What is Urban Fantasy? – Part 1
Urban fantasy describes a work that is set primarily in the real world and contains aspects of fantasy. These matters may involve the arrivals of alien races, the discovery of earthbound mythological creatures, coexistence between humans and paranormal beings, conflicts between humans and malicious paranormals, and subsequent changes to city management. Many urban fantasy novels geared toward adults are told via a first-person narrative, and often feature mythological beings.
