Initially brought out through the E.A. Publishing label, this was first released in 2011 on the 9th of February to an already eager audience who were already aware of Andersen’s name. Setting up the first title in the series it manages to draw the reader slowly into the action, as the characters and the world gradually builds upon them.

The ambiance and style is something that definitely plays into this with the imaginative landscapes and vistas spanning out, but it’s the characters that keep it rooted. With the characters being easy to relate to, the main protagonist of Olivia Waterhouse will resonate with many readers, regardless of where they come, thanks to her being more than a two-dimensional character.

With the same odds as winning the lottery, it seems that some may feel that this is a lucky day for Olivia, despite it not being her choice at all. All set to marry to Baird who is Beast Kindred, he’s just escaped imprisonment, all the while keeping only one thing in mind, which was to find his bride to be, something which kept him sane throughout his ordeal. Olivia isn’t happy with this and it appears that she has a one month bonding period called the Kindred Mothership, during which time she is meant to mate with Baird. If she can keep this from happening she can then go back home, something which she is determined to do, but that’s easier said than done, especially when every touch of his ignites a passion deep within her. Will she be able to resist his charms? Can she ever return home? What will happen once she’s claimed?


Brought out through the E.A. Publishing house once again, this was originally released in 2011 on the 29th of April, only a few months after the first. Carrying on directly from the first, it provides another story set in the world of the kindred, as it seeks to recapture a lot of what made the original works so well. This isn’t to say that it doesn’t provide a few twists and turns along the way, though, as there’s plenty of surprise set to keep the reader engaged throughout.

This time looking at the character of Sophia Waterhouse, she is found to be on the run from a beast, as a kindred warrior doesn’t look to make her his bride to be this time.
