Who Are Your Most-Loved Paranormal and Urban Fantasy Characters?

Who Are Your Most-Loved Paranormal and Urban Fantasy Characters? Earlier this week Book Riot ran a post featuring the 20 most-loved literary characters. It was a fun post and I certainly saw a few of my favorites there, but as I went to go and share the link via VBC’s Facebook page I stopped myself.

Love Letter to Vlad (Jeaniene Frost’s Night Prince series) I’ve been a long-time fan of Jeaniene Frost’s books. I’ve been a fan of Bones since before Chapter 32. Then there was Vlad. I wasn’t smitten with him until Once Burned hit shelves last year, then I understood why he earned a spinoff series.

I appreciate the logic authors put into the rules within their books....
