Welcome to this week’s edition of Friday Book Round-Up. Urban Fantasy is one of my favorite genres. I love the supernatural element along with kick-ass action. I’m always looking for new authors to binge-read. Since it’s Freebie Friday, I thought it would be fun to share some of the great urban fantasy titles I’ve picked up from Prolific Works this week.
Bad Soul (The Uncanny Ink Series Book 1)
Unscrupulous and lethal, Erin Banks has everything she needs to be an assassin in a world full of mobsters, monsters, and magic. She wasn’t born with powers, but thanks to her Uncanny Ink—arcane tattoos that transform her body into a magic-fuelled killing machine—she’s more than a match for anyone dumb enough to stand between her and getting paid. Fresh out of prison, Erin wastes no time getting back to what she does best: running down wanted men and claiming their bounties. But when a powerful demon lurking in a black cathedral hires her to round up an errant soul, the creature offers a reward far more valuable than money… He offers Erin the key to unlocking her tragic past. The key to the mystery surrounding her long-lost brother.
Underground Magic (London Coven Book 0)
Join London's guardian, Stella Familiar, on her first job, sixty years ago. Underground Magic is a short prequel to the London Coven series.
Tough Luck - Saga of the Shamrock Samurai - Folktale 1

In the meantime I’m juggling homework, a possible girlfriend, a screaming Banshee, and a black wizard.

Ghost Hunters Part One
It started with a dream. In it, John Earl Stark solved the problem of a ghost he met. Or did he? It was a dream, after all. The next day he meets two women who visit his cabin, arriving out of the blue, literally. (Well, one arrived with pitched black darkness which filled his cabin and made her cough.) These two have an offer for Stark. All he really wanted was to enjoy the small cabin and solitude so he could write his detective stories. These ladies had another offer - to help them solve the reasons ghosts don't move on. Plenty of new inspiration for stories, decent pay, won't interrupt his writing schedule. Of course, he could die doing it...
