Apparently, but you are wrong in company with me. I always assumed 
Spellcoats was first until the recent paperback re-edition which numbers 
the books from 1-4, and Spellcoats is 3. I don't really understand this. 
For a long time it was pretty much a stand-alone book until Crown of 
Dalemark used a couple of the characters in a tangential way. It certainly 
takes place a lot earlier than the other three books, but clearly this is 
no reason to regard it as early in a series.
