So many people are writing supernatural books! So many! They’re also called paranormal (which makes me think of ghooosts). Urban fantasy, similarly, is the name given to fiction of a fantastical nature that is set in a real (specifically urban) world. Urban fantasy often has supernatural characters, and also often romance. Here are some selections from this genre.
