Some great m/m book series

I love a good book series.  The world is already built in my imagination and the characters are already beloved, so when I can pick up a new book and carry on where the story left off, it's pure heaven.  Sometimes a series can go on a bit too long, true, but for the most part, I'm always looking forward to the next one.  And I sincerely hate having to wait for that next one to get written!

When I started reading m/m books, I was delightfully surprised to find so many great series, and I don't mean great for just that genre, but fantastic overall.  So here's some series I've really enjoyed, although this is certainly not all of them (and best of all, some of these authors have more than one great series):

By Josh Lanyon (the Adrien English Mysteries):

Fatal Shadows   A Dangerous Thing (Adrien E...   The Hell You Say (Adrien En...   Death of a Pirate King (Adr...   The Dark Tide

Excellent mysteries, great writing and at one point in the series, I have to say I have never hated a ficitional character as much as I did Jake Riordan.  I could've thrown my Kindle.

By Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban (the Cut & Run series, with more to come):

Cut & Run (Cut & Run #1)   Sticks & Stones (Cut & Run,...   Fish & Chips (Cut & Run, #3)   Divide & Conquer (Cut & Run...   Armed & Dangerous (Cut & Ru...

Loved both main characters, even when they sometimes hate each other.

By Jordan Castillo Price (the Psycop series, with, hopefully, more to come):

Among the Living (PsyCop, #1)   Criss Cross (PsyCop, #2)   Body and Soul (PsyCop, #3)  Secrets (PsyCop, #4)   Camp Hell (PsyCop, #5)   GhosTV (PsyCop, #6)

I love the main character Vic and his warped sense of humor.  I also love paranormal, so this was a great series for me.

By Mary Calmes (the Warder series):

His Hearth (Warder #1)   Tooth & Nail (Warder #2)   Heart in Hand (Warder #3)   Sinnerman (Warder #4)   Nexus (Warder #5)   Cherish Your Name (Warder, #6)

Paranormal, with each book focusing on different, but related characters.  Novellas.  Sinnerman was my favorite.

By Lynn Flewelling (the Nightrunner series - not strictly m/m, but mainstream fantasy)

Luck in the Shadows (Nightr...   Stalking Darkness (Nightrun...   Traitor's Moon (Nightrunner...   Shadows Return (Nightrunner...   The White Road (Nightrunner...   Glimpses: A Collection Of N...

Excellent fantasy world with great characters.  There's also a complimentary series set in the same world, but in a different time period and also excellent.

Can't wait to find my next favorite series.  Feel free to email me your suggestions at! You can check on Goodreads to see if I've already found it first, if you like.

As for myself, I'm hoping to someday finish A Trick of the Light (next after A Thread of Deepest Black) and to edit down to manageable size A Kiss of Tears and Thorns and maybe have a series of my own...
