New book releases in contemporary fantasy and paranormal


I want to give a shout out to a few authors who have released their latest novels in the last month or so.  These are the ones I know about and hope to read myself.  I highly recommend them if you haven’t checked them out already.  If you’ve got a book that came out recently (regardless of genre) and want to add it, feel free to do so in the comments.  For those who prefer books without the fantastical elements, I’ve also listed one at the end you might want to take a look at.

Deathtalker book coverFirst up is P.L. Blair with the third book in her Portal series, Deathtalker.  It is a fantasy detective novel that takes place in Corpus Christi, TX.  The otherworldly characters are mostly fae, but the main character is a female human.  This is a novel that could probably be read on its own, but I would recommend going back to the first, Shadow Path, if you are just discovering this series.  My review for that book can be found here.

Sleepy Willow's Loosed Soul book coverThe next novel I would like to mention is Sleepy Willow’s Loosed Soul.  This is a great one for vampire fans, especially if you like a little eroticism with your story.  The main character is a vampire who has narcolepsy.  This can be quite a lot of fun as she often falls asleep at the worst possible times.  If you haven’t checked this one out, I would definitely say to go back to the beginning, Sleepy Willow’s Bonded Soul.  There is a specific story arc stretched across the series, making it better to read them in order.  You can find my review for the first book here.

Demon Revealed book coverConnie Suttle released the second book in her High Demon series, Demon Revealed.  I’ve already read and loved it.  If you’re a fan of her work, you should check this one out.  If you haven’t read her books, I’d definitely recommend them for all paranormal fans.  My one warning is you want to start at the beginning for any of her three series as the plots are intricitely woven together and difficult to follow otherwise.  Demon Lost is the place to start if you want to move on to this book.

December Releases!

The Adonis book cover

Charity Parkerson just released a new novelette , The Adonis.  I’ll be giving further information about it when I host a spot on Charity’s blog tour set for December 5th.  One thing I do want to say, though, is this book is based on a short story she wrote and won on one of my monthly writing contests.  You can see it here.  Warning, this is an erotic fantasy!

Breaking the Nexus book coverLindsay Avalon will be releasing her contemporary fantasy novel on December 12th.  I had the privilege of reading the first few chapters in its draft form and look forward to seeing the finalized copy.  This is a romantic story with a unique world set parallel to our own.  Further details, including the book summary, can be found here.

Contemporary!

Precise book coverLast, but certainly not least, is a contemporary novella  just published by Rebecca Berto.  It is titled, Precise.  If you’re into dark literary novels with thought-provoking premises, this might be the one for you.  The theme focuses on abuse.  More information on the story can be found here.

  1. Thank you 😀

  2. Nice list there! Charity, I love that you turned a short story into a longer work to publish! Good luck to everyone!

  3. My newest novella (66K words) was released last month.TROLL is a prehistorical fiction/fantasy work that has been called “a unique achievement”.

    At what point did humanity learn to fear each other? To hate? Paleo-Anthropologist Arial Connor thinks she knows. She just can’t prove it yet, but her newest find, high in a Norwegian Valley may give her the proof she needs. Those scary stories we’ve told our children to keep them from roaming too far outside the gleam of the porch light may have come from real incidents, many, many years ago. While Dr. Connor’s excavation continues, the story of what happened is slowly revealed. Two clans are converging on the remaining game lands. One will have to leave their homes, one will tell stories and sing songs of their own bravery. One people will disappear while another will bring their history into the modern world. One way of life will be lost, but does the better way endure? What have we learned from the ancients that would have been better forgotten?

  4. I just released Horror Bent on the 26th, which is a horror anthology. Covers a gamut of subjects including demon possession, alien abduction and a number of other things.
