Category Archives: Contemporary Fantasy

This sub-genre is also known as modern-day or indigenous fantasy. These terms are used to describe stories set in the “real world” (often referred to as consensus reality) in contemporary times, in which, it is revealed, magic and magical creatures secretly exist, either living in the interstices of our world or leaking over from alternate worlds. It thus has much in common with, and sometimes overlaps with, the “secret history,” a work of fantasy in which the magic could not remain secret does not fit into this sub-genre. Occasionally certain contemporary fantasy novels will also make reference to pop culture. J.K. Rowling’s works are good examples, with their backdrop setting of modern-day England.

Isaac Childs has the perfect life—until that life comes crashing down when his wife Ramie vanishes.

Isaac learns that his wife’s disappearance is the ninth in a string of similar cases. In the wake of this news, he struggles to cope, to be a good father to his daughter and college-bound son, and to reclaim something of an ordinary life even as he conceals his troubled past.

After the FBI makes an arrest, and his wife is presumed dead, Isaac begins to move on. Yet will his secrets catch up with him? Has he conquered his vices for good? And what of the FBI’s theory that the case isn’t completely resolved, after all?

READERS SPEAK

When will the world end? We all wonder this at some point in our lives. For
me, it was sooner than I expected. Now I’m in hiding with Markus Kelly, a
man I just met, against an enemy that claims they were here first and we’re
the trespassers.

dream’ar, not a dreamer, and my dreams have the power to unfold in waking
reality. But the last thing I want is to close my eyes at night, and I’m dreadfully
tired of hiding. I want to give up but Markus won’t let me. I want my life back.
I want my loved ones back but fate wants me more, one last time. Continue reading The Afterwards (The Rosewood Series Book 1) by N. Heinz
