By following so much independent and standalone fantasy, I think I tend to neglect a lot of fantasy series — especially urban fantasy. But much of the most popular fantasy being published today is in the form of exciting and fast paced urban fantasy series. Like Lilith Saintcrow’s Gallow & Ragged dark fantasy trilogy, which Patricia Briggs calls “A true faery story, creepy and heroic by turns… I could not put it down.”
All three volumes in the series have appeared in the last sixteen months — a pretty fast paced publishing schedule, too. The books are:
Trailer Park Fae (352 pages, $14.99 trade paperback/$7.99 digital, June 23, 2015)
Roadside Magic (368 pages, $14.99 trade paperback/$7.99 digital, January 26, 2016)
Wasteland King (352 pages, $15.99 trade paperback/$9.99 digital, July 26, 2016)
This is an intriguing series that’s been getting a lot of attention. Publishers Weekly called the opening volume “far darker and lovelier than the title suggests.” If you enjoy adventure fantasy, it could be well worth checking out. Click on any of the images for bigger versions.
