Av | 29 comments Looking for books about the fae in which they live on our world, urban fantasy type books. Please no vampires, etc. just fae. I really liked the ones by Richelle Mead (Storm Queen books) and I like the bits of them that appear in Patricia Briggs's books. Also have read the ones by Laurell K. Hamilton. Thanks!

Elizabeth | 1 comments "Tithe" by Holly Black is the beginning of a modern fairytale series.

"Splintered" by AG Howard is a modern telling of Alice in Wonderland.

Both are towards the dark side of fantasy and of the fae world. Very cool!!

Av | 29 comments Tithe looks good. Thanks.

Scott Have you read Charles de Lint? He has several.


message 5: by Av (new)

Av | 29 comments No, I haven't, thanks.

Av | 29 comments Are you talking about The Ottawa and The Valley series? thanks


message 8: by Scott (new)

Scott I was thinking more of the Newford books, but most anything of his would qualify.

War for the Oaks is supposed to be good, though I admit I've not read it.

MJ | 1429 comments Have a look at 'the Lost Girl' series. I only saw the tv series which I really liked, but that was based on the fae in our world. h was a succubus who had no idea what she was until her powers kicked in, and later she stumbled into the 'fae world' around her and had to figure out how to work it. There's far & werewolves, but don't remember any vamps. There could be, but it's all (at least the tv series) based around the fae courts trying to entice her to a side.

Thanks, there are a lot of Newford books! I guess I should start with looking at number 1.

I remember this series. I don't know how to find it again. I'll check out and see if it's streaming somewhere. Thanks!

The Green Man is a great Fae legend. Thanks for the find.

The Fairy Godmother by Mercedes Lackey. The first in a trilogy, having to do with fairy godmothers in the current world.

Born to Run this is the first book in a series again. About elves who are hiding out and pretending to make cars--which are actually their Steeds.


The Reading Raccoon (readingraccoon) | 145 comments You might like these series:
Agent of Enchantment
Covert Fae

MJ | 1429 comments I'm almost certain that the Lost Girl series was based on a book series. But I was a couple of seasons in before I found out and never got around to the books.

Hi, I looked it up on Wikipedia and it didn't mention their being books connected. I appreciated your thinking about it. Thanks

Thanks, I'm looking for something a little different, but I want to check these out.

Shanna_redwind | 858 comments Year One has fey in it. About magic returning to the world.

Unshapely Things

Knife The Fairies may be a bit smaller than you're looking for, but this is a pretty good book

Legacies The Fae are in this series to a smaller extent, but the Wild Ride is involved, which makes it pretty cool.
