Three of Your Worst Nightmares About Paranormal Urban Fantasy Come to Life

One great thing about Paranormal Urban Fantasy is that it’s fiction. Demons and other supernatural creatures are scary enough in books, but at least we don’t have to worry about them coming to life, right?

Just when you think it’s safe to turn the page, real life turns out once again to be much, much stranger than fiction!
