Series that are Forever Incomplete

We all know of at least one of these. A publishing company goes down in flames, or an author can't/won't/doesn't want to write in the series anymore. And it's incredibly frustrating for readers.

So here are some of the series that I love and will probably never get the happy ending they deserve.

There’s something about the new guy at Crossroads High…

Most sixteen-year-olds have friends. Aden Stone has four human souls living inside him:

One can time travel.
One can raise the dead.
One can possess another human.
One can tell the future.

Everyone thinks he’s crazy, which is why he’s spent his entire life shuffled between mental institutions and juvie. All of that is about to change, however. For months Aden has been having visions of a beautiful girl—a girl who carries centuries-old secrets. A girl who will either save him or destroy him.

Together they’ll enter a dark world of intrigue and danger... but not everyone will come out alive.

My Thoughts

I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, sure the third was a little too weird, but that hasn't stopped me from wanting a fourth book. Unfortunately, sales didn't go over too well for Twisted. Gena has no plans to self-publish a fourth book, or to revisit the world any time soon.

Vampires, werewolves, witches, shapeshifters -- they live among us without our knowledge. Night World is their secret society, a secret society with very strict rules. And falling in love breaks all the laws of the Night World.

In Secret Vampire, Poppy thought the summer would last forever. Then she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Now Poppy's only hope for survival is James, her friend and secret love. A vampire in the Night World, James can make Poppy immortal. But first they both must risk everything to go against the laws of Night World.

Fugitives from Night World, three vampire sisters leave their isolated home to live among humans in Daughters of Darkness. Their brother, Ash, is sent to bring the girls back, but he falls in love with their beautiful friend.

Two witch cousins fight over their high school crush. It's a battle between black magic and white magic in Spellbinder.

My Thoughts

This unfinished series has been making me mad for years. I feel terrible for the people who read these books almost 20 years ago, and who still haven’t gotten the conclusion to the series. L.J. Smith really needs to get it together.

Fifteen-year-old Izzy Brannick was trained to fight monsters. For centuries, her family has hunted magical creatures. But when Izzy’s older sister vanishes without a trace while on a job, Izzy's mom decides they need to take a break.

Izzy and her mom move to a new town, but they soon discover it’s not as normal as it appears. A series of hauntings has been plaguing the local high school, and Izzy is determined to prove her worth and investigate. But assuming the guise of an average teenager is easier said than done. For a tough girl who's always been on her own, it’s strange to suddenly make friends and maybe even have a crush.

Can Izzy trust her new friends to help find the secret behind the hauntings before more people get hurt?

Rachel Hawkins' delightful spin-off brings the same wit and charm as the
New York Times best-selling Hex Hall series. Get ready for more magic, mystery and romance!

My Thoughts

The Hex Hall spin-off series didn’t do too hot. But, just because it sold fewer copies than the best-selling originals doesn’t mean avid fans and readers should have to suffer. This book left a lot of plot holes open, and I want them solved. I just don’t think it’s ever going to happen.


There you have it, some of my most aggravating series with their non-endings. If you have any of these types of books out there, make sure to sound off in the comments.
