All Karen Moning books are really good - I think better than most. Bloodfever being the best (and its not about vampires)

Karen Moning books are really good and very deep - Bloodfever is the first in the series of fever books (and they aren't about vampires)

Try The Other Slipper. The Other Slipper

Its a spin on the classic Cinderella story which has quite a but of magic and illusion thrown in. I have to admit I wrote it so you'll have to make up your mind about it (I'd only say good things about it) but the reviews on there are real so maybe go on that.

My Son has read a lot of the books you have read and enjoyed them, last year he had his own fantasy book published, it is on Amazon books and on Kindle(also for sale on all on-line book stores). It is called "The Golden Circle" by Christopher S Dodd, please take a look at it on Amazon. He has just finished the third book (second one was finished some time ago, and waiting for it to be published)

Just finished reading The Genesis (Blood of Ages #1). urban vampire fiction without there being girly romance and pathetic whiners. good blend of modern day and "otherworld" scenes.

I would really recommend The Wishing Eel and other Grim tales by Gill Macdonald. These contemporary fairy tales are fantastic read very enjoyable with just the right balance of fantasy and humor as well as being very gripping!

I read The Genesis on the kindle, its out in paperback now as well. vampire fiction, without being soppy. guns, fights, vampire mythology.

I'm currently reading Split Blood: The Ancient Codex - Part One (The Split Blood Series) and I got it for free yesterday.

Quite good so far and not a boring, dull damsel in distress in sight! lol

I also enjoyed The Dark Heroine: Dinner with a Vampire a few weeks back but it did dip in the middle of the book so hang with it b/use its a decent read.

Looking at your list you might like Barbara Hambly but avoid her Benjamin January series, I would particularly recommend her Sisters of the Raven books. Another author you might find very readable is Lilith Saintcrow - I wouldn't recommend her Watcher series but her Dante Valentine and Jill Kismet series are good, she has also done a series of YA novel under the name Lili St. Crow. I also vote for Patricia Briggs and recommend you have a look at her Siannim series - it doesn't matter which order you read them in apart from the two shapeshifter books. Ilona Andrews has also written some good books that seem to fit in with your requirements.

Sandrab- I completely agree with you on the Barbara Hambly books, I usually like hers but struggled with the Benjamin January Series. And Ilona Andrews books are really good (the Kate Daniels ones, I found the 'edge' series to be less involving.

I agree wholeheartedly with your recommendation for The Dresden files by Jim Butcher - I love this series of books. There is even a bit of romance thrown in its in no way soppy :)

Try The Night Light Chronicles: The Dark. It's not the most well written but it definatly has a story to it.

>>It's not the most well written<<

I hesitate to say it, but you're not wrong there.

Anita says:
But the cover is very funny, just loved it!!

Also loved the first sentence, I can't copy/paste it here and I'm definitely too lazy to type it by hand, but it is about three things: sound, alarm clock and time, and one of them (most likely, time) set to two o'clock. So add this to your quote and enjoy :)

In reply to an earlier post on 29 Dec 2012 18:01:36 GMT
Normally, when I set my alarm clock, I don't therefore need to open my eyes to check what the time is when it goes off. I sort of ... er ... know what time it must be?
