I've been reading through this series, featuring Jane, a supe herself who works as a hunter of rogue vampires. It's set current-day, real world (mostly New Orleans and around Asheville) except that vamps and other supes are part of the population.

I thought these books started out great, but the more recent ones have gone over the top; just soo much weirdness it's hard to keep track of what's happening and who's doing what to who.

I've been meaning to check out that series. I just started reading Patricia Brigg's Alpha & Omega series. The theme seems to be werewolves (packs) operating under cover from the general public. The lead is an abused Omega wolf, she's like a non-agressive alpha that has a calming influence over others. They've introduced dark magic/witches but no other supernaturals so far. I've read the prequel and book 1.. starting 2 today. Not bad... I'm enjoying the read but not toally in love. I plan to check out her Mercy Thompson series as well. 

I can completely relate to "over the top" weirdness with one of my favorites, Laurell K. Hamilton. I loved her Anita Blake series. But it started dropping off for me the further in she got. The earlier books were great plots with mystery and danger. I loved the action and racey scenes. Later on it just seemed like she was focused on the smut aspect and Anita basically building a harem of various powerful supes. I lost interest and haven't read the last 3-4 books. I'll have to reread and see if she got back on track.

I enjoyed the first books of Jane Yellowrock, just stopped when the plot fell apart and she just road around on her motorcycle looking for a story.  I don't think I read any further than 60 pages and quit.  Hamilton just got too weird and really no in my estimation plot.
