hi all,
I was looking on here a while ago for a new fantasy book as I couldn't find anything interesting

anyway, I saw a recommendation for Harry Dresden, I have to admit I loved it, but now I have finished the whole series I need something else

any suggestions?

Have you looked at Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid Chronicles? He's not Harry Dresden...but then who can be. Atticus O'Sullivan is a great lead character though, and his Irish Wolfhound Oberon is almost as awesome as Mouse :) Well worth a look. The first book is Hounded.

Totally agree-Oberon is fantastic and Hounded is a great start to the series.

Also worth having a look at Benedict Jacka's novels which are often compared to the Harry Dresden novels.

Started the iron druid, its a little tough going but first books in a series are often like that's especially after a good series.

Though it is certainly building up to something good

If you love Harry Dresden I would suggest D.D. Barant's Bloodhound Files & Rob Thurman's Cal Leandros series.

They are both excellent urban fantasy series in a similar vein to Jim Butcher's Dresden Files - they both have great characters, witty dialogue and plenty of action.

You might enjoy Simon R. Green also, his Nightside series of books are a little more out there but well worth a read.

Try The nightside series by Simon R.Green, the main character is Harry Dresden meets John Constantine and Secret Histories by Simon R Green, first one is called The Man with the Golden Torc, James Bond with magic and super science.

plus, althrough alot different, try Codex Alera by Jim Butcher. To me it was as enjoyable as Dresden. It makes The Lord of the Rings seem small. Good characters, great story and best of all it is finished. the worst part of Dresden is waiting for the next one but Codex has 6 books. Plus the magic system in it is really well done.

I would have to agree with M.Lewis, Simon R Green is the business, Nightside and Secret Histories are class.

I like to recommend the 20 Palace novels by Harry Connolly....

The Jane Yellowrock novels are also pretty good (by Faith Hunter)

Regarding the Nightside series...anyone know why the Kindle version is only available in German? The German Amazon site offers it in English, but only offers the German translation.

No idea about the translation for Nightside, but heartily recommend it, it's a superb series.
