Must Have Urban Fantasy Audiobooks

I have been an audiobook advocate for quite some time now as I listen to the narration of a book while doing work or other tasks. If your into the Urban Fantasy / Paranormal genre, I have listed the best audiobook everyone should have on your portable media players.

1.) Dresden Files by Jim Butcher - I am a die hard fan of this series and the narration by actor James Marsters was likeicing to the cake. Marsters is superb on his vocal talents while narrating on most of the audiobooks (Marsters was not able to narrate for "Ghost Story). Aside from Marsters narrating, the story itself is great and I dare to say it's much better than Stephanie Meyer's Twilight or J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter (oh well I'm biased).

To date, the series has 13 audiobooks with the upcoming book entitled "Cold Days" coming in November.


2.) The Hollows / Rachel Morgan series by Kim Harrison - Here's another series that has a similar theme with Dresden Files. The protagonist is a witch/bounty hunter with a living vampire and a foul mouth pixie as business partners. They hunt paranormal criminals for bounties in an alternate universe version of Cincinnati. As with Dresden Files, this series has a good combination of action, some drama and a good dose of comedy/dark humor. The series was narrated by Marguerite Gavin who like Marster, was the best for this series.

To date, the series has 10 audiobooks with the upcoming book entitled "Ever After" coming in January 2013.


3.) Elemental Assassin series by Jennifer Estep - Elemental Assassin is another alternate universe urban fantasy series that you would like to listen to. It is story Gin Blanco was a mercenary elemental assassin who seeks revenge on her family's killer who she later learn that it was the city's most powerful elemental.

The series was narrated by Lauren Fortgang, another favorite narrator of mine because of her "southern accent" that best fits the storyline. To date, the series has seven audiobooks.


4.) Riley Jenson Guardian series by Keri Arthur - Riley Jenson Guardian series is based in Australia and the protagonist is a half vampire / half-werewolf who work as a "guardian" which is a paranormal equivalent of the FBI. She also has a powerful 1000 year old vampire for a lover and an 800 year old vampire for a boss. This series has a great combination of romance, paranormal action and some comedy.

The series was mostly narrated by Angela Dawe. To date, the series has nine audiobooks.
