Overview

Fitting into the Old World isn’t going very well for Boulder boundary witch Allison “Lex” Luther: she may have earned a place in a vampire’s service, but now it seems as if every supernatural creature in town has found a reason to hate her. And when Lex and her partner are assigned to investigate the suspicious disappearance of two vampires during the night of the full moon, they find themselves with more questions than answers.

Was it murder…or mutiny?

The crusade for answers will lead Lex all over the Colorado Old World, from a prison cell for a broken werewolf to a haunted Denver brothel. And when Lex determines the responsible party, the hunt is just beginning: something has been awakened in Boulder, something as old and powerful as it is terrifying. Only the woman with death in her blood can stop what’s coming.

This book was nice and refreshing. When I stated reading from the first word it had me hooked me I could not put it down. US Army Sergeant Allison “Lex” Luther could not get her life under control when she got out of the service because of losing all of her team and losing her sister after that and leaving a daughter and husband behind. Lex thought she had to take care of her niece after losing her. But now would be time to get the book to find out what happens. It is worth it to have this book and the next two.

Allison/Lex has been invited by the witch leader of Colorado- Hazel Pellar to her farm to attend her clan’s Samhein festival to prove to the witches Lex wasn’t really scary. But the witches were not having it since her magic dealt with the boundary between life and death. Although to be honest some of the witches of her bloodline had really done some horrible things. Lex was still learning about her magic and making some mistakes. But while at the farm Lex felt like something wasn’t right and it wasn’t just her being there. Boundary witches which Lex was are known to be truly bad so Lex appreciated Hazel trying to fit Lex in with her clan. Her young niece Charley was a null. Nulls could cancel out all kinds of things like magic spells, vampirism, and werewolf magic. So Charlie was very important to the supernatural world . There had already been two kidnapping attempts on Charlie so Lex made a deal with the cardinal vampire- Maven- Of Colorado to have Charlie protected. Maven then calls on Lex as she is in a power struggle and wants Lex to sort it out. But also to get the vampires, witches, and werewolves to unite to fight and win against an ancient predator. They could only win if they all stood together. I didn’t realize there was a book before this one so will have to get it to pull everything together. I really enjoyed this story. The plot was great and Lex trying to get all the vampires, witches and werewolves to come together was just awesome. Also I liked the characters a lot especially Lex and all the twists and turns she goes through in the story. I recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

Melissa F Olson’s original approach to magic makes her urban fantasies all the more fascinating. Boundary Lines is the thrilling follow-up to Boundary Crossed, which introduced Allison “Lex” Luther, a witch with ability to straddle the line between life and death. In order to protect her innocent young niece, Lex works for Maven, the Vampire in charge of Colorado, as a troubleshooter. Her position under Maven and her boundary magic makes the local witches distrust Lex, although they have pledged to train her. Now, something is fomenting in the magic surrounding Boulder. The witches are restless. The werewolves appear to be encroaching on Maven’s territory. Maven’s vampires are behaving unpredictably, and some unknown magical creature is devouring humans and regurgitating the leftovers. If Lex can’t find a solution, war between the magicals will follow, and many innocents will die. Lex is an amazing lead. She is strong and intelligent, but she is also vulnerable. Her experiences as a soldier have helped her, but they have also made everyday life a challenge. Lex is complex and is vibrantly real. Olsen clearly puts a tremendous amount of effort in developing her characters, as well as researching folklore – a definite plus for readers. Boundary Lines is an exciting urban fantasy with a fascinating cast of complex characters – a perfect follow-up to Boundary Crossed. 5/5 Boundary Lines is available for preorder and will be released October 13, 2015. I received a copy of Boundary Lines from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review. –Crittermom

I think I said this back when I reviewed Boundary Crossed, but I’ll say it again — I really like the Old World universe Melissa Olson has created. In both her Scarlett Bernard series and in her Boundary Magic series, there are distinct creatures with different characteristics and roles within the magical community, a consistent set of rules for magic, and yet still always more to learn. In Boundary Lines, we learn a bit more about the nature of magic and about the relationship between witches and vampires in Boulder. We get a great Old World history lesson, as well, that includes the werewolves. We learn even more about boundary witches and about Lex’s past as well. I love it when a complex world is built slowly over time; it is certainly one of the elements that keeps me coming back to a series. I’m kicking myself, though, that I didn’t do more research into the novella, Malediction, before I started Boundary Lines. I saw there was a new Old World novella and even bought it, but got caught up in life and didn’t realize it fell between this book and the previous. Not reading the novella didn’t do any harm–Olson sums up what you need to know–but I do so like to read things in order. Plus, Lex gets to meet Scarlett in the novella, and I don’t want to miss that! Boundary Lines grabbed my attention from the very first page and I enjoyed every bit of the story. If you haven’t tried Melissa F. Olson’s series, you’re missing out. I highly recommend them both.
