Urban Fantasy is a sub-genre of Fantasy. It has a lot of the same elements like magic, creatures, etc., but it’s set in our world. The location would be recognizable, but the details are changed. Usually, there’s a whole history of what changed our world to be like it is in the book. For example, if vampires come through a rift between here an another dimension & take over society, government, businesses, law enforcement, housing, etc. would all have to change. Or, in some urban fantasy, there’s a society humans aren’t aware of that co-exists with our own.
