I asked in Paranormal, and I'm asking here

I strongly recommended The Rook by Daniel O'Malley to a friend of mine.  She loved it and would like to read more like it that are NOT series books.  She also loves Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden, and Patrick Ruthfuss' King Killer series, but having been thru the waiting with Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time books, is not as interested in series so much as books written as stand alones, even is it does turn into a series. (The Rook was written as a kind of stand alone, but like a mystery can have additional books with the same characters, just not an ongoing story arc.)

So I have Gentleman Bastards by Scott Lynch, the Kin series by David Hulick, Alex Verus by Benedict Jacka, Charley Davidson by Darynda Jones, and a few others, but since several are 'in progress' she refuses to start and wants stand alones.

By the way, I also suggested the The Paradox series by Rachel Bach.  I haven't finished it yet myself, but liked everything so far.

Man, could I use some suggestions here.
