This whole series is the best urban fantasy world I've ever read. Usually I can't see how tech and magic can smoothly coexist but this husband/wife authoring team really did it well. They also write an excellent blog that makes you feel close to them as a fan without being a stalker :)
Cover of the Year Nominee, Best Female Cover Nominee, Best Urban Fantasy Cover Nominee - Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews - Cover by Tony Mauro
This series is individual stories that are connected. Again strong well formed characters. There is a innate humour that comes through. This series is Bluegrass Paranormal, Yer I know that is not a true Genre but read the series then tell me what you call it.
