This new book won't be as dark as the trilogy that began with Wicked Ways (Dark Hearts), however it will be dark and kinky.
The current blurb is below. The title is now Nightmare Rising. This book has transformed so much since first conceived.
What is urban fantasy? Think the Karen Marie Moning Fever series. Nightmare Rising will be set in current day cities and towns, mostly in the USA. No vampires or werewolves are in this story, but there will be fantasy elements.
"Urban fantasy is a subgenre of fantasy defined by place; the fantastic narrative has an urban setting. Urban fantasy exists on one side of a spectrum, opposite high fantasy, which is set in an entirely fictitious world. Many urban fantasies are set in contemporary times and contain supernatural elements. However, the stories can take place in historical, modern, or futuristic periods. The prerequisite is that they must be primarily set in a city."
Though my Preyfinders trilogy was grounded in scifi, it had a lot in common with urban fantasy. If you haven't read that series, here's a link to try it out - it's on Kindle Unlimited currently and bundled into one big book of awesome darkness. I love my villain in that one, the Factory Queen. Very scifi yet she is also very Hitchcockian, with a lurking-under-the-stairs, sort of feel. And the women the stories feature get to kick her ass big-time - which is where the story evolves toward urban fantasy .
Preyfinders Trilogy on Amazon
He holds destruction in his right hand ...
One, unlucky day, Wes becomes both victim and predator. She's filled with the shattered self and memories of the Cucitrice - a centuries-old woman with an uncomfortable familiarity with nightmares and demon-stitching.
Wrong place, right time...but now she has the powers to settle the score with a serial killer who stole her childhood.
Val, who joins her hunt, may not be who he seems. A lover with a taste for fear as foreplay is not a man a girl should ever want.
There's a swarm of bad things coming. Her childhood nemesis may be just the first, but what if the worst of them is already at her throat?
She hears the thud of his feet on floorboards and his knee is on her bed, bowing it down.
