Recent Paranormal Fiction

Paranormal fiction is a type of speculative fiction that explores themes and ideas that lie outside scientific explanations. The unexplained adds a splash to any genre and will appeal to fans of fantasy, horror, romance and so much more. Here are some examples of recently published paranormal fiction.

Getting Mama Out of Hell by Laurie Moore

"When British visitors Elle Winthrop and her daughter Elizabeth die near DFW Airport, they learn there's life after death, and that Elle's mother is living in eternal damnation. In order to redeem a Get Out of Hell Free card, they must return to Fort Worth and convince five people to do an extraordinarily good deed in Mama's name within thirty days." publisher

Season of the Dragonflies by Sarah Creech

"For generations, the Lenore women have manufactured a perfume unlike any other, and guarded the unique and mysterious ingredients. Their perfumery, hidden in the quiet rolling hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, creates one special elixir that secretly sells for millions of dollars to the world’s most powerful—movie stars, politicians, artists, and CEOs. The Lenore’s signature perfume is actually the key to their success. Willow, the coolly elegant Lenore family matriarch, is the brains behind the company. Her gorgeous, golden-haired daughter Mya is its heart. Like her foremothers, she can “read” scents and envision their power. Willow’s younger daughter, dark-haired, soulful Lucia, claims no magical touch, nor does she want any part of the family business. She left the mountains years ago to make her own way. But trouble is brewing." publisher

Under the Final Moon by Hannah Jayne

"Sophie Lawson may be a mere human with no special abilities except a strong immunity to magic. But the havoc she's wreaked on the supernaturals who come up against the Underworld Detection Agency have earned her plenty of enemies. Still, a girl can't freak out every time a horribly barbecued corpse is found with her business card in its hand. Or see a sudden glut of earthquakes, wildfires and three-headed dogs as just another day in California. But Alex Grace, her favorite fallen angel, is concerned--or saying he is to see more of her. Getting Sophie to see all the signs of the Apocalypse is an interesting way to heat things up." publisher

The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost

"In a world of shadows, anything is possible. Except escaping your fate. Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse--her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her."publisher

The Chandelier Ballroom by Elizabeth Lord

"On receipt of an unexpected inheritance, small-time crook Horace Butterfield splashes the cash on a large house in rural Essex, and sets about turning it into his dream home. Buying an enormous antique chandelier in order to enhance his brand-new ballroom, he is intrigued by the dealer’s story behind its provenance: a young woman who lost all her money in the Wall Street Crash and was forsaken by her lover is said to have hanged herself from it. For the next five years, Horace enjoys telling the story at every party he hosts. But tragedy is set to strike." publisher
