Bout of Books is a great way to interact with new bloggers so I thought it would be a fun chance for us each to introduce other bloggers to a genre we love. For this challenge, pick a book or a few books that you think would make a great introduction to your genre of choice.


After some thinking, the genre I decided to choose was Urban Fantasy

To fall in love with urban fantasy you have to read the "Mercy Thompson" series by Patricia Briggs. She's a kick-ass heroine - excuse my words. The books take place in a urban environment full of supernatural beings. Did I mention she can transform into a coyote? A kick-ass coyote. In my opinion, Mercy is the heroine of all the heroines. But there's another series of urban fantasy that may do the trick for youl: the five books of the "Fever" series by Karen Marie Moning. MacKayla Lane is too funny - you can't read five pages without laughing. She's your usual girly-girl that has to face the shadows of the city of Dublin after her sister is murdered. And, you also have the mysterious Jericho Barrons - the name Jericho Barron says everything! Oh, and if you like to listen to music while reading then you can find the official soundtrack for the "Fever" series: "Bloodrush" and "Shadowsong" by Neil Dover.
