The BIG News: New Urban Fantasy Series from E.J. Stevens

Ready for the BIG news?  I have a new urban fantasy series and it's coming 2012.  *Squeee!*

But E.J., what about the Spirit Guide series?  Are you done with YA?

Me?  Done with YA?  Never!  The Spirit Guide series will continue with Brush with Death (book 4) and The Pirate Curse (book 5) releasing in 2012.  The Calvin and Yuki Diaries, a Spirit Guide series supplemental novella, is also in the works.

Are you crazy?!  You're on tour for Legend of Witchtrot Road, releasing next month, and have 3 upcoming novels, 1 novella, and a blog to maintain?

Well, um, yes. LOL!

So tell us about this new urban fantasy series.

The Ivy Granger series will debut with Shadow Sight (cover and blurb below subject to change prior to publication).  Readers of the Spirit Guide series will recognize my penchant for bad puns and quirky characters, but this series is much darker than than my young adult books.

Ivy Granger's second-sight gives her the ability to see the fey for what they are--bloodthirsty creatures with an alien code of conduct and a lack of appreciation for human life (though some are connoisseurs of human flesh).  There are a few exceptions to the rule, Ivy's friend Hob hasn't tried to eat her...yet, but now Ivy has to make a choice.  Ivy must take sides in the upcoming battle, or watch the people of her city be devoured by something they can't even see.

So much for an easy day on the job...

Shadow Sight (Ivy Granger #1) by E.J. Stevens

Some things are best left unseen...

Ivy Granger's second-sight is finally giving her life purpose. Ivy and her best friend Jinx may not be raking in the dough, but their psychic detective agency pays the bills--most of the time. Their only worry is the boredom of a slow day and the occasional crazy client--until a demon walks through their door.

Demons are never a good sign...

A demon attorney representing the water fey? Stranger things have happened. And things are about to get very, very strange as a bloodthirsty nightmare hunts the city of Harborsmouth.

There's blood in the water...

Kelpies have a reputation for eating humans. Unfortunately, Kelpies are the clients. When an Unseelie Fey this evil stalks the waterways of your city, you have to make hard choices.

The lesser of two evils...

Coming 2012!

  1. Omg!! I love the cover!! I don't normal read much urban fantasy but this has really grabbed my attention plus with you writing it I know it will be awesome!! I can't wait.... Oh I'm so excited.

  2. Oh, EJ., sounds fantastic! I can't wait to read it.

  3. This is fabulous news, E.J.! Congratulations and I can't wait!

  4. Thank you!

    Jessilyn: I think that this series will be a good cross-over for YA paranormal fans. While there ARE bloodthirsty fey, I prefer to write fun characters that have intriguing, suspenseful adventures...without the extreme language, violence, and sexual content that is common in urban fantasy novels. So while Ivy Granger is a mature twenty-something and Yuki is a teen, there will be a similar quirky fun quality that will appeal to readers of my YA novels.
