Overlooked January Urban Fantasy Release

A USA Today article caught my eye talking about the upcoming release of Marcus Pelegrimas’ Blood Blade (Skinners, Book 1), the start of a new urban fantasy series. Here’s the shiny cover and a description. Also check out an interview with Marcus over at Popin’s Lair.

Blood Blade
(Jan 27, 2009)
Welcome to the nightmare . . .

There is a world you don't know about, inhabited by supernatural creatures of darkness—vampires, werewolves, and all manner of savage, impossible beasts that live for terror and slaughter and blood. They are all around us but you cannot see them, for knowledge of their presence—so close and so hungry—would surely drive any ordinary human insane.

But for centuries a special breed of hunter has kept the monsters at bay, preventing them from breaking through the increasingly fragile barriers protecting our mortal realm.

These guardians are called skinners.
But beware . . . for there are very few of them left.


  1. Sweet! This looks like something my husband would love. He's so picky. Thanks for posting this. I'd never have seen it otherwise. :)

  2. Hi JenB - any way that we can get guys reading more UF is a good thing. I hope to review the book here before the end of the month.

  3. My husband started out in "high" fantasy (what I call the boring stuff), but he's starting to prefer UF. This one looks very promising. I'm really looking forward to your review!

  4. Hi, SciFi Guy,

    How overlooked can it be if it's covered in USA Today? I should be so overlooked!

  5. LOL Marta. When you put it that way of course... but it was flying under the radar for us peons in the urban fantasy blogging trenches.


For bloggers comments are like water to a man (or woman) wandering in the desert. A precious commodity. I love to hear from everyone and do my best to respond to every post.
