Interview with the Author
Q: What makes the Alex Noziak series special?
A: The series is a combination of things. It features a modern female covert team acting as a secret combat squad for the Invisible Recruit Agency, protecting mankind from supernatural threats and enemies. It is part urban fantasy series, part paranormal mystery series, and part supernatural or occult crime series. Think Buffy the Vampire slayer meets Supernatural with a star-crossed romance thrown in and you've got it in one!
Q: Is there a particular order that the books should be read in?
A: While each book or novella can stand alone, I think readers will get more enjoyment out of them if they follow this sequence:
Invisible Prison (eNovella) Invisible Magic Invisible Duty (eNovella) Invisible PowerInvisible FateInvisible Fears (Kelly McAllister Book 1) Invisible Allies (eNovella)Invisible Secrets (Kelly McAllister Book 2)Invisible Journey
What makes the series different from other urban fantasy series?
A: First, the events of the story occur on a world scale vs. the single location of many of the other popular UF series. The Alex Noziak stories occur in locations such as Paris, the Maldives, Washington, D.C., and Africa. Secondly, while all of the storylines in the Alex Noziak series include action-oriented fight sequences which readers of this genre love, they also contain a lot of what isn't typical for most urban fantasy--emotional growth and development of the main characters. Alex must deal with the dynamics of a strong female team as well as interference from her shaman father, her shapeshifting brothers and her Celtic witch mother. Relationships are messy, but they also add a fun, deeper dimension to Alex. Third, unlike many other paranormal romance series on the market today, there isn't a primary focus on a happy ever after relationship that's resolved in one book; if you want your heroine hooking up with a hot warlock, you've definitely come to the right place, but expect cliff hanging endings as the relationship is not tied up with a pretty bow after book one.
To help readers know what the Alex Noziak books are like, what would you compare them to?
A: I think the series is well-suited for readers of Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series, Kat Richardson's Greywalker series, and Illona Andrews Kate Daniels series. Fans of television shows like Supernatural, Angel, True Blood (without all the graphic sex scenes), and Witchblade should also find something of interest here.
Cover to cover action
I just stayed up all night again, reading Mary Buckham's latest urban fantasy, Invisible Embrace. I was introduced to this series a couple of years ago. I thought it an interesting concept: a group of young ladies, each with a "special ability" join a special group to protect the world from preternatural beings intent on taking over the world. Now, these special abilities are not super powers and the ladies don't even know how to use those abilities well. Over the course of the series, the ladies struggle to learn how to accept and use those abilities while thrown head first into missions that take them all over the world, even to Hell itself. Although I had never read much in this particular genre, I have become a big fan because the main characters are so interesting, and the action, nonstop. I love the pure escapism.
This book, Invisible Embrace, is the third in the "Kelly series". Kelly is an unassuming kindergarten teacher from the Midwest, who is stunned to learn who her real parents are and what her destiny is. This fast paced book delivers, and how. I read it in one sitting and I can't wait for the next. Mary Buckham is a superb story teller and each book in the series is better than the one before. You could read this book on its own and it would make sense, as the author does a good job bringing new readers up to speed. However, I recommend getting in on the full story. You can visit marybuckham.com to check out all her books and get in on some special pricing.
However, if you choose to jump in right here, you won't be disappointed. Join Kelly as she returns to her childhood home to try and learn the truth about her heritage. The Midwest has never been so exciting.
