnexus.com/products/chronological.aspx, Downfall takes place after Eve of the Maelstrom. So where did these people come from? Should I not be reading this book yet?
