The Newest Best Books For Teens in Paranormal Fantasy


I love a good scare.

You too? Curling up with a good ol’ vampire romp, or some sort of mutated circus, anything that puts a paranormal spin on the familiar. Twilight woke a lot of us up to the splendor that YA paranormal fantasy could provide, and many of us haven’t gone back to the “normal world”. Here are some of the best new young adult paranormal fantasy novels on the market.

Emily has a paranormal ability to predict the deaths of other people through her drawings. After moving to a new high school, a senior with his own abilities needs help dealing with the supernatural Sarah. The three become connected in unexpected ways in this young adult paranormal fantasy novel.

What do readers say?

High school is hard especially when you mistakenly make the wrong enemies. Emily never meant to piss off the school queen bee but she does when she befriends a handsome lonely boy. She walks into a voodoo curse gone wrong and puts her life in danger by the girl who killed her mother. Awesome book with twist and turns you don’t see coming.Julia M. Nix, Amazon user.

“Quick read for the start of a fantasy series focused the coming storm of a battle of angels and demons (well, okay, Hallows & Nephilim, but what’s in a name?)
