Shadow Hunt gets off to a bit of a rocky start, but once the novel hits its stride it is fantastic. In Melissa F Olson’s newest novel, Scarlett faces two of her most difficult challenges - being pregnant and going against an extremely powerful European coven of dark witches. There is plenty of action, and we get to see several of our favourite characters from Olson’s other series. Fans of Scarlett/Jesse will finally get to see some progress on their relationship. And as always Shadow is a joy - she is one smart barghest and is always good for a bit of mischief.
Shadow Hunt presumes readers are familiar with Olson’s world, but there is still enough information given for newcomers to not be at a loss. If you haven’t read Olson’s books before, it is better to start at the beginning of the series. I definitely recommend Shadow Hunt to f...

Melissa F. Olson stands among the best current paranormal fiction writers. Her novels are heavy on character and action, but light on romance. If you are looking for paranormal romance, you will be disappointed. Boundary Born, the third book of Olson’s Boundary Magic series demonstrates Olson’s ability to keep her novels fresh and innovative. Her magical world grows and evolves with each novel. Boundary Born provides readers with a tantalizing glimpse of the origins of Lex’s abilities and her parentage. In the process of seeking a cure for the vampires poisoned by belladonna, including Maven herself, Lex uncovers the identity of her father as well as gaining a greater understanding of the history of the Old World.
