But after a sudden revelation turns Scarlett’s world upside down, she panics and leaves town without warning, leaving Shadow with her partner, Jesse.

Scarlett finds herself in a situation that she desperately needs to find some unbiased and private advice. So, Scarlett and Molly head of to Vegas, leaving Jesse watching Shadow, Scarlett’s bargest. Putting Jesse in the crosshairs of a past enemy and Shadow missing.

Finding herself way out of her league and with the ones she holds most dear at risk, Scarlett has to pull out all the stops.

Amazing, action intense, unexpected and with out a doubt a new favorite, Shadow Hunt is one of those reads you

Shadow Hunt by Melissa F Olson and narrated by Amy McFadden is book three in the series. Scarlet is very hormonal, a group is trying to take Shadow, a Great Hunt is coming and more! This is packed with action, emotions, and fantastic fantasy! Can't wait for the next book!
Narration is fantastic too as usual!
On the Hunt for more Melissa Olson

I didn’t find this book quite as engrossing as the previous novel, nonetheless, I am still in love with the snark and hellraising of Scarlett Bernard.

The quality and encompassing world that Melissa Olson has built wraps around the reader entirely enveloping a journey of ups, downs, and excitement. These novels are fast paced and keep you up into the night glued to the pages. There’s no explicit sex but plenty of romance woven into the books to even out

Shadow Hunt is the third installment in author Melissa F. Olson's Disrupted Magic trilogy. If you've read Blood Gamble, the second installment in this new trilogy, you know that our protagonist, Scarlett Bernard, got stunning news at the end of that story that has put her in a very difficult and dangerous position. Especially if anyone with a grudge against her finds out. But, what's even more disconcerting, is that a former enemy has

4.5 stars - After a short prolog to introduce the villain, Shadow Hunt picks up pretty much at the point of the Big Bombshell revelation that ended the previous book and Scarlett and Molly scurry off to Lex's neck of the woods to gather more info on Scarlett's situation. She leaves Jesse in charge of Shadow and he gets caught in the crossfire and suddenly Scarlett's whole world is in danger.

Boy was Shadow Hunt good. I have to admit that I never thought that I was going to like Scarlett as much

I loved this newest edition of Scarlett's story. I love that Lex was also in the story. This is the best ever.

When I saw a new book by Melissa F. Olsen was out I knew I had to catch up on the series. I enjoyed reading the start of this series a few years ago but couldn't really remember what had happened, so i reread them, then jumped straight into the spin off series Boundary Magic. Having the whole series fresh in my head really helped me in following the story for Shadow Hunt, especially with the mentions of characters from Boundary Magic.

Shadow Hunt begins with possibly the biggest surprise, it as

While Scarlett travels to Colorado to gain some insight into her "situation", Jesse and Shadow are kidnapped by some french witches. Jesse is recovered but is in bad shape, which makes Scarlett realize how much she cares about him - aw! She returns to LA to figure out what these witches are up to, why, and how she can get Shadow back.

I'm really enjoying this series. I especially love how accurate the author's description of how things are in Los Angeles. I find myself smiling because I've made

Nulls are infertile. Everyone knows this. Scarlett certainly knows this

So being pregnant was… unexpected to say the least and raised all kinds of implications which she has to learn about quickly

But the luparii witches have arrived - they want their Barghest back (Scarlett’s cute pet abomination) and more - they plan something big - possibly apocalyptic and Scarlett is the key to stopping it and likely much much more.

I think this book represents a rather excellently timed shift. After two books

Well, that was a couple of unexpected turns of events. It will be interesting to see where Olson takes this now.

Exceptional narration, too.

Another Gem from Melissa F Olson

Since the day I first discovered the Boundary Magic series, I have devoured every single book this author has put out. This latest installment to Scarlet Bernard's story is definitely one of the best. It wraps so many things up brilliantly while still leaving you aching for more. The tie-in to the Boundary series was so amazing that I've gone back to re-read that series. I highly recommend this book.

I first met Scarlett Bernard in Dead Spots and have followed her every since. This is book three is the second trilogy and the story just keeps getting better. Molly and Jesse are back and important characters in this story. The big surprise is something that Scarlett never expected. That surprise drives this plot and causes no end of trouble. When Scarlett unexpectedly leaves town an old enemy arrives and starts to take revenge. This is a fast paced story that ends with a new relationship ...more

I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this one and I just couldn't put it down. This was my favorite of the Scarlett books. Olson has created an interesting and realistic shared world between the Scarlett and Lex books. She also has two awesome and badass female protagonists. That being said, I am much more fond of Scarlett and she gets quite the adventure here. This is a really great read with enough action and mystery to keep anyone entertained (there is even some romance thrown in if ...more
**Copy provided through Netgalley for voluntary review.**

Lots of forward progression in this book. And some squee-worthy moments. Olson isn't usually focused on the romance aspect but I loved it this time. I also loved Will's storyline at the end. Lots to smile about. This book felt final but Olson likes to leave things a little bit open. Scarlett is a badass, I could read about her adventures forever. Well done.

Sad, I liked Scarlett but I’m not team Jesse. For that reason I didn’t finish the first book in this set of trilogy series. I like Lex. So I hope I won’t be lost if and when another Lex series comes along.

I take a point of for cliff hangers. With a decent ending on a book, there's usually a sense of satisfaction / contentment on finishing. I enjoy Melissa's writing WITH THE EXCEPTION that you get to the end and your looking for another page, cause, really this isn't the end of this book?!? It happens on each one, the end feels like having a door slammed in your face, abrupt and very unsatisfying. I so wish she'd drop her infatuation with cliff hangers.

I just can't seem to get enough of Scarlett and her friends.

A lot happens in SHADOW HUNT to wrap up the storyline that has been building in the past two books. If you have not read book two, BLOOD GAMBLE, do not continue to read my review as there will be spoilers for that book included.

As we know from the ending of BLOOD GAMBLE, Scarlett brought a little something home with her from Vegas. SHADOW HUNT sends her on the hunt for answers about what the future will hold for her child. I loved

This series is exactly why you should check Kindle daily deals, which is where I found the first book and thought I'd give it a go. I've started at completely the wrong end of Scarlett Bernard's story - this is the second trilogy - but I'll definitely be going back and reading the first trilogy, and the other books set in this universes too.

Scarlett is a null - she renders magical creatures (vampires, werewolves, witches) human when she is in their presence. (Rather like Gail Carrigher's

Olson rocks this book. By now, we know our characters and world and Scarlett shines in this. Things come together, some ass is kicked, scary things happen, people do stuff. You know, stuff!
I love Shadow, she is amazing. The triumvirate has to pull together, we don't see them a lot, this book really is more about Scarlett and her growth, but they have to mete out some old world hurt and it is awesome. AND, it ends with the promise of more to come. So yay!
So, if you like Urban Fantasy, you

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre: general fiction(adult), Sci-fi and Fantasy.
I love this series, and the sister series set in the same world. It was that one, featuring Quinn and Lex that brought me the the Old World, and let me to buying more and being lucky enough to have some review ARCs too.

I love Scarlett, she's in a tough and dangerous world, has to do things that her heart really isn't in, but which are necessary to protect

I couldn’t put this book down after reading Midnight Curse and Blood Gamble! Even after what happened in the end of the last book, Scarlett Bernard manages to get herself into situations that only she can fix. I think she has even more snark and sass than the previous books and she finally chooses the right guy! It felt like there was a lot more going on in this book, but it didn’t feel rushed and I was extremely satisfied with the ending. I hope there is another series spin off because I’m not ...more
Just love this series! Another exciting book with so much going on. This one picks up where the last left off. I sure hope there is a follow up to this one. There wasn’t a cliffhanger but there is so much happening in everyone’s lives that it would be a shame to not see them again. Amy McFadden does a great job narrating.

Another good story

This book showed up in my Kindle at just the right moment. I've yet to be disappointed with a Scarlet story. I'm from Pasadena so I always like to hear about the places and nearby cities as I read. I was hoping the book would center on Scarlet being pregnant and primarily focus on that, so I'm a little bummed that didn't happen. I was also looking for some insight as to how Eli felt about everything. But I'm happy with the new development with her and Jesse and overall the

Ending arc of this set of books. Scarlett is in the middle of the largest personal crisis of her life when an old enemy returns to town with a plan to devastate the entire supernatural community. Good finish to this storyline with a setup for some future appearances of Scarlett and crew in Olson's other series.

This is ten stars!

This is so good. It deserves a ten star rating. I love these characters. It’s a standalone but it has favorite characters that just keeps me glued to the kindle and listening to the audible version until the last page. I know I will go back and re-read book one, two and this one in the next two weeks just to keep these characters close. Highly recommend the audible. Narration is excellent. I want a Shadow for my own as well as a Jesse!

I re-read the two previous Disrupted Magic books so that I’d be ready for today, and was thrilled when this book downloaded this evening (in Australia). My only grump is that I finished too soon and there are so many more things I want to know - but will there be a Disrupted Magic book 4 or will we be lucky enough to get another trilogy that continues on? I don’t care, I’d just like more please!
