If you're recommending paranormal series to others, what are the must read series on your list and why?

Katie McAlister's Aisling Grey series because it's funny.

Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series.  It's they best I ever read.  It's mystery, humor and supernatural all in one.

Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series and her Harper Connolly (sp?) series.

Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series.  It's great for the first 8 books.  She lost me after that though.

I have so many lol I will make a list tonight, I've been meaning to anyways.

I want to agree with Kristen about Jim Butcher and Charlaine Harris. Butcher is a god to me, he is maybe my fav author ever. I cannot get enough of Harry Dresden. I think if he ever stops writing that series I will go into a depression lol

I agree with the Dresden Files recommendation and would add all of Tanya Huff's paranormal books...the Blood series, the smoke series, and the Keeper's Chronicles (Plus her science fiction Confederation series).

I haven't read enough else to say.  I like the Weather Warden and Anita Blake series so far, but I can't say they're "must reads" just yet.

I'd add Rob Thurman.  I really like the brothers' relationship.  So wonderful among all the romances.

Ditto to Ashleys and I"d add Kelley Armstrong, Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews and Jennifer Rardin...I have a few others but I've got to stop some where.
