Publisher's Summary

Something wicked is at work in Colorado's supernatural community. Vampires are being paralyzed or killed with poison...a weapon favored by witches. This offense threatens to break apart the already-fractured alliance between witches and the undead.

The state's cardinal vampire, Maven, summons boundary witch Allison "Lex" Luther to stop the killing before it ignites a war. Lex has barely started investigating when she gets another surprise: the biological father she's never met arrives on her doorstep. He has answers to all of Lex's questions about her bloodline, but getting those answers could mean betraying the life she's already built.

Then the next vampire is poisoned - and this time it's Maven herself. The new evil that hunts Lex is powerful and ruthless enough to stop the strongest supernatural creature in the state. In order to find such a killer, Lex will have to face down her own birthright and call on every ally - both living and dead.

    "Fantastic 3rd book. Can't wait for more."
    Would you listen to Boundary Born again? Why?

    No but definitely a fantastic story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lex. Strong independent women with issues like all of us


    What does Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I feel you just connect better with characters more when your listening


    Any additional comments?

    Explosive 3rd book. Hope more to come in future

    "Lex does amazing in difficult situations."

    I really enjoy this series, This book does not disappoint the narrator Kate Rudd does a wonderful job at bringing the different characters to life, I can always tell who is talking. It is hard to comment on the story without giving any spoilers away but I will try. Lex tries so hard in this book to keep on her mission even though at times she is not feeling 100%. There are some worrying parts, as in how is she going to get through this. Melissa F. Olson and Kate Rudd does a fantastic job of keeping the listener wanting more. I liked the chapter lengths they were long enough that you could listen to one or two just before bed.

    "Still a great read!"

    The most entertaining thing about this one, it is not about Charlie. Yes, her name is repeated throughout the book, but she is not in any danger. The next bonus, Lex find out her parents and there is evil in the shadows. My disappointment is the, "I am a monster syndrome” In situations where the protagonist finds out their parents were not the sterling members of the community, they feel guilty. They interpret their parents’ action as recriminations against themselves. Oh my god, I am evil, oh my god I am a monster. The only thing that has changed is they now know their blood line. That is needless filler and extremely unoriginal by the author.

    Lily and Simon are great as always. I really enjoy how they make up their own minds versus following what the coven says. I really like Lily’s voice and personality. Their mother is ok too. I understand her restraints. There is real witch royalty introduced. I would like to see that expanded upon.

    Why is it when lovers get into the struggle, I will be there to protect you, regardless if it kills you. Yep, Lex and Quin encounter a situation where she had to betray Quinn to keep herself safe. Again my WTF meter goes off doing the ensuring argument between them. After they make a promise not to do it again and you can hear the ominous music in the background.

    All said and done, I enjoyed the book.

    "Fantastic Read!"

    This is the third book in the Boundary Magic Series and it didn't let me down. In this story something is attacking the Vampires in Colorado and Lex, Quinn and their friends try to find out who and why. While the story moves along Lex learns a lot about her background and the background of boundary magic. Throughout this series Lex has been dealing with the fact that she is a boundary witch and everything that involves and how it affects her life and in this book we see this to a greater extent. Loved seeing how her and Quinn's relationship has grown and how her friendship with Lily and Simon has also grown. It was a fast read from beginning to end and all around fantastic story. I listened to the audio book and wanted to say that Kate Rudd did a great job narrating it.

    "And It Just Keeps Getting Better"
    What did you love best about Boundary Born?

    As much as I love the Scarlett series this is my favorite book by Melissa F. Olson so far. This is mainly due to Lex's character development. Lex remains naive to the Old World and is still stubborn as a mule, yet she is learning to trust the people she cares about.

    It's this slow but rich development is I love Mrs. Olson's work so much


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lily. Her humor and personality really balance out Lex's.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are a few and to avoid spoilers I'll leave it at that.


    Any additional comments?

    I am not a fan of Kate Rudd. Her accent is so pronounced every time she has to do another accent it's just painful to hear. But anyone who is a fan of her work will not find fault in her performance

    Over all I loved this book..Great pacing, great character development and a solid story. What more could you ask for.

    " Completes the character development. "

    Given the length of the stories. All three are required to provide a fleshed-out perspective of the character.

    "Loved this series!"

    Loved this one and the narration was exceptional. This is the third in the boundary magic books. Each is standalone stories but each build with the same characters. In this one we finally get to fin out who her father is and what happened to her Birth mother. These books are so good. Don't miss out on the audible versions. It's great to read and listen. Or read some and then listen some.
