This is a new feature I developed where each month we will look at our favorite – the best – series in a genre or topic.

The topic here, by my definition,  is a series with characters who are Aliens.    These are the ones which came to mind.  I enjoyed some more than others.  They seem to fall mostly into the romance or scifi genres.

Since I haven’t read everything, it’s a subset of the possibilities.  I’m sure I am forgetting some great authors. There are also plenty of authors I have yet to read. Please share your favorites with me in the comments, also.

My favorite Aliens series are (in no particular order):



Midnight Breed                                       Lost Fleet Universe                              Midsolar Murders
by Lara Adrian                                          by Jack Campbell                                      by Mur Lafferty



Ice Planet Barbarians                            Alien Castaways, Alien Mate              Hell Squad, Galactic Gladiators
by Ruby Dixon                                                   by Cara Bristol                               by Anna Hackett

  1. I’ve read and enjoyed all those, but the Jack Campbells and those are a when not if. I also like Veronica Scott’s Badari Warriors series, Ilona Andrew’s Innkeeper Chronicles (go Orro, my fav), Ann Aguirre’s Galactic Love, Gail Koger’s Coletti Warlords, Nnedi Okorafor’s Binti, Patty Jansen’s Ambassador, and I’ll stop there. Love this theme, obviously.

  2. OH – that’s true about Midnight Breeds… I forgot. It’s marketed as vampire books, but they are aliens! I’ve also read one of Bristol’s series, but not that one, and many years ago, I read a Hackett Cyborg/alien series. I think the most “alien” series I’ve read is Ann Aguirre’s Galactic Love… that was some cross-species romance happening!

    I included Kresley Cole’s Immortals after Dark series, since there are some aliens in it, and I also included Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians series (Ami is an alien) and the Aldebarian Alliance series where some of the immortal guardians find love with aliens out in the universe!
