Christine Warren – The Others Series Reading Order

by Maryse on May 6, 2009 · 31 comments

in Christine Warren, Reading Order Guide:

LATEST UPDATE: June 24th 2011 –>BIG NOTE on this reading order list. As per the author, this is the TRUE order of her books, (including her e-books) for the series “The Others”. It appears some of her stories had/have different publishers, (and were titled differently in past releases). While they can each be read as stand alone books, this guide lists the books in the order in which they should be read (regardless of publication date).

As per the author’s note for her readers (as found in “Black Magic Woman“)

“… let me try to clear things up now by telling you what the proper order of the Novels of the Others should be, in terms of chronological order of the events in the books:”

So without further ado, here it is:

  1. One Bite With A Stranger (used to be called “Fantasy Fix” in a past release)
  2. Big Bad Wolf (The Others) (used to be called “Fur Factor” in a past release)
  3. Prince Charming Doesn’t Live Here (The Others) (used to be called Faer Fetched - Danice and Mac’s novella – now reworked into this newly released longer book)
  4. Black Magic Woman (The Others) (Daphanie’s book – Danice’s sister)
  5. Not Your Ordinary Faerie Tale (The Others) (used to be called “Fighting Faer” – Corinne and Luc’s e-book in a past release)
  6. On the Prowl
  7. Drive Me Wild (The Others) Tess and Raphael’s story (used to be called “Fur For All” in a past release)
  8. Hungry Like a Wolf (Others) - expected release date June 25th 2013 (Logan and Honor’s re-release book –> used to be called Fur Play at Ellora’s Cave in a past release)
  9. Wolf at the Door
  10. She’s No Faerie Princess
  11. The Demon You Know
  12. Any Witch Way She Can (in No Rest for the Witches the anthology ) – this is a short story that fits here, in the series.
  13. Howl at the Moon
  14. Walk on the Wild Side
  15. You’re So Vein
  16. Born To Be Wild (The Others)

NOTE: For those still confused or concerned about this reading order guide, here is an email direct from the author of the series confirming it.

All sorts of YIPPEEEEEs for this lady… She is great..

The first Christine Warren book I read was ‘Big, Bad Wolf’ and ‘One Bite with A Stranger’ was the fourth. She is an awesome writer! All I can say is keep writing Ms. Warren and somebody please tell SMP to pick up the pace on those release dates! LOL

I just read One bite with a stranger, that’s was my first book, and right down I am writing the books list down to get the rest. I love it, I didnt stop until I finished, on one day……….I hope I can find ell the books.
Also your site is awesome……….

Chrystal November 14, 2010 at 1:06 PM

Is it me or does Black Magic Woman seem like it could be Tess & Rafe’s story Fur For All redone? After Prince Charming Doesn’t Live Here I’m pretty sure its possible.

Also, I have to say your site is great. Thanks for the correct reading list. I really hate when I read books out of sequence, it doesn’t feel right. I found that Christine Warren’s book order is the most confusing. Your site really helped me.

So thanks

So book 15 can really be read as book 3?

Maryse February 14, 2011 at 10:47 PM

Hi Catrina! Yup book#15 was originally her book# 3.

Back when she wrote it, it was published by another company (I don’t believe it is still available under the original version) and that is why it has just recently been re-released under the new title by her new publisher (and that is why it is now at the “bottom” of the list in terms of publishing dates).

But for “reading order” in terms of how she originally wrote all of the stories, it was her 3rd story in this series.

I hope that helps!

Tamara March 18, 2011 at 11:29 AM

I hate reading books out of sequence too Chrystal, that is why I have found this website so helpful because I was having the hardest time finding the order before now. There are tell-tell signs of the order in the books (you have to REALLY LOOK for them though), but it was still hard, so thanks a lot!!!

Nikki G March 28, 2011 at 4:37 PM

God i can get enough of Christine Warren’s books, i can’t wait to read “Black Magic Women”!!!!!

Heather May 6, 2011 at 3:30 PM

i finally found out how the publishing of the others series is working out. the tbd books from the beginning of the series she is working on. but she is doing a new book then an old book rewrite formation. black magic woman was a new book and the next one is one of the the rewrites of fighting faer i think. Not Your Ordinary Faerie comes out in nov. i have already seen it being advertized on amazon. which is so cool consider i hate reading things out of order too and really wish i could have all of the early books before i had read all the others. . sometimes i just so hate waiting ::laughing;: i can’t wait to see how the next book of BDB is going to be too. and her last one just came out last month.

Oh My Gosh this was hella helpful Thankyou!!~♥

Maryse August 20, 2011 at 11:10 AM

You’re welcome!!

Sandra September 25, 2011 at 4:07 PM

I really like this series. I am doing a re-read on the books this time trying to read them in order on what I have. Big Bad Wolf is one of my favorites.

I do recommend this author.

Happy reading everyone.

I am still lost. For example the ebook on Danica sotry was 34 pages and then today I find that there is a full novel. Is there a way to get an update reading order that includes the old and the new and which books are replacing the old.


Maryse October 3, 2011 at 8:18 AM

Hi Book Girl!

I received an email confirmation from the author herself that the list is exactly as it should be. In regards to your Danica question, Christine Warren answered:

“The reason why Faer Fetched went from 34 pages to a full novel is because St Martin’s Press wasn’t interested in publishing a short story; they wanted a novel. So when I rewrote it, it became novel length. It doens’t change the order of the chronology, and you have the correct titles old and new in the list you wrote.”

Jeanette Cameron February 16, 2012 at 2:28 PM

I am just getting wind of the series and so far I have read, ‘One Bite With A Stranger’ and ‘You’re So Vein’ … I don’t understand why at the end of ‘One Bite With A Stranger’ there is a sneak peek into the next book in the series ‘You’re So Vein’ and that is not even actually the next book. It’s very scattered and all over the place the sneak peek doesn’t even start with the beginning of ‘You’re So Vein’, It’s the second chapter of the book. I noticed this list was last updated in 2011 has there been any changes to the order since then, just double checking.. I hate reading books out of sequence…

Maryse February 16, 2012 at 2:43 PM

Hi Jeanette. Nothing has changed so far and this is the reading order, as per the author.

The “previews” at the end of a book don’t necessarily have anything to do with what is actually next in the series. Unfortunately these books have been published by different publishers at different times under different titles, and this is why there is confusion that the author had to explain and “fix” in her note regarding the reading order.

Jeanette Cameron February 24, 2012 at 12:53 AM

Is the entire series sold as a set somewhere by any chance?

Maryse February 27, 2012 at 3:48 PM

Jeanette. I don’t think so as they are still releasing books in-between other books in the series, and they are republishing older books under new titles etc.. (even though the story is the same inside).

Talena Ann March 22, 2012 at 8:08 PM

Do you know where Heart of the Sea fits in?

Imogen Louise March 26, 2012 at 1:58 PM


I’ve finished the series, are there any books in particular that you might recommend after reading these?

Also, thanks the reading order was really helpful.

Alison April 25, 2012 at 7:35 PM

Thank you for this list it’s really helpful as I’m reading on the prowl and trying to figure out why rafe de santos is single. :)

Bobbie jo June 15, 2012 at 2:48 PM

thanks, this came as i big help to me, my order was completely off and now i have a list of what i need to get to complete the series.

MandaLu August 30, 2012 at 11:46 AM

I cannot find a copy of fur play anywhere… does anyone know where I can get one?

Krystal November 28, 2012 at 5:35 PM

Hey, would you recommend reading this in order or can I just jump around ?

Michelle George December 28, 2012 at 3:03 PM

The first book I read for Miss Warren was actually THE DEMON YOU KNOW, my fiance thought it looked interesting lol. But I fell in love and got my sister and a few of her friends hooked and now she has a loyal following in Antigua of all places! We’re clambering for her latest releases and the reading order will really help the nubes. But what is a good series to start after her or even in the interim before releases?

katie February 23, 2013 at 3:42 PM

I love this web site! i hate reading books out of order and because of this site I no longer have to worry about it..thank you so much

daniel April 27, 2014 at 1:48 PM

Kahri January 7, 2015 at 10:09 PM

Damn, I am half way through reading Wolf at the Door and didn’t even know there were other books or that this was actually book #9!!
