So, I come to find myself in possession of a copy of Jim Butcher’s Turn Coat, the latest Dresden Files novel. Butcher is a big favorite of many Jaders, and while I do mean to try the series eventually, I don’t think the eleventh book is the best place to start. So instead: Giveaway!
As for that question… Well, I’ve decided, in the interest of fairness, that I should probably try at least one of those wildly popular urban fantasy books that have been spreading through the genre like wildfire. The problem is that aside from Butcher and Laurel K. Hamilton (been there, done that, not impressed) I really don’t have a clue as to where to start. So… I’m asking you guys to rec me some. Who’s your favorite novel-bound demon-slayer/werewolf-hunter/vampire-screwer? I eagerly (gulp) await your input. Convince me!

If we get a lot of comments… I will read and review Twilight. Seriously.
What I have read and enjoyed: Dean’s Tam Lin, Bull’s War for the Oaks, and Windling’s The Wood Wife. I seem to be incapable of getting into de Lint. Not exactly the leather-butt ladies crowding today’s shelves, though I did make it through two of Lackey’s Tregarde books with a shrug.
ETA: If you haven’t read any other urban fantasy, then give me one reason to start reading the Dresden Files ASAP.
