Blood Memories (Vampire Memories, #1)
Don't let the cover fool you, this isn't like other Urban Fantasys. The plot set up on the back cover serves more as a catalyst then anything, driving...more

Touch the Dark (Cassandra Palmer, #1)

Wolfsbane and Mistletoe
The list of authors read like a 'who's who' of the current Urban Fantasy scene, which is part of why I picked it up - because it contains stories from...more

Blood Engines (Marla Mason, #1)
A fast paced story, if not the fastest of reads. The plot twists are surprising, clever, and well set up. While not graphic, the language is frank, an...more

Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires, #1)

Blood Rites (The Dresden Files #6)
Another classic fast paced twists-and-turns plot from Butcher. There's nothing in it that will turn off established Dresden fans, but it's not a book...more

Magic Burns (Kate Daniels, #2)

Hounded (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #1)
A fun romp through a well balanced 'kitchen sink-style' Urban Fantasy world, it reminds me a lot of the early books in the Dresden Files series. The p...more

Bone Crossed (Mercy Thompson, #4)
Bone Crossed starts up immediately after Iron Touched, and ties in with Blood Bound, so it really can't be read out of order. My initial impression is...more

Unfallen Dead (Connor Grey, #3)

Death Most Definite (Death Works Trilogy #1)
This is a gut puncher of a book. It hits hard, fast, and right where it hurts the most. This book made me cry twice.

Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)
Poetic, poignant, and bittersweet.
