Re: Urban Fantasy: Vampire and Witches and Weres, oh my!

The Dresden Files books are personal favorites of mine.

Jim Butcher has a talent for good storytelling that so far has never failed to satisfy.

I took a mini vacation from work to read Cold Days and I'm already dying to read the next one. Book 15 aka Skin Game (or Bag Man) involves a Heist and since it's a multiple of 5, Nicodemus and the Denarians should be showing up on schedule.

Can't wait!

Only other Modern Fantasy tales I've read thus far are the Quincey Morris and Libby Chastain Occult Investigators series by Justin Gustainis.

Black Magic Woman
Evil Ways
Sympathy For The Devil
Playing With Fire
Midnight at the Oasis (TBA)

At one point, Morris & Chastain pass through Chicago and end up at McAnally's... Once I knew that I had to read them. lol.
