Magic to the Bone - Devon Monk I'm so happy to have found another decent urban fantasy author. This follows the urban fantasy formula relatively faithfully (tough-as-nails heroine with newfound superpowers, mysterious and irresistibly attractive man, dark forces determined to silence heroine, etc.), but the magic system is a little different from the norm, there are no sexy vampires (or any vampires), and it's well-written and witty. Is it great, life-changing literature? No. But it's a lot of fun.
