Urban Fantasy Series I Want To Read

I am starting to really love Urban Fantasy. Ever since I started the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher and the Alex Verus series by Benedict Jacka I have been on the lookout for more Urban Fantasy series to read. Especially ones that involve some kind of magical detective or vigilante. I really enjoy Urban Fantasy because they are typically the type of books that give you a break from the complex tomes that we as fantasy readers often indulge in. In this sub-genre, books are typically relatively short, are often thrill rides with great mysteries, and the action (in my limited experience) has been fantastic. Plus what I’ve read so far has just been a ton of fun with a wonderfully fast pace. So without further ado, here are 9 Urban Fantasy series that I want to read.

Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne

Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews

The Paternus Trilogy by Dyrk Ashton

Nightside Series by Simon R Green

Goodreads

Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs

Monster Hunter International series by Larry Correia

American Gods series by Neil Gaiman

An Unkindness of Magicians series by Kat Howard

I hope you were able to add some of these series to your ever growing TBR! Let me know if you have read any of these, if you added any, or have any to add in the comments!

  1. I’ve read the first book or two in a couple of these series, but haven’t finished the whole series. I’m not sure why I do that.
    American Gods is great!

      Haha I think because most of them each book can be treated as a standalone so there isn’t really a rush. Part of what I love about Urban Fantasy!

  2. Very solid list. Definitely added some to my TBR! I’m not sure if it qualifies as Urban Fantasy (though I think this is how I would describe it) but I recommend the Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman. 7 books are out so far and I am very liking the ones I’ve already read. 🙂

    I’ve read all of Mercy Thompson, Kate Daniels, Iron Druid and Rivers of London. Enjoyed them all, but they’re all so very different. I would add: Dreg City by Kelly Meding, Toby Daye by Seanan McGuire, Jane Yellowrock & Soulwood by Faith Hunter. I’ve also read all of the Dresden books and most of Jacka. Have fun!

  6. Paternus is on my list too! And I adore the Mercy Thompson series. I know how much you like audiobooks, and I do recommend the narrator for Mercy Thompson. That series got me through me a hellish long commute I used to have. Enjoy your reading!

      Yes Paternus got me interest solely through amazing reviews and amazing covers! Haha

      Oh thank you so much for the audiobook rec. I actually really enjoy listening to light read most of all via audiobooks and I consider Urban fantasy mostly light reading lol

        I can do them but they are not as fun haha. Better to soak in the tomes with physical reading:)
