I have recently run out of books and am desperate for some suggestions!
I love:
Kim Harrison Hollows series
Kelley Armstrong Bitten etc.
Deborah Harkness A Discovery of Witches

I like some of the over abundant vampire/fallen angel/other supernatural teen books, but only if they're reasonably well written.

Thanks for any suggestions!

If you're interested in 'historical' fantasy, this Scottish epic might work for you:

The Blackgloom Bounty
The Regents of Rhum

Not sure if this will suit you but I'm a great Kelly Armstrong fan and I also like:
Patricia Briggs - Mercy Thompson books
Diana Rowland
L J Smith - not The Vampire Diaries series, the Night World series is much better although it's more Young Adult than Adult
Hope they're some good

Thanks, they all look good but I may have to save up a bit to buy them all! Maybe there will be a sale round christmas?

Chloe Neil - Merit Series - these are amazing I highly recommend them
Also as previously stated - Patricia Briggs - Mercy Thompson
and if you want a different twist on the whole vampire/ werewolf genre try Gail Carriger's - Parasol Protectorate series. You wont regret it!
Additionally if you cant wait till xmas to read these in paperback form/ need to save up, in the meantime you can find most of them on for free. All you need is internet access and adobe reader and you're sorted.
Have fun.

Try Keri Arthur books, very similar to Kelly Armstrong.

My new fantasy novel has just been published on Kindle. 'Brighton Sucks' is an Urban Fantasy with plenty of action, some tongue-in-cheek ideas on vampirism, and a healthy smattering of steamy sex. Only £1.71 as a kindle ebook

Some inexpensive books I've really enjoyed:
Linda Welch: Along Came A Demon/ The Demon Hunters/ Dead Demon Walking
Amanda Hocking: Hollowland (young adult but I enjoyed it)
Jon Rosenberg: The Unicorn Crisis
Lexi Revellian: Replica (odd but interesting)
Claire Farrell: Thirst
Mary Naylus: The Dresskeeper
Hope there's something there you like

You may want to try stray by Rachel Vincent it's book one out of five but they were really good. Every opportunity I get I always recommend Rob Thurman she's an excellent writer I love her Cal and Nico books. Happy reading.

I was going to suggest Ilona Andrews and Patricia Briggs, but I see that many have beaten me to the punch! You might like Magic to the Bone although I found them kind of depressing.

Dog Days (Ace Fantasy Book) by John Levitt was a very good book/series.

Oh wait, I thought of another one if you have a Kindle:

Straight to Hell (The Lilith Straight Series) A little cozier than Kim Harrison, but I think it's got some great tension and plotting. It does end on a cliffhanger.

Can I highly recmmend The Dawn Herald (The Three Worlds Saga) whilst the first novel is a bit light on romance, this is a highly original novel set in a fantastic magical world with strong female leads (the dawn herald, and her 12-year old daughter). A bit different, but you will love it! I did.

There's a new one out - the Broken and the Damned (The Legend of Silvermane) - It's only available in eBook until the paperback comes out in a couple of weeks, but it's a great read. Really recommend it.

Go onto Amazon Search, Books, above. Type in one of the authors you like and then click on a relevant book. Scroll about halfway down the page and you should see a horizontal listing of 'like' books. Some will be by the author, but there should be others.

Try lilith SaintCrow, Dante Valentine Series.

I'm giving this one a go: Grave Witch (Alex Craft Novels) Looks like it might be along the lines of what you're looking for!

author of: Under Witch Aura (Moon Shadow Series)

In addition to the Patricia Briggs books (which I really enjoyed) and the Ilona Andrews series (fantastic), I recently read first Grave on the Right (Darynda Jones) and loved that too. Also good are the Kristen Cashore books - I am indebted to the rather odd looking man who works in my local branch of Waterstones and recommended them, definitely worth a read.

How about the Frank Tuttle Markhat books? These are a little more...oh, I dunno. They're kind of like the Dresden Files, but a more compact plot and a bit more on the fantasy than urban fantasy side? Dead Man's Rain: The Markhat Files, book 2

At any rate, I enjoyed them. They are a little shorter than the average novel so be aware of that if it matter to you.
