In my early teens (in the late 90's) I borrowed a series of fantasy books from the public library. I remember getting annoyed when the next book in the series wasn't in, so this series has at least 3 books. The story line is still very vague to me: a group of children is transported to different worlds, I think 2 ended up in a world with highly advanced technology. Another, a boy, in a medieval type of world with swords and magic. His name was Rohan (or Rolan, Rogan, Rodan or something in that same vein that starts with an "R") and he ends up becoming The Knight of the Red Rose or has something to do with a red rose. And if I remember correctly, all these worlds are somehow connected to each other.

I originally read this series in Dutch but I'm pretty sure it's translated from English

Please help me out with finding this fantasy series. I never finished it and it has been bothering me lately.

Renald? Then it could be Diadem as Nefric suggested (it sounds really close), but offhand I recall nothing about a red rose... – Izkata Jan 11 '13 at 3:41
The Hounds of the Morrigan is a good read, but I also believe it's a standalone, and it's only about two children. Hey excellent, it looks as though @Nefric has your answer! – user45906 May 20 '15 at 19:04

I have alo been searching for this series and just found it. It's Diadem by John Peel.

Am not sure but there is a children's fantasy book called The Hounds of the Morrigan by Pat O'Shea, but I'm pretty sure it is a stand-alone, not a series.

And there is Secret Country trilogy which includes The Secret Country and The Whim of the Dragon and The Hidden Land by Pamela Dean.

Am not sure about these though..what do you think?
