Summer Reads for Urban Fantasy Lovers

cover imageWhen I think of summer, I think of quick, fun reads on the beach or at the cottage. If you're an Urban Fantasy lover, try these great series this summer!

The Jane True novels by Nicole Peeler: Yes, there are vampires and werewolves, but this time they're vying for the attention of a selkie in the midst of an emerging paranormal civil war.

The Calliope Reaper Jones novels by Amber Benson: If you're a Buffy fan, you've heard Amber Benson's name before. Amber is also a director and a writer, and she doesn't disappoint!  Calliope is Death's daughter trying to live a normal life, but when her destiny comes calling, Calie is thrust into the role of Death... she'd much rather be shopping.

The Otherworld series by Yasmine Galenorn is one of my favourite urban fantasy series to date. Don't read this one while using public transportation - people will look at you funny as you laugh your way through the nine books already published, with at least three more to come. The stories in these books rotate point of view from sister to sister which may throw some readers off, but each sister brings a unique perspective and abilities to their fight to save Earth from the Demon dimension.
