Paranormal Police Department
Suggested Reading Order
The suggested reading order is to start with the Las Vegas PPD books, going from The Merging through through Clash of Flames. The short stories, including The Bleeding and The Chief are just little looks into the past based on fan requests. They’re not necessary to understand the full world of the PPD, but they’re fun reads that lend a little backstory. Blind Date is just a one-off that happened because fans were asking to see what would happen if Ian Dex went on a blind date.
Once you’re done with the Las Vegas precinct, jump into the Netherworld PPD and read through that set.
Reading the Las Vegas and Netherworld precincts will give you all the world insights you need to fully understand any other precinct in the series. Technically, you only need to read through Blood Bane Tower in the Las Vegas PPD series and all of Netherworld to have enough of an understanding, but there are nuances in the rest of the Las Vegas books that will help you along.
Once you have the generalities down, it won’t matter if you decide to jump to New York first or Seattle or Southeast Asia or even the Badlands.
Las Vegas Paranormal Police Department
Ian Dex is a genetically-engineered cocktail of man, beast, and magic. His heightened senses propelled him to chief of paranormal police in Las Vegas… and gave him a ravenous sexual appetite.
Netherworld Paranormal Police Department
Piper Shaw & Reaper Payne are Retrievers, meaning they have the job of going topside to bring back any super who has overstayed their welcome. Piper is an immortal bad ass. She doesn’t take shit from anyone. Reaper is a…well, reaper. He’s still learning the ropes, but with Piper as his partner, he’s on a crash course.
Southeast Asia Paranormal Police Department
Mark Vedis is an average cop. Average for a mage in the Paranormal Police Department, anyway. After years of doing the jobs nobody else wanted, his career, and life, seemed to be on hold. Then he met a foul-mouthed demon who filled him with power, turned him into a warlock, and dumped him into a world of wealth and debauchery that was disturbing at best.
Southeast Asia Paranormal Police Department – Bert Stories
Bert is part of Mark Vedis’s world, sure…but he also has a life of his own, and it’s usually pretty messed up! Kind of goes with the territory of being the prince of the demons.
Seattle Paranormal Police Department
Savanna Sage is a cop who has plans to rise to the top. Too bad the cards are stacked against in from the start. She’s thrown in with a team of misfits, her boss is an ass, and she has to constantly strive to overcome an inferiority complex based on the fact that she’s half fae, half mage.
Shadow Paranormal Police Department
Wren is a witch who is also a thief. Unfortunately, she got caught during a sting operation by a PPD chief who had been tracking her for years. Instead of throwing her in jail, though, he offers her the option of becoming a living search warrant.
New York Paranormal Police Department
Bethany is one of only two remaining weretigers. Sheltered all her life, she finally gets the chance to break out and flex her claws. She becomes a cop in the New York Paranormal Police Department, where it’s fast and crazy. The problem is, she’s required to have body guards since she’s on the extinction list.
Badlands Paranormal Police Department
Welcome to the Badlands PPD where Chief Ezekias ‘Zeke’ Phoenix, a dragon who believes rules are meant to be followed, has accepted his new post. His job is simple, keep the fragile peace between dragons, hellions, and the denizens of hell intact. The rules are straightforward in Infernal City: mind your business, watch your back, shoot first, and don’t bother asking questions.
Black Ops Paranormal Police Department – Sinister
The Black Ops Paranormal Police Department is a hidden organization that spends the majority of its time with information-gathering and assassinations. Evangeline of House Sinister, has been forced to work for the Black Ops PPD as she fights to survive one year…you see, she’s got assassins on her ass, too.
