Released: May 1, 2015
Genre: Paranormal, Urban Fantasy
Length: 302 Pages
After her twin sister’s brutal murder, former US Army Sergeant Allison “Lex” Luther vowed to protect her niece, Charlie. So when two vampires try to kidnap the baby, it quickly turns into a fight to the death—Lex’s death, that is.
She wakes up to two shocking discoveries: she has miraculously survived the fight, and baby Charlie is a “null,” gifted with the ability to weaken supernatural forces...and a target for creatures who want to control that power. Determined to guarantee her niece’s safety, Lex makes a deal with the local vampires. She sets out with the mysterious—and undead—“fixer” Quinn to track down whoever’s responsible for the kidnapping, sharpening her newfound magic skills along the way. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more dangerous her powers become.
Boundary Crossed is a dark, thrilling journey into a world where the line between living and dead isn’t nearly as solid as it appears...
Review by Lissa
One day, I was browsing on my Kindle. I have a lot of books I could read but nothing I really felt like I was really just whole heartedly getting into. This book caught my eye. I loved the cover and didn't really read much of the Synopsis. I kinda like doing that, not really knowing what the book is about.
Well.. Let me just say I'm glad I browsed that day for whatever was calling me. The beginning of this book, just pulls you in. It was fast paced and exciting. I really started to love the character Lex. A lot of times, I don't really like the characters at first. Till eventually they win me over. There's a lot about her and you learn overtime who she really is. I love that she has this humorous side, even though she is in total danger. That she would protect her family, whatever the cost. I'm a fan of Vampires and Witches. Sometimes though it's hard for me to find one that I love.
It was not confusing and flowed magically, I guess you would say.
About 51% in I realized that the second book doesn't come out till October! Wow.. I'll have to wait awhile. But that's alright :D
That.. Hmm how can I put this into words. This was the best paranormal series I've read this year so far. It was truly perfect. I loved the characters, but not just Lex. A whole bunch of them. Each of them brought so much to this story. I'm just beyond words right now.
This is the first book I've read of Melissa's. I will most absolutely be reading more from her. Since, I have to wait till October. I'll have to read her other series, I went out of order whoops! Thank you, Melissa for writing such an amazing story. If I could give this 100 stars I would.
**Originally, I used Kindle Unlimited but purchased the book after. Totally worth it!! go get it**
