Urban Fantasy is probably my favourite genre right now. I read so much of it and I absolutely love it.
But what IS Urban Fantasy?
Urban Fantasy is a sub-genre of contemporary fantasy, consisting of novels and stories with supernatural and/or magical elements set in contemporary, real-world, urban settings – as opposed to ‘traditional’ fantasy set in imaginary locations. Many urban fantasy novels are told via a first-person narrative, and feature supernatural beings such as vampires, shapeshifters, fairies, witches, sorcerers, and demons. Urban fantasy stories tend to have a high amount of suspense and action, and sometimes include mystery, romance, humor and/or horror in the plotline.
My favourite Urban Fantasy writers include Kelley Armstrong, Patricia Briggs, Cassandra Clare, Jim Butcher, Laurel K Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, LJ Smith and Stephenie Meyer. I really love stories involving magic, vampires and werewolves
