Looking for Urban Fantasy Recommendations

Ilona and Gordon shirt and Wildfire on Kindle

I’m a huge Ilona Andrews fangirl. I even have the shirt to prove it.πŸ˜‚ I’m looking for urban fantasy recommendations similar to their writing. I’ve already tried Patricia Briggs, Seanan McGuire, Nalini Singh, Eileen Wilks, Stacia Kane, Thea Harrison. But haven’t found any other series that I loved as much as the Hidden Legacy and Kate Daniels series, and the rest of Ilona and Gordon’s books.

I’ve already made this request on Twitter (see tweet below) and Litsy, and of course I had to ask for recs here on the blog too. Plus I can update this post with a list of the recs I receive so it would be easier to keep track of them.

Recommendations from Twitter:
Jenn Bennet’s Arcadia Bell
Lauren Dane’s Goddess with a Blade
Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld (tried her first Darkest Powers book but wasn’t a fan)

Recommendations from Litsy:
Deanna Raybourn’s Lady Julia (not urban fantasy but similar slow burn romance… tried the first two books and enjoyed them but didn’t feel compelled to continue)
Karen Marie Moning’s Fever
Grave Witch by Kalayna Price
The Shadow Reader by Sandy Williams
Blade Song by J.C. Daniels
Written in Red by Anne Bishop

I’ve already sent some samples on my Kindle, but I haven’t started reading any of the titles mentioned yet. Please feel free to suggest titles that you think I’d enjoy! πŸ˜€

  1. I will put in an ardent second to Anne Bishop’s The Others series which starts with Written in Red.

    It’s a standalone book but have you read War for the Oaks: A Novel by Emma Bull ?

  2. I love Lee Carroll’s Black Swan Rising trilogy and Lilith Saintcrow’s Dante Valentine series. Rachel Caine’s Weather Warden series might also suit you. Any maybe look into Keri Arthur, Ann Aguirre, Kim Harrison, Karen MacInerney, K.E. Wills and Chloe Neil. There’s also Nicole Peeler’s Jane True series but that’s a lot more on the light side of things.

  3. Ooh, I love your redesign!

    I have never read Ilona Andrews or much urban fantasy at all, so I really can’t speak to this. I liked War for the Oaks by Emma Bull and Borderline by Mishell Baker and that’s the full extent of my urban fantasy knowledge. :p
