    Things were in a bit of a jam at the end of book two so I was ready to pounce when this final book in the series came available. Vampires, FBI, betrayals, and an enemy who seems to be holding all the cards was definitely just my thing. Outbreak is book three in an Urban Fantasy tril...

    I have really liked Melissa Olson's other series so I decided to give this one a try. While I found the characters interesting I did not really bond with them. There was non-stop action and the world that everything took place in was different and fit the story line. The story seemed t...

    Just as good as the last two instalments of this fast paced, supernatural police procedural mini series, this was proof that quality always overcomes quantity. Sharply violent but with a very human heart, this is where Lindy and Alex must face the evil that Hector has become. Tense thr...

    Outbreak picks up right where Switchback left off. And not with a moment to lose. The evolution of Alex and Lindy's relationship wasn't at all surprising, but I could have lived without it. I like that Chase was redeemed in the end. Hector, oh so crazy and infuriating Hector, got what ...

    Action-packed, fast paced read, finished in a few hours. Third title in a series which I would probably have enjoyed more if had read books 1 & 2 first. Some confusion regarding relationship between a few characters and motivation behind actions of others. ...

    Eh. This conclusion to the series was underwhelming. Lindy, Alex, and the BPI face their final showdown with Hector. It was anti-climactic. At least with the other books I enjoy the procedural aspect of the storylines. Not the case here. What a shame. ...

    Excellent I really like the Nightshades series and this was a great addition. Great characters and great wrap up. The ending could be a series finale but maybe not. I think Alex and Lindy have some adventures left. ...

    Excellent conclusion Like everything by Melissa F. Olson, Outbreak is excellent. It wraps up the story that started in Nightshades but still leaves you wanting more Alex and Lindy. ...

    3.5* ...

    The final book in a novella trilogy about vampires or, as they are called in the books, shades. An excellent conclusion to the series and one that I much enjoyed. ...

    It was a quick read. A very food ending to the series. Kinda leaves me wanting to know more. ...

    Fabulous read!!!! ...

    Review originally published at Vampire Book Club and based on a copy provided by the publisher. Outbreak overlaps with the end of the previous Nightshades book Switchback, and revisits the same events from a different point of view. Lindy and the Chicago BPI pod are being blamed for...

    Olson?s vampire/police procedural continues to please, and has the feel of a number of today?s popular TV shows. The main villain is cartoonishly evil, though there?s an attempt to give him depth via the revelation of more of the backstory he shares with Lindy, his sister vam...

    Picking up where Switchback left off, the Chicago PBI team is suspended pending an investigation after Hector succeeded in breaking the captive shades out of custody and Lindy is suspected of having been involved. Backed into a corner, Lindy and Alex, along with the remainder of their ...

    Things were in a bit of a jam at the end of book two so I was ready to pounce when this final book in the series came available. Vampires, FBI, betrayals, and an enemy who seems to be holding all the cards was definitely just my thing. Outbreak is book three in an Urban Fantasy tril...

    I have really liked Melissa Olson's other series so I decided to give this one a try. While I found the characters interesting I did not really bond with them. There was non-stop action and the world that everything took place in was different and fit the story line. The story seemed t...

    3.5 stars. ...

    Fun, light, fast moving series I enjoyed these three urban fantasy books. They are quick reads, light but well-done. Fast-paced and fun. Read them in order. ...

    3.5 stars. Very quick read, lots of action but no surprises or twists. Good end to the series with enough openness to the ending to allow the author to revisit this world if they choose. Definitely need to read the books in order for maximum enjoyment. ...

    This series is good but just too short to be great. We start book 4 where we left off on book 3, where shade (vampire) Lindy Frederick and FBI Agent Alex McKenna have just spent the night together and wake up to the news that the shades have all broken out of the FBI holding in Wash...

    This entire series of novellas would easily translate to film, and I?d definitely want to watch. Shades (aka vampires) are out of the closet and known to humanity. Shades don?t need or even generally want to hurt the humans they feed on, but the FBI has created an offshoot, the ...

    I have enjoyed this series as a whole and I thought this was a decent conclusion, albeit a little abrupt. This third instalment tells the continuing story of the Bureau of Preternatural Investigation and its search for the rogue vampire king, Hector as he bids to change the balance of ...

    Just as good as the last two instalments of this fast paced, supernatural police procedural mini series, this was proof that quality always overcomes quantity. Sharply violent but with a very human heart, this is where Lindy and Alex must face the evil that Hector has become. Tense thr...

    Outbreak picks up right where Switchback left off. And not with a moment to lose. The evolution of Alex and Lindy's relationship wasn't at all surprising, but I could have lived without it. I like that Chase was redeemed in the end. Hector, oh so crazy and infuriating Hector, got what ...

    There?s a prison Outbreak (ebook from Tor) of shades (think vampires) from a prison bus. That sets the final chase of the ancient shade, Hector by Alex McKenna of the Bureau of Preternatural Investigation and Hector?s sister Lindy. At his heart Hector wants to become the King of th...

    This one picks up where that last book ( Switchback ) leaves off. A total non stop action romp through the Chicago area. Really enjoyed the Trilogy as a whole and this was a perfect ending for it. Got to see a bit of character development and finality to the whole evil Hector wants to ...

    Action-packed, fast paced read, finished in a few hours. Third title in a series which I would probably have enjoyed more if had read books 1 & 2 first. Some confusion regarding relationship between a few characters and motivation behind actions of others. ...

    Satisfying ending to an entertaining trilogy. The only complaint I have is the s American as many others. It was a bit too abrupt. Still, it was a good read, and I would enjoy reading other story arcs with Alex and Lindy as the main characters. ...

    Eh. This conclusion to the series was underwhelming. Lindy, Alex, and the BPI face their final showdown with Hector. It was anti-climactic. At least with the other books I enjoy the procedural aspect of the storylines. Not the case here. What a shame. ...

    Excellent I really like the Nightshades series and this was a great addition. Great characters and great wrap up. The ending could be a series finale but maybe not. I think Alex and Lindy have some adventures left. ...

    Good ending This was a good ending to an interesting story. Melissa I a great storyteller with a slight twist to the usual traditions of paranormal. I recommend all of her stories. ...

    I would give it four stars, but I find these books more novellas than novels. It would be nice if there was more depth to them. ...

    good series. Interesting take on vampires, just light enough to keep me reading but not so heavy that it took forever. ...

    Thank You Ms Olson for a really good series. I've enjoyed every page. Thanx from Sweden Ken ...

    Excellent conclusion Like everything by Melissa F. Olson, Outbreak is excellent. It wraps up the story that started in Nightshades but still leaves you wanting more Alex and Lindy. ...

    3.5* ...

    Review originally published at Vampire Book Club and based on a copy provided by the publisher. Outbreak overlaps with the end of the previous Nightshades book Switchback, and revisits the same events from a different point of view. Lindy and the Chicago BPI pod are being blamed for...

    Olson?s vampire/police procedural continues to please, and has the feel of a number of today?s popular TV shows. The main villain is cartoonishly evil, though there?s an attempt to give him depth via the revelation of more of the backstory he shares with Lindy, his sister vam...

    Eh. This conclusion to the series was underwhelming. Lindy, Alex, and the BPI face their final showdown with Hector. It was anti-climactic. At least with the other books I enjoy the procedural aspect of the storylines. Not the case here. What a shame. ...

    Excellent I really like the Nightshades series and this was a great addition. Great characters and great wrap up. The ending could be a series finale but maybe not. I think Alex and Lindy have some adventures left. ...

    Good ending This was a good ending to an interesting story. Melissa I a great storyteller with a slight twist to the usual traditions of paranormal. I recommend all of her stories. ...

    I would give it four stars, but I find these books more novellas than novels. It would be nice if there was more depth to them. ...

    good series. Interesting take on vampires, just light enough to keep me reading but not so heavy that it took forever. ...

    Thank You Ms Olson for a really good series. I've enjoyed every page. Thanx from Sweden Ken ...

    Excellent conclusion Like everything by Melissa F. Olson, Outbreak is excellent. It wraps up the story that started in Nightshades but still leaves you wanting more Alex and Lindy. ...

    The story picked up immediately after the end of book #2, when the 'evil villain' Hector and his army broke the prison that kept shades prisoner. Within hours, FBI turns their investigation to Lindy -- as Hector's twin -- and decides to dismantle the Chicago field of Bureau of Preterna...

    Things were in a bit of a jam at the end of book two so I was ready to pounce when this final book in the series came available. Vampires, FBI, betrayals, and an enemy who seems to be holding all the cards was definitely just my thing. Outbreak is book three in an Urban Fantasy tril...

    I have really liked Melissa Olson's other series so I decided to give this one a try. While I found the characters interesting I did not really bond with them. There was non-stop action and the world that everything took place in was different and fit the story line. The story seemed t...

    3.5 stars. ...

    Fun, light, fast moving series I enjoyed these three urban fantasy books. They are quick reads, light but well-done. Fast-paced and fun. Read them in order. ...

    3.5 stars. Very quick read, lots of action but no surprises or twists. Good end to the series with enough openness to the ending to allow the author to revisit this world if they choose. Definitely need to read the books in order for maximum enjoyment. ...

    This series is good but just too short to be great. We start book 4 where we left off on book 3, where shade (vampire) Lindy Frederick and FBI Agent Alex McKenna have just spent the night together and wake up to the news that the shades have all broken out of the FBI holding in Wash...

    This entire series of novellas would easily translate to film, and I?d definitely want to watch. Shades (aka vampires) are out of the closet and known to humanity. Shades don?t need or even generally want to hurt the humans they feed on, but the FBI has created an offshoot, the ...

    Just as good as the last two instalments of this fast paced, supernatural police procedural mini series, this was proof that quality always overcomes quantity. Sharply violent but with a very human heart, this is where Lindy and Alex must face the evil that Hector has become. Tense thr...

    Outbreak picks up right where Switchback left off. And not with a moment to lose. The evolution of Alex and Lindy's relationship wasn't at all surprising, but I could have lived without it. I like that Chase was redeemed in the end. Hector, oh so crazy and infuriating Hector, got what ...

    There?s a prison Outbreak (ebook from Tor) of shades (think vampires) from a prison bus. That sets the final chase of the ancient shade, Hector by Alex McKenna of the Bureau of Preternatural Investigation and Hector?s sister Lindy. At his heart Hector wants to become the King of th...

    Things were in a bit of a jam at the end of book two so I was ready to pounce when this final book in the series came available. Vampires, FBI, betrayals, and an enemy who seems to be holding all the cards was definitely just my thing. Outbreak is book three in an Urban Fantasy tril...

    I have really liked Melissa Olson's other series so I decided to give this one a try. While I found the characters interesting I did not really bond with them. There was non-stop action and the world that everything took place in was different and fit the story line. The story seemed t...

    3.5 stars. ...

    Fun, light, fast moving series I enjoyed these three urban fantasy books. They are quick reads, light but well-done. Fast-paced and fun. Read them in order. ...

    3.5 stars. Very quick read, lots of action but no surprises or twists. Good end to the series with enough openness to the ending to allow the author to revisit this world if they choose. Definitely need to read the books in order for maximum enjoyment. ...

    This series is good but just too short to be great. We start book 4 where we left off on book 3, where shade (vampire) Lindy Frederick and FBI Agent Alex McKenna have just spent the night together and wake up to the news that the shades have all broken out of the FBI holding in Wash...

    This entire series of novellas would easily translate to film, and I?d definitely want to watch. Shades (aka vampires) are out of the closet and known to humanity. Shades don?t need or even generally want to hurt the humans they feed on, but the FBI has created an offshoot, the ...

    I have enjoyed this series as a whole and I thought this was a decent conclusion, albeit a little abrupt. This third instalment tells the continuing story of the Bureau of Preternatural Investigation and its search for the rogue vampire king, Hector as he bids to change the balance of ...

    Just as good as the last two instalments of this fast paced, supernatural police procedural mini series, this was proof that quality always overcomes quantity. Sharply violent but with a very human heart, this is where Lindy and Alex must face the evil that Hector has become. Tense thr...

    Outbreak picks up right where Switchback left off. And not with a moment to lose. The evolution of Alex and Lindy's relationship wasn't at all surprising, but I could have lived without it. I like that Chase was redeemed in the end. Hector, oh so crazy and infuriating Hector, got what ...

    There?s a prison Outbreak (ebook from Tor) of shades (think vampires) from a prison bus. That sets the final chase of the ancient shade, Hector by Alex McKenna of the Bureau of Preternatural Investigation and Hector?s sister Lindy. At his heart Hector wants to become the King of th...

    This one picks up where that last book ( Switchback ) leaves off. A total non stop action romp through the Chicago area. Really enjoyed the Trilogy as a whole and this was a perfect ending for it. Got to see a bit of character development and finality to the whole evil Hector wants to ...

    Action-packed, fast paced read, finished in a few hours. Third title in a series which I would probably have enjoyed more if had read books 1 & 2 first. Some confusion regarding relationship between a few characters and motivation behind actions of others. ...

    Satisfying ending to an entertaining trilogy. The only complaint I have is the s American as many others. It was a bit too abrupt. Still, it was a good read, and I would enjoy reading other story arcs with Alex and Lindy as the main characters. ...

    Eh. This conclusion to the series was underwhelming. Lindy, Alex, and the BPI face their final showdown with Hector. It was anti-climactic. At least with the other books I enjoy the procedural aspect of the storylines. Not the case here. What a shame. ...

    Excellent I really like the Nightshades series and this was a great addition. Great characters and great wrap up. The ending could be a series finale but maybe not. I think Alex and Lindy have some adventures left. ...

    Good ending This was a good ending to an interesting story. Melissa I a great storyteller with a slight twist to the usual traditions of paranormal. I recommend all of her stories. ...

    I would give it four stars, but I find these books more novellas than novels. It would be nice if there was more depth to them. ...

    good series. Interesting take on vampires, just light enough to keep me reading but not so heavy that it took forever. ...

    Thank You Ms Olson for a really good series. I've enjoyed every page. Thanx from Sweden Ken ...

    Excellent conclusion Like everything by Melissa F. Olson, Outbreak is excellent. It wraps up the story that started in Nightshades but still leaves you wanting more Alex and Lindy. ...

    3.5* ...

    The final book in a novella trilogy about vampires or, as they are called in the books, shades. An excellent conclusion to the series and one that I much enjoyed. ...

    I like this series a lot. ...

    It was a quick read. A very food ending to the series. Kinda leaves me wanting to know more. ...
