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.

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.
Dark Instincts starts with an awesome attention-grabbing action scene that had my jaw dropping as I realized what was happening. Roni and Marcus are two fun, sexy and aggressive characters that I had fun getting to know.
Set in summertime Paris, MOONLIGHT AND DIAMONDS features an American werewolf alpha, looking for the right werewolf gal to start his own pack, and a cold Parisian beauty who has been running away from her wild side for years. For such a short book, the evolution of the characters and their relationship was believable and mostly well-paced. The mystery was fun and the varied paranormal world-building was interesting.
With a series about cryptids who can kill you in very weird ways it was inevitable that a visit to Australia, a land of ten thousand things that can kill you if you look at them wrong; was in store for the Incryptid series. POCKET APOCALYPSE introduces werewolves into this world which from the perspective of someone who has read a ton of werewolf related books, seemed kind of mundane for this series.
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.
The book Kitty Norville fans (or maybe just me) have been waiting for, LOW MIDNIGHT tells a story from Cormac’s point of view. If you’re expecting a Kitty story, you’ll be disappointed. Kitty is still present, but this is basically Cormac taking the reins, and having his own adventure.
WOLF’S FALL presented a protagonist with PTSD due to a torture incident with a vampire which was a pretty interesting problem to load onto a character. While I don’t know to much about what PTSD is like I thought it portrayed the struggles of someone who has gone through a heavy trauma very well.
‘ve only ever read one other Anita Blake novel and after reading that book I experienced the first time ever wanting to unread a story due to reason to long to write here. Since then, I’ve been hesitant to even pick up the first few books of this series which are supposed to be excellent according to everyone I’ve spoken to about the series. I decided to give JASON a chance as I was prepared for the random sexual encounters, throngs of characters, and over explaining of Anita’s relationships.
HER LONE WOLF is a fun, suspenseful paranormal romance that leans heavily towards the thriller genre. There are government conspiracies and elaborate chase scenes with a tight plot and tons of twists and turns.
