Spotlight on Urban Fantasy: Some of the best UF series!

Today I would like to share with you some of the best urban fantasy series I've read and which are some of my favourites.

The Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong

Dime Store Magic Industrial MagicHaunted

As I've already told you, Bitten was the 3rd paranormal/UF novel I have ever read and fell in love instantly not only with the fantastic world Kelley Armstrong has created but also with her brilliant writing style. To this day The Women of the Otherworld series is one of my favourite series, it has everything: interesting characters, exciting plot, fantastic sarcastic humour and brilliant writing style. I'm so happy this is such a long series and still going strong for long! :-) 

The series in order:

The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews

Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, Book 1)Magic Burns (Kate Daniels, Book 2)Magic Strikes (Kate Daniels, Book 3)Magic Bleeds (Kate Daniels, Book 4)

Another fantastic UF series, just like Kelley Armstrong's books, the Kate Daniels series has bitingly sarcastic bantering dialogues, a wonderful heroine and a swoonworthy hero, the chemistry between whom is smoldering!

The series in order:

The Disillusionists trilogy by Carolyn Crane

Mind Games (The Disillusionists Trilogy: Book 1)  Double Cross (The Disillusionists Trilogy: Book 2)
 Mind Games         Double Cross

Wow! Another series about which I can only speak in superlatives! The Disillusionists series is one of my favourite discoveries in 2010. Not only is the universe Carolyn Crane created incredibly original and innovative, each one of her characters is unique and interesting (and those who have read Mind Games know what I'm talking about when I simply say: Packard or Otto? Not an easy choice! :-p). A must read for any UF fans!

The series in order:

Anya Kalinczyk series by Laura Bickle

Embers   Sparks
Embers                  Sparks

Laura Bickle's evocative descriptions are extraordinary and the UF universe she built is very original (the heroine is no vampire, werewolf, fairy or angel, no she is a "lantern"). Anya's universe is darker than the usual and maybe because of that, the athmosphere is more intense and deeper. An amazing journey, and you just have to meet Sparky! ;-)
