This is the 15th book in the Out of the Box series.

 

Living in exile in London, Sienna must keep her end of a bargain with the British government to secretly police Meta-Human crime in return for asylum. So when a series of murders take place in Scotland that could only have been done by a Meta-Human, Sienna jets off to catch the culprit.

But from the begining she knows that this case will be complicated, by the fact that the criminal is obviously a Sucubus like her; which means that she will be related to them somehow. Not to mention that Wolfe, the first and most vicsious voice in her head, is acting strange. He knows something, but isn’t spilling the beans, and Sienna is filled with doubt because she knows what will happen if this unknown Succubus is more powerful than she is.

When the two meet, Sienna learns just how scary it is for the rest of the world to come up againts someone like her.

On a personal note, I have loved reading a book set in Edinburgh as it is my most favourite city in the whole world.

The next book in the series is called Badder.

Small Things by Robert J. Crane (16 years and over) SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT READ UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THE PRECEADING BOOKS IN THE SERIES!

Title: Small Things.

Author: Robert J. Crane.

Year of Publication: 2017 (UK).

Publishers: Revlen Press (UK).

Website: http://www.robertjcrane.com

Cost for Paperback (RRP): £15.99 (UK).

Format: Available in paperback, and as an ebook.

Age Range: 16 and over. If you are younger than this then I suggest asking your parents first.

This is the 14 book in the Out of the Box series.

 

Sienna is growing as a person. She no longer sees herself as the ultimate badass who can’t be beaten, but getting her head blown to pieces in the last book by a couple of kids, and only being saved by her polar opposite (Kat) made her re-evaluate her perspective. She is learning that she is only one person, despite the voices in her head.

But it is the voices in her head who have given her the most trouble in the past that are surprisingly the ones who are most useful now. Especially when an old pain in her ass turns up on her doorstep in need of help. He’s a man that Sienna has always disliked, but is persuaded that not even he deserves to die. So, she is forced into taking on his fight to save his life. But her enemy is not like her usual foes; this one is smart, and Sienna must learn to ask for help in order to succeed, especially when the root of the problem is the same organisation that her brother and his team are also investigating.

I’m really glad that this series has started to change direction a little, away from the whole ‘Sienna is Queen’ thing that was getting a little repetitive. Sienna is a great character, so it is good to see her growing and changing as a person, and learning to accept that she might always be an outcast. Though luckily for her, at the end of the book an unexpected opportunity arises for her that could give her some respite from being the most hunted person in America.

The next book in the series is called Hunters, and will be released on 25th July 2017.

This is the 13th book in a series called Out of the Box.

 

I’ve been reading this series for a while now, and I have been wondering what the author would do to keep the series interesting and full of energy. So I was very pleased that this book mixed things up in an unexpected way.

Sienna is the most powerful Meta in the world, even with her brother and a few others being pumped up with extra power from a syrum. She flies, she can shoot fire and use herself as a bomb to destroy cities, she can read your mind, send you mad, and heal from most mortal wounds in seconds, and that is just a few of her powers. Oh and don’t forget that she can absorb your soul, along with another Meta’s powers, through her skin. She is also on the top of the Most Wanted List for a long list of crimes, most of which she is innocent of.

Because of that she is on a permanent holiday on a tropical island, secretly funding a Meta detective agency, all with money she stole from a criminal, eating and drinking her way into nothing-ness. So when her ex, the man supposedly in charge of arresting her, turns up and asks for help, she is caustiuos of a trap. She decides to help anyway, though the hardest part is dealing with the awkwardness of working with her ex, who’s memories she stole. That is until she walks into a bank robbery, and discovers her own arrogance might just be her undoing.

The incident forces Sienna to re-evaluate her whole life, or at least what is left of it, and the relationships she has failed to value.

The next book in the series is called Small Things, and will be released on 16th May 2017.

This is the 12th book in a series called Out of the Box.

 

Sienna has come a long way from the girl who was locked in a box by her mother as punishment as a teenager. She is now the most powerful meta-human in the world, but also the most wanted person in the world, and she’s not guilty of all the things she is accused of. And of the things she is guilty of, many have been twisted by those who want her out of the way.

So when an opportunity arrisses for her to clear her name, you’d think she’d jump at the chance. Only her clearing her own name means screwing everyone else over, and that would mean throwing away everything she has been trying to do since she left her mothers house. With help from sources she wasn’t expecting, Sienna faces off with a meta who plans to through the world into chaos, by simply pressing a few buttons.

But Sienna isn’t the only one growing as a person; her brother Reed has started to realise that he has the potential to be a force in his own right, and is starting to realise just how his sister has had to deal with being a badass.

This is the 10h book in a series called Out of the Box.

 

Most people who think the whole world hates them, haven’t really got things quite that bad, but when it comes to Sienna Nealon; the whole world really does hate her. But then, when the President of the United States tells everyone that you’re a violent and murderous criminal who thinks she is above the law, being hated is to be expected.

But that isn’t Sienna’s biggest problem at the moment. Her biggest problem is that the real violent and murderous criminals who she has spent years locking up in a meta-human prison have been released. Many are no match for her, but some of them are not people you wouldn’t want teaming up to kill you, and they are all gunning for Sienna. That leaves her in a tight spot, because the whole world is waiting for her to make a mistake, so that she can be locked up herself. So when Sienna is faced with a fight she can’t win without making one hell of a mess, she (and the souls trapped in her head) is left with only one option; but it’s the one that will only confirm what everyone else thinks of her.

The next book in the series is called Unyielding.
