The Series Starter Collection

Lose yourself in a series with our collection of first books in science fiction, fantasy, murder mysteries, and more...

I love a good long book series. Getting lost in a fictional setting is a great feeling.

Taking that first step into a series, exploring new worlds, ideas, characters, histories, events. It's my perfect read. So it makes sense that we would stock quite a few series at Scarlet Ferret. Each book a Special Edition, with the promise of even more extras with each entry.

We've compiled this collection of first books in a series to get you started and help you discover your next favourite(s)!

Enjoy!

Why you'll love Silver Moon

What a fun read! Menopausal werewolves, a town to protect, and a love to be found.

Becca didn't think the change was THAT literal. But that's what you get in Wolf's Point, I suppose. The name must come from somewhere...

A great concept, and lovely, warm, fast-paced writing.

Can't wait for Book 2!

Fermi's Progress: Dyson's Fear

Why you'll love Fermi's Progress: Dyson's Fear

This book got me hooked!

It delivers hard science fiction, pathos, beautifully dark comedy, a dig at every lazy sci-fi trope in existence, plenty of laughs, and is simply a must-read.

You know what you're getting into from the clever book titles. The humour is Jonathan Swift meets Red Dwarf. And the science is terrifyingly accurate...

...unfortunately!

Dragon Sisters

Enter a world of fantasy and magic and recipes set in Qing China. What happens when Xiao Xiao, a daughter of an Imperial Courtesan, finds a magical green pearl in the hands of her adoptive little sister?

Why you'll love Dragon Sisters

Chng's calm, unpretentious prose leaves the reader free to follow the sentences without having to work out the meaning. The eye just slides down the page without a hitch, the words fuelling the imagination without slowing things down with unnecessary over-description. Her characters are matter-of-fact and impulsive and despite being young, are not foolish, and she doesn't patronise the reader. The story moves fast and keeps you interested.

R/evolution

by Tenea D. Johnson

In the near-future US the struggle for survival pushes citizens to breaking point as relationships fracture along lines of class and race.

Why you'll love R/evolution

Thoughtful, precisely written, well-designed and powerful, Johnson's R/evolution is a book filled with likeable, admirable, 3-D characters (as well as some unpleasant ones). It's about the future struggle for Black emancipation, but while it plainly acknowledges the basic right of that desire, it draws attention to the flaws of extreme thinking, the quandaries that must be considered or else the cause be willfully misunderstood (and even when they are considered, it still is), and underscores how easily equality is ripped away from-or never even truly within the grasp-of those who have always been systematically and systemically oppressed. It's about classism and racism, systemised and individual. I loved it and I'm hungry for the next part, Evolution. If you want books that are truly meaningful, this one's for you.

Becoming Crone

by Lydia M Hawke

Divorced, menopausal grandmothers with creaky hips and hot flashes don't just randomly discover they're next in a long line of powerful women protecting the world from the dark magick of Mages.

Why you'll love Becoming Crone

Fans of urban fantasy looking for a protagonist who is a little more... mature, will love Becoming Crone. Claire has seen it all, or so she thinks. Her world-weariness, her highly-developed lack of trust, and her not-unexpected ability to expect things to go wrong make her the perfect character to introduce us to a world of witches, gargoyles, werewolves, and witches, plenty of witches.
