Jane Fancher’s Blood Red Moon is a lovely book with more than a nod to Stoker’s Dracula. It is available for the Kindle on Amazon or on the website store here. It’s self pubbed, but don’t worry — Fancher is a professional with a number of books from the NY publishers and her editor is C J Cherryh. It’s a lot of fun and her prose is like chocolate.
Robin McKinley is no stranger to fantasy readers anywhere, but just in case hard-core urban fantasy fans missed a terrific urban fantasy from one of my favorites — McKinley’s World Fantasy Award winning Sunshine is lovely. And be careful, lest you be struck with the urge to make cinnamon rolls while reading it.
I also just finished Kalayna Price’s Grave Memory about grave witch Alex Craft. I really enjoyed her first two books in the series, but this is my favorite so far.
Thank you so much to Patricia Briggs for sharing some recommendations! I asked Patty to be a part of the feature because I love both her Mercy Thompson series and the Alpha and Omega spinoff books. Mercy is favorite for many readers. She is a coyote shifter who lives among wolves and other supernaturals. I, too, think Mercy is great, but I think I love the A&O books a little bit more. Mercy is a bit more Urban Fantasy, while the Alpha and Omega books are paranormal romances, centered on a werewolf couple –Charles and Anna. The two series intertwine and intersect. I would whole-heartedly recommend them both!
