Kim Harrison’s Every Which Way but Dead and Kelley Armstrong’s Stolen are tied for “First Adult Urban Fantasy” that I read (the tie is because I can’t remember & likely I read them days apart). They basically landed in my lap, and I devoured them like the delicious things they are.
Every Which Way but Dead is the third book in Kim Harrison’s Hollows series, but even reading it without the others, I was completely invested and in love. After finishing it, you can bet I ran right out to buy the first two books–which I also loved. This is urban fantasy with tons of suspense, danger, humor (always a plus), and incredible characters. I was envious of their friendships and I really really wanted to live here in this amazingly well-constructed world.
Has anybody else read these?
