These are my 2 favourite authors and I have also read Kim Harrison, Charlaine Harris etc etc. I really would like a strong female lead with supernatural overtones (werewolves are my fav) that are not just supernatural mills and boon and/or porn :) Can anyone help as I would really love something new and like this to get my teeth into? Oh yes sorry but I also prefer female authors if possible..... Thanks for any help on this, it is really much appreciated as an avid reader whose favourite pastime is escapism but has run out of new captivating material.... Vanessa
I would definitely recommend a series called Mageri by Dannika Dark Sterling (Mageri Series: Book 1). Also have you tried anything by Maria V. Snyder, she is brilliant Poison Study (The Chronicles of Ixia), the Study series are the beginning of two related series. These are proper fantasy, but are really good! Happy reading, let me know if you like them!
Not female authors (also my preference) but well worth a read are Benedict Jacka's Alex Verus novels and Jim Butcher's Dresden Files are brilliant; as unputdownable as Kelley Armstrong (who is possibly my favourite author) Also try Rachel Vincent's "Stray" series. But only if you don't have plans for a few days! ;o)
Ilona Andrews is a good bet... particularly Kate Daniels Darynda Jones ... Charlie Davidson Chloe Neill ... Chacagoland Vampires Patricia Vaughn ... Kitty Norville (Werewolves) Red by Kait Nolan Shanna Swendson Enchanted Inc Series Jeaniene Frost ... Night Huntress
and of course anything by Sir Terry Pratchett (just because everyone should read Discworld!)
