Hello. I made a topic on here a while back when hunting for some new books of a specific type and got some great responses so I thought I would turn to the trusty Amazon forums once again.
I honestly haven't read a lot of the Urban Fantasy series out there. My first foray came from being handed a copy of Night Watch by the Russian author Sergei Lukyanenko. After completing the Watch series I got recommended something closer to home with Jim Butcher's Dresden Files.
I only got through the first book, though I do intend to return to the series one of these days, after which I started looking around at other series. What I came to notice is that the "ignorant human" aspect of strange species, and / or humans that can use magic, living in a world without being noticed by 99.99% of humans is a pillar of almost all of them.
When I started looking for books where witches, wolves and vampires (along with whatever else an author feels compel to throw in the mix) are not hidden from humans I found a previous list of almost endless titles narrowed down to fit on a bookshelf.
The two recommendations I looked into with serious interest were Kim Harrison and Charlaine Harris. I have read through Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series up to its current point, enjoying it for the most part, and watched enough of True Blood to decide not pursue the Sookie Stackhouse series.
I'm certain that there are other book series out there where witches, wolves and vampires (along with whatever else an author feels compel to throw in the mix) are not hidden from humans, but my searches aren't turning up much and asking around locally hasn't yielded anything except a couple of Paranormal Romances that seemed completely without plot.
If anyone has some recommendations of an Urban Fantasy series where the Fantasy elements don't have the cloud of it all having to be hidden from humans hanging over them I would really appreciate a post with the title or author's name.
