Whether one calls them urban thrillers, paranormal romances or Buffy/Lara - inspired spin-offs, there's no denying that the market is flooded with a certain type of novel. Regular visitors to this column will know that I tend to call them "supernatural thrillers with a kick-ass female protagonist" - hardly a good marketing sound-bite, but it does cover what we're talking about here. Suffice it to say, I am not exactly the target audience for these kinds of books, but were I a publisher, I'd sure want to make sure I was offering something in this line to the marketplace.
Kim Harrison's "Rachel Morgan" books are HarperCollins Voyager's crack at this whip and Where Demons Dare is the latest (and sixth) title in the series to be published here in the UK. I have feeling, a strong feeling that there may be more to follow.
