The Grimnoir Chronicles by Larry Correia
The Grimnoir Chronicles is an action packed urban fantasy series set in the Great Depression.  Certain people, known as Actives, possess a magical force referred to as Power.  Some can summon lightning or read minds, while others have mastery over fire.  War vet-turned-private eye Jake Sullivan can affect gravity.

When trying to arrest a violent Active, Jake gets dragged into a deep and vast conspiracy.  What starts as a straight forward job turns into something much more complicated.  A secret war is brewing.  The question is, which side will Jake choose?  Jump into a fast paced thrill ride, where the bullets fly and the magic flows, in Larry Coreia's The Grimnoire Chronicles!

This series is a great read for those looking for action, alternative historical fiction, and magic.  Correia's stories are a fun combination of twists and turns punctuated by plenty of adventure  You will easily identify with many of the characters, as the book is full of heroes you love and villains you love to hate. If hardboiled characters wielding magic is appealing to you, look no further.

If you like Correia's writing style, be sure to check out his other series, Monster Hunters. For other fun urban fantasy novels, be sure to read Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files.
