PNR/UF Stand-Alone Books

Since series books have almost overran this genre, I am looking for good stand-alone books (a whole story completed at the end of the book...what a concept...LOL!) that belongs to either genre.

message 1: by Jan Lewis, (new)

Jan Lewis, Author Sidekick Hush, Hush and Beautiful Creatures aren't standalones, just the only book released in their series so far.


message 2: by Shanon (last edited Feb 22, 2010 09:39PM) (new)

Shanon The Host also has a sequel coming out next year though it can be read as a stand-alone as well.


message 3: by Jen (jlkish) (new)

Jen (jlkish) Intertwined is also the first book in a series, not a stand-alone.


message 4: by Sandy (new)

Sandy I believe that the sequel to Spellbent is being published in October


message 5: by Sandy (new)

Sandy I'm not sure how to add books to the list but here are some UF/fantasy books that are stand alone
Monster by A. Lee Martinez
Gil's All Fright Diner by A Lee Martinez
The Demon's Librarian by Lilith Saintcrow
Cowboy and the Vampire by Clark Hays
Vampire Tapestry by Suzee McKee Charnas
Folk of the Air by Peter S Beagle
The Last Unicorn by Peter S Beagle


message 6: by Shannon (new)

Shannon Sandy, you add books by searching for them in the box on the top right that says find/add books to list.


message 7: by Mrs.soule (new)

Mrs.soule Some of the books I added might be more fantasy then strictly paranormal but I included them as we've allowed them in PNR group challenges.


message 9: by Shannon (new)

Shannon Both Fallen and Hush, Hush are parts of series.


message 10: by Mrs.soule (new)

Mrs.soule so is Intertwined I believe


message 11: by Deborah (new)

Deborah Intertwined by Gena Showalter is not a stand-alone.
The second one Unraveled will be released in August. I'm not sure what the series should be called, should I just label it Aden Stone or leave it as is?


message 12: by Deborah (new)

Deborah Blood Song (Bloodsinger, #1) by Cat Adams is not a stand-alone, second book will be Blood Siren.

Indigo Springs by A.M. Dellamonica is not a stand-alone, second book will be Blue Magic.


message 13: by Shannon (new)

Shannon You know you could just take them off the list ...


message 14: by Deborah (new)

Deborah No, actually I didn't know that.


message 15: by MJ (new)

MJ The dark divine is part of a series, second book is called The lost saint.


message 16: by Thara (new)

Thara I can't believe how many books are on this list that I haven't heard of before! I LOVE Goodreads!


message 17: by Phoenixfalls (new)

Phoenixfalls I added Blood and Iron & American Gods to the list because while they each have a sequel, the novels themselves have a complete plot arc and so they stand-alone IMO.


message 18: by Elentarri (last edited Jul 10, 2013 12:59AM) (new)

Elentarri Elf Defense and New York By Night can be read alone. Each book is a separate story.

Faerie Tale is really good. :)


message 19: by Carly (new)

Carly Sorry for adding Hawksong! It was right after I added I remembered its part of series....oops. (never cared for the others books after Snakecharm)
