THE SHAMBLING GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy
his debut is a refreshing departure from the dark and sexy face of so much urban fantasy. Creative and funny, it explores a world where monsters (“coterie”) live amid humans. A sarcastic protagonist, well thought-out details and an authentic picture of New York City further bring the tale to life.
After her relationship ends, Zoë Norris returns to her hometown of New York to start over. She lands a publishing job creating a new line of travel guides. But her co-workers and audience are no ordinary readers — they’re monsters who secretly live among humans (a food source for many!). At first Zoë just wants to learn about them and do her job, but soon her past catches up with her and she must join forces with a motley group to save the city. (ORBIT, Jun., 368 pp., $15.00)
