Beri O’Dell Books

Beri O’Dell UF Series

BeribannerEdit on 4/17/2016: This series has been temporarily put on hold. I know that upsets fans and I’m so sorry!  It didn’t pick up enough readers and the publisher is closing its doors. Right now, it’s the fate of several of my series and I do apologize. I’m working on other series that will hopefully be more popular so I can afford to finish my others. I love Beri so much and miss her and her friends, but sometimes, authors have to make hard choices. 

“DWELLER ON THE THRESHOLD is a pitch-perfect blend of witty dialog, horror, and action, with an intriguing hint of developing romance and an ending that will leave readers begging for more.”

–Jenna Black, author of the Nikki Glass series

“While reading Dweller on the Threshold, I often thought “what an interesting book!” The world, the characters and the idea all very fascinating. And quite different too. Rinda’s writing is so visual, it paints beautiful pictures. It is very easy to envision exactly what is going on and it really helps bring the story to life. Rinda’s voice is lovely.”

Dweller on the Treshold72lg


On a hunt to save her sister, the last thing Beri O’Dell needs is love. Aren’t demons bad enough?


Beri O’Dell is investigating paranormal creatures because she wants to know what she is.  Taller and stronger than most men, she astral projects and can peel through dimensional layers to see the creatures and spirits beyond.

She once helped her foster sister, Detective Elsa Remington, track down killers in Jacksonville, Florida, but stopped when a nasty fire elemental turned her strength against her. Now, she finds herself pulled back when something steals Elsa’s soul and puts her into a coma.

With little time to spare, Beri searches for the reason behind her sister’s coma. She has help in her spirit guides Fred and Phro, but others come along for the ride, including a pyro-nervous witch, and an androgynous necromancer.

The last thing Beri needs is to fall in love with a mysterious stranger. But the handsome Minoan warrior Nikolos knows what creature she’s after because he’s battled it before.

It’s bad.

Really, really bad.

He calls it the Dweller on the Threshold.


Contains a worried heroine with no time, a witch with fire problems, a pissed-off necromancer, a trapped goddess, and a damned sexy, but scary, warrior. Throw in bloody battles, mass-murderer history lessons and a bit of sexy time and you get the start of Beri’s new life.





From Fiktshun. “This sequel is even more awesome than the first book in the series. Darker. More exciting. More action-packed. Sexier.”


Saving the love of her life could mean letting her inner darkness out to play.


Beri O’Dell is on a mission. She has to rip back into a hell dimension fast, but needs two things first—the blood of an ancient and a fix for her friend Blythe’s magic, which careened out of control after the battle with the Dweller.

Finding ancient blood isn’t easy when the old ones are rare and unwilling to donate. She needs to find Blythe’s former mentor…except the woman has lost her mind and joined a traveling band of singing witches.

That’s not the only magical monkey on her back. Nikolos is imprisoned, and after a screwed-up spell lets her witness the horror that has become his life, her fear for him grows by the day. Now there’s another problem—a powerful being unleashed during the battle with the Dweller likes her gluttonous new existence, and will kill anyone who threatens it.

But Beri has a few tricks up her costumed sleeve, even if it means mining the darkness of her soul to set everything right…and get Nikolos back in her arms.

Warning: Sleazy ancients. Random fires. Nosy teenage hackers. Hints of off-screen torture. Battles with…Beri doesn’t know what. And one scary boyfriend who keeps inching toward insanity.
