Find your next Urban Fantasy read

A fantasy hero doesn’t have to be a starry-robed wizard, and a good magic system enchants as much in the big city as it does from a quasi-medieval fief. If you’ve always suspected that witches walk among us and dream of matching with a vampire on Tinder, we’ve got the perfect reads to help you see the hustle and bustle of modern life in a bewitching new light.

Our street-smart Reedsy Discovery reviewers have combed the shelves for the best new indie urban fantasy books. Get ready to enter a world at once familiar and strange, where the Fair Folk live in the fancy part of town, vampire detectives solve paranormal crimes, and werewolves lobby politicians for citizenship rights.

Don’t forget to give your favorite reviewers a “follow” so you don’t miss out on their urban fantasy recommendations. That way, you won’t have to wait to sink your teeth — or fangs — into all their latest picks. You just might discover the next True Blood.
