I got a chance to ask Kristen some questions! See below for our quick interview! All Things Urban Fantasy: Why New Orleans? What made you decide to set the trilogy there? Kristen Painter: I love the city, love spending time there. I just needed a reason to visit more often and call it research. ATUF: Now that the Crescent City trilogy is finished, do you have any plans to continue to write books in the same world? Will we ever see Augustine and Harlow in future books? KP: I don’t have any plans to return to this world. I feel… Read more »

We recently received the following message in our inbox: Hello! I am new to the Urban Fantasy genre having been exposed to it via the Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch. I loved it! Can you recommend another series that is similar? I love the types of stories based in reality, but with the hint of fantasy. Full fledged fantasy can be a little much for me.

The least historical feeling of the Scandals With Bite series, BITE AT FIRST SIGHT has all the hallmarks of a good paranormal romance novel. It’s got some hot sexual tension, some good old hidden feelings of love, and some supernatural drama, as well.
Though the beginning is a bit rocky, THE EXILE is a fast-paced race of a book, full of twists and turns and a great new world to explore. From the great cover which sucked me in to the last chapter, I delighted in this book and am so thrilled it’s a new series I get to follow.
Following an author from one series to another, especially in the same genre, can sometimes be a bit of a risk. After all, it’s not the same characters that you already fell in love with, not the same world, and who knows? You may not like the new characters and world building, or they might be so similar you get the two confused. Luckily, JINN AND JUICE is a great start to a new series, original and fun, that really shows Peeler knows what she’s doing.
Though the Katherine “Kitty” Katt series is technically science fiction, it reads just like an urban fantasy novel. Just replace magic with technology and werewolves with aliens, while still keeping the same spunky female lead, and you’ve got TOUCHED BY AN ALIEN, the first book in the series.

Why the low rating for HER SECRET AGENT? Well, there just wasn’t enough story and what was there was either confusing because I didn’t remember much from HER LONE WOLF, or was just not compelling enough for me to be really invested in what was happening.
