Book Review: "Boundary Crossed" by Melissa F. Olson

Boundary Crossed

"Boundary Crossed" is a wonderful novel about a woman who wants to save her dead sister's daughter from vampires who want to kidnap her. Melissa F. Olson created a new world, one where vampires, witches, and werewolves live hidden among foundings, or regular humans. Most of the time, those of the Old World limit their interactions with humans. But some vampires suddenly take interest in a little 18 month old girl, and her aunt Lex takes an interest in the vampires. As a reader, you go with Lex on a journey learning about the Old World people. I love how Ms. Olson carefully explains the world to the reader through Lex's eyes - never dumping information but also not withholding information. The characters we meet are believable, with understandable motives and emotions, from the would-be kidnappers to the resident witches to Lex's family. There is a bit of romance going on here. Lex meets a vampire named Quinn, who works with Lex on tracking down the people behind the kidnapping. Ms. Olsen almost sets up a love triangle (groan) but nicely sidesteps it. I never got a feeling of extreme attraction between Lex and Quinn; instead they are learning about each other, becoming friends, and also experiencing chemistry. I recommend this book to anyone who likes urban fantasy. I have high hopes for this series. View all my reviews
