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

^ I've also read most of the series, and have three reasons why it could qualify as being at least MARGINALLY Urban Fantasy: the fact that it involves the supernatural, the fact that, according to the authors, it's often sorted in the Urban Fantasy sections of bookstores (although, as mentioned, they themselves don't consider it to be Urban Fantasy), and the fact that a lot of the action in several of the books takes place within cities and/or towns, which Wikipedia lists as being a criterion for categorizing something as being of the Urban Fantasy genre.
