  • Michael Britt

    Sigh.DNF @ 73%Anyone who knows me knows I hate DNF'ing books. But my tbr is getting out of control so I'm getting a bit more laxed in my DNF policy. I usually 1* DNF books, but this one had some cool elements. But I just failed to connect with any of the characters. I realized that at the 73% mark I just didn't care what the resolution would have been. Might give this a second shot, one day, but for now it's a DNF.


  • All Things Urban Fantasy

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy:MIDNIGHT CURSE is the first in the Disrupted Magic series, but is actually the 10th novel written in the Old World Chronology series by Melissa F. Olson. I didn’t realise it was part of a larger series until after I had finished it, and I didn’t feel like I missed anything by not reading the previous books; in fact, I adored how Scarlett is a more mature, experienced heroine who has tricks up her sleeve and isn’t bumbling around discovering her p [...]


  • Kira

    Technically this is the first book in a new series, but I consider it to be book 4 in the Scarlett Bernard series, which is fine by me since I wasn't happy with the way somethings ended in the last book. This was the best of the Scarlett books yet!There was a time gap of 3 years, so the characters have matured. Scarlett was decisive and knew what she wanted out of life. Despite having relationship issues with Eli, she didn't convince herself she wanted things she didn't to appease him. However E [...]

    What? A mere human is entrusted with keeping the all-powerful supernatural world secret? Go team mere humans! Scarlett is a Null, all she has to do is walk into a room of vampires, werewolves, etc and poof, they become like humans. No power, no fangs, no supernatural speed or even going furry. Her job is to keep the supes from being discovered by the humans. Melissa F. Olson’s MIDNIGHT CURSE is the tale of hidden powers, treachery and the trial of a vampire who may or may not have killed human [...]


  • Obsidian

    This was a straight 3 star book. Nothing really grabbed me, but it wasn't written poorly. I just thought way too much was going on for this first book and have just a general state of confusion occurring while I was reading this. I kept checking to make sure this was the first book in the series, and it is. I was told after the fact that I should have read something called the Scarlett Bernard series first before reading this and my reply was "Seriously? I don't have time to read three other boo [...]


  • Ami

    Midnight Curse is the first installment of what I will call the second arc of Scarlett Bernard series. From what I gathered from Melissa F. Olson's website, this arc -- entitled Disrupted Magic -- will be another trilogy. Timeline wise, it has been three years after Hunter's Trail: Scarlett is living with his werewolf boyfriend, Eli, while ex-LAPD Detective Jesse Cruz is now a divorcé who "stars" in his own book (although a ghostwriter actually done all the work). Midnight Curse starts with Mol [...]

    “Whoever had forced Molly to kill her friends wanted her to get caught, go on trial and be executed before she had a chance to prove her innocence.”About: Scarlett Bernard is a “null,” a human who cancels out any magic around her. Her abilities come in handy on the job—she works to keep the magical world a secret from normal humans in the city of LA. She’s actually starting to enjoy her job, although she's also enjoying the good life with her werewolf boyfriend, Eli, outside of work. [...]


  • Beth

    Fun, fast paced and an urban fantasy that I could really sink my teeth into.


  • Shelley

    *Source* NetGalley*Genre* Urban Fantasy*Rating* 4.0*My Thoughts*Midnight Curse is the first installment in author Melissa F. Olson's Disrupted Magic series. However, it is also book # 4 in the Scarlett Bernard series, and book # 10 in what's being called the Old World Chronicles. Other books in this series features Allison "Lex" Luther's Boundary Magic trilogy. I mentioned Lex, because she makes a brief but all important stop during this story. More later. Recently, thanks to , I purchased the f [...]

    Stream of consciousness.An enjoyable albeit by the numbers urban fantasy. I don't know why, but Scarlett Bernard has never really grabbed me as a character. Not in the way Lex from the Boundary Magic series does. And I can't work out why. Don't get me wrong, this is a good book, but it's not a great book. Except for the dog. Everything about the dog was great. So if you want some entertaining fluff, Midnight Curse delivers. But if you want my recommendation, read Boundary Crossed


  • Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey)

    Okay, I didn't read this book. I happened to like Eli and how things ending in the other trilogy. I hated how she changed him to justify a breakup at the end of this book. I didn't get far in this book, so I won't leave a rating. However, I got far enough to get the feeling where this book was headed and search out spoilers to confirm what I suspected. I feel like the author wrote it this way to please the Jesse fans. While I liked the guy, I didn't like him enough. Eli well he's great. I won't [...]


  • Mandapanda

    I discovered Melissa F. Olson's books via her second series Boundary Magic. When I went back to read the Scarlet Bernard trilogy I was slightly less impressed. Traditionally I'm not a fan of love triangles but by the end of the series, Scarlet had chosen her love, Eli, who had proven himself true in every way.So colour me surprised (and not entirely satisfied) to find this new book which is set several years later, turns that ending on its head. I guess I can understand that needed to be done so [...]


  • Barbara (The Bibliophage)

    Full review at TheBibliophageI’ve enjoyed all of Melissa F. Olson’s previous books, and Midnight Curse is no exception. This is what I call a “popcorn book,” derived from the term “popcorn movie.” There’s plenty of fluff, it’s truly escapist, and it may not be the most high-minded book I’ll read this year. But sometimes that just what I need!I happened to read this in a week when I was juggling a lot of stressful stuff. So, it was the perfect antidote, although it took me longe [...]


  • Steph

    This new series features Scarlett Bernard and is a continuation of the series that started with DEAD SPOTS. Three years have past since we last hooked up with Scarlett and she's learned a lot, now able to better control her power as a null. Even though I recommend reading all of the other books in Olson's Old World Series (Scarlett Bernard & Boundary Magic), it's not necessary to follow the story told in this book. I'm glad Olson is continuing stories within this world. It was good to reunit [...]

    Disclaimer: eARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. Version: Intermediately read/listened to the kindle & audio versions of this book. Release Date: 02/07/2017 (Currently available on Kindle Unlimited for free.)Review to come. 3.5 stars


  • Katelyn (Lost as Alice, Mad as the Hatter)

    "If I couldn’t free Molly legally, I was damned well going to have a plan."Scarlett is a human with a unique ability that has landed her in a gig with a vampire boss- she is a walking null for all magic. Vampires are human around her. Witches cannot cast spells at her or in her presence. Even werewolves lose their lupine mojo when they get within 15 feet. Because of this, she has been tasked to keep L.A.'s rather extensive magic community away from human eyes. She is the clean-up crew for the [...]


  • Sophie

    Totally reminder me of the October Daye series!


  • Hollie

    This was a unique read for this genre. I liked how it flowed more like a suspenseful read rather than your typical paranormal read. I'll definitely check out more of this writers work. It's an added bonus it being offered as a kindleunlimited.


  • Fangs for the Fantasy

    Scarlett’s job, as the null in Los Angeles, is to clear up any evidence that the Old World exists: to keep humans ignorant that vampires, werewolves and witches walk among themLos Angeles is a unique city – the three factions work together as equals to form an uneasy peace – and Scarlett’s job is vital for maintaining that peace among such fragile politicsWhich is when she finds her friend, a vampire, surrounded by corpses killed by her own fangs… and Scarlett must try and find justice [...]


  • Una

    Not having read another book by this author I was at somewhat of a disadvantage trying to figure everything out in the beginning, but within a short few pages everything made sense. This will definitely not be the last I read from her as I was thoroughly captivated and drawn in to the story.


  • Marjolein

    3.5 Stars Full review to come!


  • Amyiw

    4 1/2So it did take a while to get into this for me but I don't think it was the fault of the book so much but that it is a spin off and I didn't already know the characters. I didn't feel for them yet a lot was happening. In the end I got to know the characters and really liked when I got 3rd person Jesse's POV. I think that is where it kind of took off for me. The ending is a little convoluted but really good how it ends. There were a couple of things that I would have liked differently. (view [...]


  • Dorothy

    I got this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, but they can have some of my blood for their vampires, too, because they found me a new favorite. Five stars! Six stars! Seven stars!!!!In high school, I developed a mild Laurell K Hamilton addiction. Anita Blake was a badass vampire hunter who negotiated, blackmailed, fought, and kissed her way into all the vampire and were-creature drama of St. Louis. I loved every moment of it- and there got to be a LOT of the kissing after a fe [...]


  • Amy

    I feel like I'm missing something here. Is this a spinoff of another series? Because there seems to be a lot of back story (ex best friends, estranged roommates, guy that vied for her attention but she chose to be with her current BF of 2+ years instead). I don't mind jumping into a story with an already realized heroine (as opposed to discovering her world and powers together), but the infodump is boring the hell out of me. And I'm only in chapter one!


  • Dutch

    DNF Scarlet was annoying and whiny.ow up!


  • Robin

    I really like these books. I think to get the full effect you need to start at the beginning to understand all the relationships and how they fit together. I'm so glad there are more of these coming. Also glad Scarlett has teamed up with Jessie. Always liked him.


  • Elisa

    Love this series! A few years have passed since the first three book story arc and our favorite humans have changed a little bit. But they all pull it together to kick some supernatural butt. Freaking good stuff. Our favorite null is doing her thing, weird stuff is happening and they pull it together. Our MC may not be the strongest para on the block, but she is a survivor and she stands by her friends. A scrapper extraordinaire. This book swaps POV chapters with another lovable MC once they mee [...]


  • Julia

    I read this because of Kim's five star review on All Things Urban Fantasy, and she didn't steer me wrong. Scarlet is mature, competent, and a joy to tag along with. I loved the grown up pragmatism in her relationships, too, something that is a rare special thing in even the best fiction. I've always admired how Charlaine Harris lets her characters date and love in a very realistic way, this series seems to offer the same. Looking forward to more!

    Shifters, Vampires, and Witches…oh my!I received a complimentary ARC copy of Midnight Curse (Disrupted Magic #1) by Melissa F. Olson from NetGalley in order to read and give an honest review.I’m new to Melissa F.Olson’s work and I should ask myself…what was I waiting for?I really enjoyed this book, her voice is unique, her characters interesting and a plot that kept me turning pages well into the wee hours of the morning. The protagonist is a cleaner of sorts, she cleans up magical “cr [...]


  • Angie

    *Copy received through Netgalley for voluntary review.*It was nice catching up with Scarlett and the gang again. Midnight Curse takes place three years after the end of Hunter's Trail. (Midnight Curse begins a new series but I recommend reading the Scarlett Bernard series and even the Boundary Magic series prior to reading this).Scarlett has had a rather quiet life since then. Even being the null of L.A. has been pretty uneventful. And she and Eli are still going strong (for now). But when Molly [...]
