As an avid reader and a lover to the urban fantasy genre. I will share my top 5 books series that the rest of you U.F. fans would love to read as well. Some days, you just want to soak up some Vitamin D with a good book in your hands. Well, here are some good books for you all to read as you get your tan on and sip banana strawberry smoothies. (Sorry, I'm ccraving one of those right now.)

5. Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong
Darkest Powers is a young adult urban fantasy trilogy. It's set in the same universe as my Otherworld series, but with entirely new characters. The first book, The Summoning, came out in 2008 and the second, The Awakening in May 2009. There's a separate website for the trilogy, which you'll find at www.ChloeSaunders.com (Chloe is the narrator). You'll find some general information here, but a lot more there (more information, contests, bonus material, blog etc) For readers of my Otherworld series, I've answered some questions below.

4. A Maker's Song series by Adrian Phoenix
This series is a dark adult series. The series centers around Heather Wallace, an FBI agent, and her experiences with the dark, handsome and torture soul, Dante. The series is very well written and contains a very great blooming romance between Heather and Dante. I recommend EVERYBODY read this series for a different spin on dark angels, vampires, and so forth. Visit Adrian Phoenix's site here.
