Summary/Abstract: Nowadays, urban fantasy has become one of the most popular subgenres of fantasy. In contemporary urban fantasy, the city is a place where the real world and the supernatural interfere. Their coexistence catalyzes several struggles and only the female protagonist, who becomes an urban hunter, is able to overcome these urban problems. The complexity of relation between her and the city gives an opportunity to present typical urban issues of contemporary city dwellers. The aim of the present article is to reveal those two constitutive elements, the city and the female protagonist, as well as their role and importance in Cassandra O’Donnell’s French series Rebecca Kean.
