You Know You’re an Urban Fantasy Fan When...

Against the Dawn by Amanda BonillaToday we're joined by author Amanda Bonilla, whose Against the Dawn is the fourth book in her Shaede Assassin series. The Shaede assassin in question, Darian, is partnered with, and works for, a very sexy Jinn named Ty. Plus there are all sorts of other fantastical creatures Darian meets and occasionally does battle with. Amanda wants to come clean about her addiction—urban fantasy. Thanks for joining us, Amanda!

I'm an urban fantasy junkie. If it's got supernatural elements, I'll read it or watch it on TV. I'll shell out big bucks to see it on the big screen. Give me a kick ass heroine, entertaining side-kicks, danger and mystery at every turn, plenty of hot sex scenes and I'm a happy girl. And if you can relate to anything on this list, you're definitely my people.

You Know You're an Urban Fantasy Fan When...

A story just isn't good if your heroine isn't giving a gut punch at least once:

Author Amanda Bonilla: You Sort of Look Like an Assassin

Blood Before Sunrise by Amanda BonillaToday we welcome a long-time friend of Heroes and Heartbreakers as well as a fantastic author. Amanda Bonilla’s Shaede Assassin series features Darian, who is the titular Shaede Assassin. The second book in Darian’s adventures is Blood Before Sunrise, which was just released. Thanks for joining us, Amanda!

Earlier on my blog tour, I talked about a guy I saw in a Walmart. He was well over six foot-five, he was wearing all black, with a long black trench coat and big, thick-soled combat boots. His head was shaved to show off the tattoo on the back of his head that read Mayhem in this crazy looking script. His ears were gauged and he walked around the store as though he didn’t notice all of the people doing double-takes as he passed. The guy looked like he’d stepped right out of an urban fantasy novel. And I think some people just look like they could be vampires, werewolves, or assassins. I don’t know what it is. They just give off a vibe.
