Shadow Magic 
Macabre Academy Book 1 
by Sherry Soule 
Genre: Paranormal Mystery Romance 

Ghost summoning? No biggie. Raising the dead? Bring it on. Solving my sister’s sudden disappearance? A bit more complicated… 

I’m Serena LeStrange, a necromancer who prefers to hide her freakishly fabulous skills from others. Only my sister makes me feel less of a weirdo, so when she mysteriously vanishes from college, I enroll at Macabre Academy to start my own investigation. 

Except this is no ordinary school for the magically inclined, it’s home to all monsters—even the most dangerous ones. And after meeting an incredibly gorgeous vampire and a sinfully hot reaper, I find myself entangled in a passionate, yet forbidden, flirtation. To complicate matters, I get stuck with a ghostly genie sidekick and suspect a sinister sorority of misdeeds. 

But to solve the mystery, I’ll need all the help I can get. Someone at Macabre knows what happened to my sister, and I won’t stop until I dig up the truth. 

Unfortunately, some dark secrets prefer to stay buried. 

Do you enjoy not-so-cozy paranormal mysteries, slow burn romances, and unconventional heroines? 
Welcome to Macabre Academy, the first spellbinding book in a paranormal mystery romance trilogy! 
PG-13: *No F-bombs, sex (slow burn), or graphic violence, but there are steamy kisses. 
Heroine: A quirky supernatural Nancy Drew. 
Premise: An older university-age paranormal academy series with mystery and light humor. 

Popularity of Paranormal Romance
Today author, Sherry Soule has some exciting news to share with us! Her new paranormal romance mystery, SHADOW MAGIC, will be published on May 1, 2020. To celebrate the release of Sherry’s new series, the Macabre Academy, she has put together this guest post for fellow booklovers.
Paranormal Romance in both adult and YA novels is one of the most popular genres in fiction, but it may not be what you think it is. In standard publishing terminology, “paranormal romance” is a subgenre of romance. But most of these novels don’t focus mainly on the romance, and they include elements beyond the range of scientific explanation by blending together themes from the genres of traditional fantasy, science fiction, and even horror.
As a writer, using aspects of the paranormal in my storyline adds so many exciting possibilities to my stories. I love that extra element of danger and suspense.
And since I love all things supernatural, and I knew the market was flooded with vampires, fairies, angels, and werewolves, I decided to write a book with an unconventional heroine. She’s a sassy necromancer, who loves animals and wants to use her powers to resurrect pets and familiars.
Basically, the premise of the SHADOW MAGIC is a character-focused paranormal, with a slow burn romance, mystery, and light humor about a young woman learning to come to terms with who she is, and finally accepting what she is, while trying to solve the mystery of her sister’s disappearance. I hope you you’ll enjoy my unique brand of storytelling.
