…enguin imprint). I have been very envious of my friends across the water at the amount of paranormal romance and urban fantasy they are exposed to. I can buy from Amazon but it’s so much nicer to be able to purchase books from UK publishers. Here’s what Berkley says: Berkley UK is Penguin’s new fiction imprint, specialising in publishing the best in urban fantasy and paranormal romance. The Berkley name has a history of publishing the…


…his world in terms of imagination. VERDICT: I am so disappointed as I only wanted positive reviews for TheMen of Urban Fantasy Eeek, but unfortunately this book just didn’t work for me. I honestly thought I would love it: urban fantasy, zombies, a mystery to solve, vampires – it sounded just like my kind of read, but I didn’t connect with the characters or their story.

AMAZING KINDLE DEALS Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance I have been perusing Amazon’s Kindle store again and found these amazing urban fantasy and paranormal romance deals, which I thought I would share.

Happy Hour of the Damned

…ut Amanda. Amanda is the reason I rushed out and bought book two! *I has me a ‘Manda crush ;)* Henry mixes urban fantasy with his obvious comedic talent as well as a smattering of visceral horror. Readers who read urban fantasy but not horror will find some scenes a little gruesome and gory (lots of braaaiinns and well, the rest of the body – waste not want not!). Personally I loved it, but I am a bit of a sicko Verdict Happy Hour o…

Over the top conflict where gargoyles can throw cabs several city blocks or crumble entire buildings to a pile of rubble is not only welcome, it’s practically required. But, as the sayin…

I can’t wait to read the rest of this fantastic serie…
