Antiheroes in Urban Fantasy

A Listmania! list by Alpha Reader "dee" (Australia)
The list author says: "If you're sick of sparkly vampires and schmaltzy werewolves, then this is the list for you!
These are ghouls and ghastlies as Gothicism intended - mean!"
Staked
1.  Staked by J. F. Lewis
The list author says:
  "Eric is a fantastic leading-man, but for all the wrong reasons. He is a jerk of epic, vampiric proportions – a cold-blooded killer, horrendous boyfriend and disturbingly self-aware while also unrepentant. He’s great"

Unholy Ghosts (Downside Ghosts)
4.  Unholy Ghosts (Downside Ghosts) by Stacia Kane
The list author says:
  "Kane’s protagonist is a drug-addled addict who is living drug by drug, day by day. Her romantic leads are thugs and muscle-men... and her home is the grimy ghetto of Downside. This Urban Fantasy is not always a comfortable read; but the darkness is part of the allure."

Spider's Bite (Elemental Assassin, Book 1)
7.  Spider's Bite (Elemental Assassin, Book 1) by Jennifer Estep
The list author says:
  "Gin Blacno is ‘The Spider’. She is an elemental assassin – a woman who can talk to and control rocks, and has a little ice magic. She’s good with knives, won’t kill kids or pets, and you won’t know you’re on her hit list until your artery is severed. The writing is deliciously dark. This is certainly a rougher Urban Fantasy than the genre is used to"

White Cat (The Curse Workers)
11.  White Cat (The Curse Workers) by Holly Black
The list author says:
  "The 'Curseworkers' series is intricate YA. Cassel Sharpe comes from a mob-worker family but is trying to find his way to redemption (with a few slip-ups along the way). Utterly brilliant and happily addictive."
