Secrets in Our Cities: A Paranormal Urban Fantasy Anthology

Heather Hayden

The real world and imagination collide in this international collection of paranormal urban fantasies.

Some cities are inhabited by lycanthropes: a werewolf-turned-private-eye takes on a kidnapping case that upsets his plans for a simple life; a vegetarian werewolf must join forces with a local pack to save their city; and a twenty-something lycan thinks she's the scariest monster in town until she meets a necromancer.

Children are often the center of paranormal activity: a troop of Mountain Gals on a camping trip runs afoul of a witch; a high school outcast pairs up with an angel to guide ghosts to their final rests; a young fae intelligence agent is placed on his first undercover assignment at a high school; and a little girl rattles a zombie-run pub for supernatural clientele when she accidentally begins haunting it.

These young urbanites are more than they seem: a kindhearted girl changes her life forever when she offers shelter to an injured hellhound; a runty dragon dwells in the sewers plotting revenge while dreaming of reliable takeout; and an ordinary detective must team up with a young hotshot magician to solve a mysterious disappearance.

Step across the paranormal divide with these ten short stories, and you'll never look at your hometown the same way again.

Praise for this book

"What do a werewolf detective, a middle-aged zombie barkeep, a hellhound in need of a good home, and a dragon desperate for some decent cuisine have in common? They all haunt Secrets in Our Cities, the latest anthology from the Just-Us League. This collection of paranormal-themed short stories will have readers shifting (and sometimes lurching) across the realms, all in good, not-too-frightening fun." - Goodreads Reviewer

"This is a great anthology of spooky stories perfect for Halloween or anytime. Ten awesome writers have teamed up to produce this great selection of totally different tales with paranormal themes." - Amazon Reviewer
