Books Series I Have Enjoyed

A Listmania! list by austenfitzgerald (Boston, MA)
The list author says: "I love reading series. I particularly like historical mysteries or sci-fi with romantic (but not too steamy/cheesy) elements"
The Queen Jade: A New World Novel of Adventure (Red Lion)
1.  The Queen Jade: A New World Novel of Adventure (Red Lion) by Yxta Maya Murray
The list author says:
  "Hispanc-American heroine is very likeable and her exploits are very Indiana Jones. 1st of 2."
$12.04   Used & New from: $0.01
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Silent in the Grave (A Lady Julia Grey Novel)
2.  Silent in the Grave (A Lady Julia Grey Novel) by Deanna Raybourn
The list author says:
  "This entire series has been fantastic! A very tough female heroine, mystery plot, interesting setting, and romantic without being too steamy. The covers make them look like bodice rippers, but they're actually great mysteries with well-developed characters. 1st of 4, with another coming."
$11.65   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (249 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

Used & New from: $3.51

Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate)
4.  Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate) by Gail Carriger
The list author says:
  "Really just fantastic steampunk sci-fi. The 2nd two in the series aren't as great, but still very good. 1st of 3 with another coming."
$8.00   Used & New from: $0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (564 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

What Angels Fear: A Sebastian St. Cyr Mystery, Book 1
5.  What Angels Fear: A Sebastian St. Cyr Mystery, Book 1 by C. S. Harris
The list author says:
  "Great, if dark/violent historical mysteries. The hero is very dark and brooding. The romantic subplot is generally good, if at times a little too full of drama. 1st in a lengthy series."
$7.19   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (167 customer reviews)

The Beekeeper's Apprentice: or, On the Segregation of the Queen (A Mary Russell Mystery)
6.  The Beekeeper's Apprentice: or, On the Segregation of the Queen (A Mary Russell Mystery) by Laurie R. King
The list author says:
  "I honestly thought I wasn't going to like this series...imagine a middle aged Sherlock Holmes interested in a teenage flapper? But I found them to be very intelligent mysteries and the characters somehow very believable. Only downside is it's a lengthy series and by now the format is fairly predictable."
Used & New from: $1.95

Moon Called (Mercy Thompson)
7.  Moon Called (Mercy Thompson) by Patricia Briggs
The list author says:
  "Tough as nails female heroine, mystery and intrigue among vampires and werewolves - if you like True Blood you'll like this series. 1st in a number - and I hope there's more to come!"
Used & New from: $39.50
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (910 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

And Only to Deceive
8.  And Only to Deceive by Tasha Alexander
The list author says:
  "This book, the 1st in a series, was very good and will definitely satisfy fans of the Lady Julia Grey series. Unfortunately the series has lost steam a bit in a way the Grey series hasn't, but a new installment may pick up steam."
Used & New from: $1.61

These Old Shades (Historical Romances)
9.  These Old Shades (Historical Romances) by Georgette Heyer
The list author says:
  "I don't think Georgette Heyer can do any wrong. Discovering her regency romances is like finding out Jane Austen came back from the dead to write another 30 novels. I look forward to reading them all."
$11.12   Used & New from: $3.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (272 customer reviews)

North and South
10.  North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
The list author says:
  "I see Gaskell as a grittier Jane Austen. And again,I'm glad Masterpiece Theatre helped me discover her. Despite being over 100 years old, her dialogue always seems so modern and full of life."
$9.99   Used & New from: $0.03
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (560 customer reviews)

The Hero and the Crown
11.  The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley
The list author says:
  "Robin McKinley is such a fantastic author. I don't think I've ever disliked a book of hers, but this one, which I first read as a teenager, will always be my favorite."
$13.16   Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (322 customer reviews)

The Secret History of the Pink Carnation
12.  The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig
The list author says:
  "Sexy, adventurous, historical, smart. This book is the first in a long series that I'm happy to be reading through. The characters are always so thoroughly likeable - who can resist a smart-mouthed heroine and a dashing rogue?"
$7.99   Used & New from: $0.01
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (209 customer reviews)

Crocodile on the Sandbank (Amelia Peabody, Book 1)
13.  Crocodile on the Sandbank (Amelia Peabody, Book 1) by Elizabeth Peters
The list author says:
  "I have re-read this book at least 3 times and it just keeps getting better. All ages would enjoy this series and the two main characters are simply fantastic. I actually have always wished they would make this book into a movie a la The Mummy."
Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (335 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion
