I am a fan of Melissa F. Olson’s Scarlett Bernard series, so when I saw she had a new series coming out I instantly preordered it. If I already know that I like the author and the book is in the same genre I generally don’t read the summary because they often have spoilers in them. So it was a very pleasant surprise when I started listening to Boundary Crossed and discovered it is set in the same world as the Scarlett Bernard series.

Lost in a crowd? Need to find yourself? A place where you just belong? THE AFFINITIES introduces a wonderful/scary world where finding your place in the world is simply an inexpensive test away; and if you don’t fit into any of the 22 standard profiles, or affinities, you even get your money back!
MIDNIGHT’S KISS promises to show the sexier side of the vampire from SERPENT’S KISS, as Julian was first heir to Carling’s throne and then a threat to her life.
POSSESSED BY A WOLF is a pretty fun action packed story with an at times confusing world building which was partially due to my habitual tendency to jump blindly into the middle of a series. That aside I enjoyed the tension and political machinations the characters have to work through while bullets fly, people are put in deadly peril, and things go boom.
The least historical feeling of the Scandals With Bite series, BITE AT FIRST SIGHT has all the hallmarks of a good paranormal romance novel. It’s got some hot sexual tension, some good old hidden feelings of love, and some supernatural drama, as well.
Following an author from one series to another, especially in the same genre, can sometimes be a bit of a risk. After all, it’s not the same characters that you already fell in love with, not the same world, and who knows? You may not like the new characters and world building, or they might be so similar you get the two confused. Luckily, JINN AND JUICE is a great start to a new series, original and fun, that really shows Peeler knows what she’s doing.
Though the Katherine “Kitty” Katt series is technically science fiction, it reads just like an urban fantasy novel. Just replace magic with technology and werewolves with aliens, while still keeping the same spunky female lead, and you’ve got TOUCHED BY AN ALIEN, the first book in the series.
THE DIAMOND CONSPIRACY is full of steampunk awesomeness as I thought this whole series would be just from reading the story summary of PHOENIX RISING. It has everything from weird steampunk weapons and tricked out vehicles to intense action and some romance thrown in as well. Add a mad scientist doing creepy experiments and secrets upon secrets and this book is filled with so much delicious ideas.
I was so excited to hear that there was going to be a new series dedicated to Prudence, the daughter of Conall and Alexia Maccon from the Parasol Protectorate series. Prudence was such an interesting child who could steal the abilities of any supernatural she touched that a whole new series dedicated to her hijinks as a young adult just had to be written. PRUDENCE is an absolute delight with dangerous new creatures and high skies dirgible adventures, odd new supernatural characters and mysteries, and the typical witty fancifullness I’ve come to expect and enjoy from Gail Carriger’s work.
INFINITY BELL, the second book in the House Immortal series, shows that Devon Monk just doesn’t know when to let up – in a good way! INFINITY BELL really takes the reader on a wild ride, throwing them from one conflict to the next, with smooth writing allowing for an excellent reading experience.
