Guest Author: Kasey MacKenzie (Guest Post & Giveaway)

Please join me in welcoming Kasey MacKenzie here today to Dark Faerie Tales.  The first book in her Shades of Fury series, Red Hot Fury, was recently released on June 29, 2010.  Red Hot Fury is also part of my Debut Urban Fantasy Reading Challenge.  You can read an excerpt here.

One lucky commenter has a chance to win an autographed copy of Red Hot Fury.  Details are listed at the end of the post.

So, why urban fantasy?

by Kasey MacKenzie

So, why urban fantasy?  What about this genre grabs so many of us by the throat and won’t let go—kinda like a werewolf playing with its prey?   For me, I think it comes down to the fact that urban fantasy is as close to modern-day mythology as it gets.  The Merriam Webster Dictionary online defines mythology first as “an allegorical narrative” and wow.  Does that shoe totally fit the genre of urban fantasy!

In my debut, Red Hot Fury, I blended mythology from many cultures—Greek, Egyptian, Celtic, and Hindu, just to name a few—with some unique twists of my own.  I adapted all of this for my own version of contemporary Boston, Massachusetts and let my characters loose on its city streets.  While I didn’t set out with a particular allegory in mind, you don’t have to read too far in the book to uncover one that wound its way throughout the book:  racism.

My main character, Marissa “Riss” Holloway, straddles the line between mortals and arcanes and is dedicated to fostering peace between the two groups.  Something that is not always easy to do in light of the negative history between them.  Most of the supernatural races tried to conquer the mortals when their magical realms started dying and, needless to say, humanity didn’t take too kindly to that idea.  Peace may have been reached, thanks to Furies like Riss, but interspecies discrimination is alive and well and my characters deal with its fallout on a daily basis.  Sound familiar?

Urban fantasy provides the opportunity to look at modern-day issues through a filter that takes away a lot of the pain associated with real societal ills.  Race issues between, for instance, black and white people in the United States may have come a long way over the past half century, but there is still quite a road left to travel.  I might not have set out to write a book that illustrates this point, but someone who hasn’t really thought about contemporary race issues may read about the relations between arcanes and mortals and see parallels between their situation and groups in the real world.

Which, when it comes down to it, is how a lot of mythology came about.  People drawing parallels between the world around them and their own lives.  Dreaming about the whys and hows things came to be and relating that to their everyday world.  Mixing the mundane with the magical and entertaining others with vivid dreams and stories.

Yeah, for me, that right there answers the question of “So, why urban fantasy?”  Besides the allegorical aspect, it’s just plain fun!

What about you?  What draws you to the urban fantasy and paranormal romance genre?  Comment with what you enjoy most about our modern-day takes on mythology and we’ll pick one commenter at random to win a free, signed copy of Red Hot Fury.

    Your question stole part of my answer. : ) I love seeing modern takes on mythology. I love the world-building required: How has this race (of gods, immortals, shape-shifters, etc) survived for all these years & no one known? Or does everyone know? How far does your power extend/what are the consequences of your powers? Can you tell anyone about your powers or do you have to keep it secret because of the consequences? And then what plot does the author use to share the most awesome/difficult effects on their character?

    See? I just love how the author spins the story & answers those (and usually even more awesome & relevant) questions.

    I love the Urban Fantasy and Paranormal genres because of the unlimited possibilities! We get to step outside of the everyday and let our imaginations run wild! I can’t really comment too much on the modern day takes on mythology because, shamefully, I am not very learned on the originals. Thanks!

    I read pretty much nothing but UF, and never really thought about it that way (the modern day mythology) but that makes complete sense, and may be why I like it so much. I’m a total dork for myths, and I definitely find myself drawn to the books that I know are based on research of mythology. I also like the social commentary. My husband is a comic book nerd, so while he prattles on about it’s place in the X-Men (which is also awesome) I get to relate it to the discrimination facing weres in a particular novel. +1

    +1 I love that writers take the mundane ordinary life and make it fantastic with the supernatural. It gives you normal and not-normal all in one! It’s amazing! You can be grounded in reality with the settings and some of the characters, and it’s with the other supernatural characters that take you into another world, even with the modern setting.

    I LOVE Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, or anything even close. It’s our world, only different. More exciting and full of things we wish we could do or see or even be. The characters are almost always appealing and the love interests are addicting. What’s not to like about these genres really? LOL
    Sure, there are some not so great books in that genre, but what genre doesn’t have it’s few downers.

    +1 Why I love PNR/UF? At the end of the day I pick up a great title filled with creativity that’s out of this world. And that is what I want. The news tell of various happenings around the world- a lot of good but most of it bad. We see things and experience life every day. When I read, I want to relax and escape the world of reality and enjoy fiction at its best: PNR and UF. The creativity of the genre attracts me and its authors keep me coming back for more.

    My mythology classes were probably some of my favorites. But the classics can be a little hard to read and understand at times. Which makes the modern retellings so great. The classic storyline and plot is there but it is put into a form that more people can understand in modern times. The characters are so complex and interesting. I like UF and paranormal because they provide a great escape from RL.

    I always loved mythology when I was a kid so UF is like a natural extension of that interest. Plus, it is total escapism. These days, when I read, I don’t want to be reminded of all of the problems out there. In UF, you know it’s not your world so it’s not so depressing.

    I love fantasy, but what I truly love about paranormal romance, urban fantasy is the background each author gives their characters. I love how each story differs in some way (sometimes small – sometimes enormously) because of the history, heritage, past, and belief structures are all based on what the authors believes or designs when they are writing. I suppose it is the almost uniqueness of the individual authors. I hope that makes sense.
    Thanks for hosting a contest – this looks like a great one!

    What draws me to the UF and paranormal genre are the different creatures like vampires and demons. I’ve always been fascinated by them and love reading the different takes on them. I love how the modern take on mythology has different twists to it, such as who the author makes as the villain/hero in the myth world.

    I love to read. I enjoy reading about forbidden love and defying all odds. I really like to invision myself being “saved” even though I hate when the damsel is always in distress. I like kick ass woman who can take care of themselves yet have the strong male always there for her.

    I also hate crime books because the world is filled with bad things. I read to escape reality – why would I enter a world that is just as bad as the one we live in?

    i actually read paranormal romance long before urban fantasy, and i love them for same yet different reasons. i gobble up paranormal romance because i love the otherworldly elements, yet they still fall in love – some things are universal, i guess. and i still heart the hea ending! i love urban fantasy because they’re darker, grittier, and they have more action to them, yet they still have that fantasy element to them. i love both genres for their complete-escape-from-the-real-world qualities – that’s one of the many reasons i read, after all….

    What about you? What draws you to the urban fantasy and paranormal romance genre? Comment with what you enjoy most about our modern-day takes on mythology.

    I love seeing the new twists that people add, along with a modern world. While I like pure fantasy books, it is interesting to see how someone can take this world and twist it just enough to fit the story they weave. I love UF and PNR because it isn’t like my reality. I like to take breaks from my reality.

    +1 – I’m drawn in by the mystery and the sexiness of it all. It’s exciting and so very different from reality.

    I enjoy the world building and how the author’s view of the immortals show in their stories – i think that UF/Para is full of possibilities !

    I’ve always loved mythological and paranormal creatures and the fact that they’re characters in stories now is awesome. I just love new takes on old things period but the fresh look at creatures like vampires, faeries, mermaids, and even furies just make me *squee*!
