10 Addictive Urban Fantasy Books

Urban fantasy is no doubt one of the most fascinating genres in modern literature. For those who may not know what it is, you can head to this post for a great guide on what is urban fantasy — but, in a nutshell, it consists of fantasy plots that play out in modern settings, for a great mix of enchanting and accessible. Not to mention that it usually involves paranormal elements, particularly vampires, werewolves, and faeries. (Oh my!) Here are 10 highly addictive urban fantasy books to try — many of which are part of larger series, so you’ll be able to feed your addiction for many sequels to come. 

1. Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire

October “Toby” Daye is many things: half human, half faerie, San Francisco resident, and grocery store graveyard shifter. She only knows one thing for certain, and that is she’s left her faerie life behind. Or so she thinks. When her former fae friend Evening Winterrose is murdered, Toby finds herself magnetically (or magically) pulled back into her old life. And despite the countless miseries she’s suffered among them, Toby can’t resist another adventure — namely, the chance to find Evening’s killer and enact swift, savage vengeance. Read More.

2. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Cassandra Clare is another huge name in the urban fantasy game, and her novel City of Bones helped bring the genre into the twenty-first century mainstream. In this whirlwind tale, New York teenager Clary Fray discovers her identity as a Shadowhunter, a supernatural entity with the power to kill demons. When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary teams up with newfound accomplices to figure out who’s taken her and why. They learn shocking truths about the world of the Shadowhunters, truths that Jocelyn always intentionally kept from her daughter — not knowing that Clary would need that very knowledge in order to save her life. Luckily, our heroine is determined to find out as much as she can, and to fight with every ounce of her strength to keep herself and her loved ones safe. Read More.

3. Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

Moon Called has been hailed as one of the most innovative additions to urban fantasy in recent years. It stars Mercedes (Mercy) Thompson, a skilled mechanic and shapeshifter who lives among werewolves, vampires, and supernatural creatures of all sorts. But though their shared home of the “Tri-Cities” area may seem perfectly harmonious, trouble has long been simmering just under the surface. That trouble boils over when Mercy is approached for work by a desperate teenage werewolf, who reveals he’s just escaped his fate as a lab rat (or lab wolf, in this case). Mercy soon realizes that her new acquaintance is not an isolated incident, and must set out to rescue all the werewolves she knows before it’s too late. Read More.
