ANANSI BOYS by Neil Gaiman. Not as dark as AMERICAN GODS was. More charming, although brief portions were fairly horrific. Still recommended, but I preferred AG.
NIGHT LOST by Lynn Viehl. The latest in her Darkyn series. Great focus on the romance -- if you're not squicked out by bugs -- and I love how she weaves the main plot into the arc of the series as a whole. Seamless. Highly recommended. Certainly paranormal with a gritty feel. Good for fans of urban fantasy who also like romance.
