So, reviving this thread because I found something really great I thought you'd all like. I've noticed that a lot of urban fantasy has 'strong female protagonists'. I say that in air quotes because most of the time they're horrible. Just whiny, sanctimonious, headstrong assholes. I've gotten to the point where I just don't pick up new UF books any more if they have a woman on the cover, because most of the time I'm in for brooding, treating friends and allies like crap, and still having them tear their own arm off to come to her rescue (and get chewed out for it)
Then I found World of the Lupi. This is honestly one of the best UF series I've ever read, and the characters are all thinking, logical people, without being emotionally dead sociopaths. It's 11 books long and all of them have been adapted by Graphic Audio, who do the best audiobooks I've ever heard.
How much I gotta shill myself for GA to get you guys to go buy it?
