I have suggestion for decent book series Kel Kade’s “ King of Dark Tidings” slightly over powered slight love interest and total chaotic neutral mindsetMarch 2, 2020 at 9:05 pm #29230Barbiel4prezParticipant
Dresden Files of course, however I’d also like to second the ‘Jane Yellowrock’ suggestion a few posts back. I’ve enjoyed that series as much as I have the Demon Accords, and Dresden File series. The protagonist is not quite as OP, and the cast of supporting characters is no where as deep as DA, but there is ass kicking and it has witches, vampires and werewolves oh my.March 2, 2020 at 10:02 pm #29232CReaper210Participant
Over the past months I’ve started many new books, so I figured I’ll return with some of my thoughts, recommendations, and even say thanks for some of the suggestions here.
Of some of the suggestions here, I’ve completely finished all of Cradle. I really enjoyed the series, although for some different reasons. It’s not urban fantasy and therefor lacks some of the government stuff and while the character gets incredibly powerful, it’s handled completely differently to this series in that, in comparison to his opponents, he’s almost always kind of weak. But with that said, I did always enjoy seeing just *how* he overcomes it.
Some books that I’ve started, but not finished are Iron Druid and Dresden Files. Iron Druid of which I wasn’t a huge fan of, feels a bit childish or not serious enough. Can’t put my finger on what it is exactly. Dresden Files is weak at first, but seems to get better and better as the series goes on. The main character isn’t necessarily crazy OP, but is clever, smart, and powerful enough to deal with every situation thrown at him. Different from Demon Accords, but close is many ways to where many of the elements of both series appeal to me.
A couple series I personally found and read that no one else mentioned…
Pax Arcana by Elliott James. Protagonist isn’t really OP, but is at least unique in the world, has many supernatural friends, and deals with some black ops government-like stuff(it’s a secret organization thing). Romance was a bit too forced for my tastes, but I was able to get past it.
The series I’ve found is most like Demon Accords is the Vesik Series by Eric Asher. Protagonist is fairly powerful, although not overly so as in Demon Accords. Tons of supernatural friends, way more supernatural stuff and creatures than in Demon Accords, tons of different abilities and powers being thrown around. And the government does eventually get involved in the supernatural world. Only negative for me would be a few books in a minor romance subplot begins and while it remains a smaller part, when stuff does happen, it’s front and center and sex is about as detailed as you can get without being porn. But besides that, its very enjoyable. I’m currently in the middle of the last Vesik book right now(I finished most of the series a while ago, but the newest book just released).
The next book/series I plan on reading is the Onset series by Glynn Stewart. From what I can tell, it’s basically, the world as it is today, but supwernatural creatures are integrated into society and especially law enforcement/military. Seems like it could have some of what Demon Accords does from later in the series.
Thank you for everyone who has commented 🙂

I would also suggest the Temple Verse books by Shayne Silvers. Starts with Obsidian Son. Lots of supernatural intrigue. He has a couple other “tandem” series that follow other MCs but those are also really good.May 6, 2020 at 3:42 pm #29329StuParticipant
Try the King Henry Tapes series from Richard Raley. Magical American 21st century Hogwarts, all sorts of were’s and the strangest/most left-field take on vampires you will ever read. The Foul mouth and the Fanged lady is Book 1. He swear’s like a trooper though, in case you need the smelling saltsMay 8, 2020 at 8:25 am #29331Cyril_SneerParticipant
Similar: Sandman Slim Series by Richard Kadrey, Alex Verus series by Benedict Jacka, Baba Yaga series by Deborah Blake. These ones are all pretty similar to Demon Accords. Urban fantasy, overpowered, etc.
OP MC but not urban fantasy: Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks, Sword of Truth series by Terry GoodkindMay 8, 2020 at 4:39 pm #29332DoctorChildParticipant
When should John announce the release date for Darkkin Queen?May 19, 2020 at 5:57 am #29349LocksleyParticipant
I really loved Magicians Brother. OP main character but nobody knows. At least in the beginning.October 28, 2021 at 6:13 am #29895RyanParticipant
Im surprised no one mentioned this but Demonata series by Darren Shan is the most similar to Demon accords by far.
Supernatural progtaganist like Chris and Declan. Werewolf progtaganist, ghost, demons, spells, supernatural warfare all in modern society.October 28, 2021 at 12:48 pm #29896biggin747Participant
I am familiar with Shan, but not that series. That series wasn’t ever made into audiobooks, so that’s probably why I haven’t heard of it. I really don’t have time to read like I used to so if it’s not an audiobook I rarely find them anymore. Thanks for the suggestions I’ll see if I can scare up the time to check out the first book the old fashioned way ?October 29, 2021 at 3:25 am #29897RyanParticipant
You should, it’s an amazing series, surprisingly underated. Considering i have already finish Dresden files and catching up on Demon accords, Demonata series is no slouch in comparison. Don’t be fooled by the tagging for young adults, it gets way darker and world ending even compared to Demon accords.February 6, 2022 at 3:21 pm #29997jstilsonParticipant
Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch is similar-kind of? Sans vampires and wolves. Supernatural, magic, etc. it’s entertaining for sure.
Dresden Files series.
