    If you're looking for an adult (i.e. Buffy and Kristen have no place in this story) urban fantasy novel (trilogy, so far):

    I just finished reading all three books. Loved them and they were super cheap on my Kindle!

    Hmm. Will try. Neil Gaiman is still my go-to author for non-angsty teen fantasy books in an urban setting.

    try and find these in a library; they generally sell for "free"; 99 cents; and maybe $2.99 for all three. Laube is a relatively new author and hit it with some good ideas, and an interesting character in Miller.

    it has similarities in the kind of fantasy, although Butcher is currently the grand master of this type of fiction. If you like Harry Dresden, you should try Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid series; it's is being called the successor to The Dresden Files.
