Engaging Mature Urban Fantasy

Let me be blunt about this: Not all movies are made to be cinematic masterpieces, not all paintings are meant to spearhead a new school of art, and not all books should be judged against literary classics. Red-Headed Stepchild is, however, quite good at what it does: Providing adult readers with well-paced, intriguing urban fantasy with elements of action, mystery, and realistically developing romance, as opposed to many of the more flash, bang, pop sort of works you may see in the teen fiction section or from urban fantasy Harlequin-esque authors such as Laurell K. Hamilton. Although I admittedly found myself feelings as though the occasional time-skip had occurred in the development of a relationship, or the softening of a character, much of it was small enough to be filled in without too much difficulty by the reader's own functioning gray matter and, for an author who was unknown to me initially, I was very pleasantly surprised with the likability yet vulnerability of the lead protagonist, the lovable quirks and surprising strengths of various characters, and the painting of the author's own unique vision of supernatural beings in the modern world, (or at least, the modern world as it may exist in a parallel universe). All in all, this was well worth the read.
