message 29: by Anna (last edited Mar 22, 2013 04:55PM) (new)

Anna | 31 comments Hang on a minute - that's not urban fantasy...
@ Jocelyn thats: ?/social realism/light fantasy
@Camille: social realism/?/dystopian

!! Urban fantasy is fantasy set in an urban setting (ie city/town) with a strong central female character who has supernatural powers of some kind. There is often an element of the paranormal in it eg magic/weres/vamps/demons etc. Romance is NOT the central theme so Twilight/and VA do not fit.

So...The Mortal Instruments Cassandra Clare is a good example in the YA genre or Skuldugerry Pleasant-Derek Landy. Most of the UF books I have read are adult.
