I'm watching the new season of True Blood, and I'm wondering how much weirder it can get. We've seen the vampires from day 1, of course, and the werebeasts have been around for a while, too. Now, there are glamouring fae and covens who want to raise dead birds and it's all a little ... strange.
Urban fantasy or vampire fiction, adding in these different creatures/monsters/occult figures is usually a good mix, and I think it's working for True Blood. Can you have too many of these in one story line? I don't know. I thought I'd ask you guys what you think about some of the books/movies/stories that mix many supernatural or fantasy features - and which ones are your favorites.
Some choices - of course, True Blood, based on Charlaine Harris's series of books.
We've got the Twilight series - tell me if it's worth seeing/reading.
What about Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake and Merry Gentry series? Any thoughts on her choice of characters?
Tell me what you think - is it too much, not enough, or are there others out there we should be watching/reading that are like those mentioned above!?
