YA dark fantasy books usually have Gothic elements (black dresses, cemeteries, crows and ravens, death, ruined castles) and characters with supernatural abilities (shifters, angels, werewolves and shifters). Plus of course, a tragic or star-crossed romance. That adds up to a thrilling, emotional read with themes that resonate—with teen readers especially, but the depth of dark fantasy books can be entertaining for older readers as well (anybody who enjoys Edgar Allan Poe can appreciate the themes in Kate Lauren’s Fallen.)

Below is a list of some of our favorite dark fantasy & paranormal romance YA books. So if you need to get your fix, check these out and add some to your TBR list!


The Scarlet Thread by D.S. Murphy


When Kaidance Monroe touches people, she sees how they die. After failing to save her brother, even as she knew how his death will happen, she is left in a juvenile detention facility. The events have left Kaidance closed and distant – physically and emotionally. But before she turned eighteen, she met an alluring young man to whom she gave all her secrets, and who told her that she was special. But he’s not the only one looking for her. Now Kaidance, after escaping for her life, is living at a mansion and learning how to control her abilities. Abilities that are so powerful, even the gods get jealous. She must be careful, especially now that her would-be killer is starting to fall for her.

What do the readers say?

  • “I love books about mythology and when I find those books that have a unique take on the myths, it’s even better. This book has the main characters of mythology, but it’s not always obvious. Figuring out who is who was part of the fun for me while I read it. The fact that the main character, Kaidance, isn’t connected to the retelling of Persephone or one of the other main mythology stories really made this a more interesting read.” – DyannaAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

Touched: The Caress of Fate by Elisa S. Amore


When Gemma meets the mysterious and captivating Evan James, a shadow starts creeping into her own life. Suddenly she’s on her way to face her destiny – all thanks to Even, who’s actually a soldier of Death. Gemma has to die, and Evan has to kill her. But what if she starts to fall for him?

What do the readers say?

  • “This book is so romantic. It goes beyond swoon-worthy, and heart-stopping, into a realm all on its own… Although they feel an instant connection or attraction, their love story is a slow, gradual sensual build-up that had me feeling everything Gemma and Evan felt. Which brings me nicely onto emotional complexity and characterisation. Both of which were superb in this book… I felt every emotion skin-deep, heart-deep. I felt the pain, heartache, joy, longing, and the frantic urgency to save one another. Be still my heart. Those sections, in particular, were stunningly written. So poetic. Beautiful.” – Siobhan Davisauthor and Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand


Clara Gardner is half-angel, and it’s something she’s only found out recently. Her angel blood makes her better than other humans – smarter, faster, stronger. But the best thing about it is that she knows that she’s meant to do something on earth. She just has to figure it out. Her world, however, is quickly changing, when she meets two boys: Christian and Tucker, who both appeal to her. Clara is forced to navigate a world of unseen dangers and uncertainties, and all the while she has to be sure she’s ready to face her destiny.

What do the readers say?

  • “Unearthly is a delightful read, focusing on Nephilim, or as they prefer in this book angel-blood. The writing is paced wonderfully and the story gripped me right away. Cynthia has created likable and easy to relate with characters, that I was emotionally invested in.” – Brandi Leigh KosinerAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

Angelfall by Susan Ee

She has to take risks and do things she never thought she’d have to do – like make a deal with an enemy angel, Raffe. Penryn and Raffe have to put everything on the line in order to make their world whole again.

What do the readers say?

  • “This book is a winner, and its author has it going on with this lineup of unique characters and their “beginning-after-the-end” post-apocalyptic backdrop. There an experience here that’s definitely worth expanding on; I’m already looking forward to the next book in this series.” – Robert GryphonAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

Revelation by Randi Cooley Wilson

Suddenly, all the things that Eve knows about her life are challenged greatly – especially now that a demonic army is hunting her. But her protector, Asher, isn’t allowed to fall in love with her. And then another one enters the picture: Gage Gallagher, who may be more dangerous to Eve than the army that’s tracking her down. Now Eve is faced with the monumental decision to choose between two sides, which will ultimately determine the fulfillment of her destiny.

What do the readers say?

  • “Excellent book, hard to put down. Kept my interest the whole time and now I have to get the other books in this series.” – Roseanna T. GaribaldiAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick


Nora Grey has never fallen in love with a boy before, but when she meets Patch, she becomes inexplicably drawn to him. Patch is mysterious and has secrets, however. Wherever she goes, he’s there. He knows a lot about her friends – maybe even more than what she knows. And she’s not sure whether or not she should trust Patch. But she learns that she’s at the center of an ancient battle between immortals and the fallen – a truth that unsettles her more than her feelings for Patch.

What do the readers say?

  • I’ve seen young teenage girls, who would not consider themselves readers, finish all four books in this series in less than three weeks. The stories are fast moving and adventurous. You will never think of the word “Patch” in the same way after reading these books!” – SarahAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

Hidden Wings

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

And it’s getting harder, as she keeps having nightmares of a desert journey, and hallucinations of women weeping blood. When Helen crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she does not know that both of them will be players in the recreation of an ancient tragedy that the Fates keep on repeating.

What do the readers say?

  • “The best thing about Starcrossed is that while you are kept in plenty of suspense to keep you sucked in, you are also given just the right amount of information to ensure that you never get overwhelmed or frustrated from a lack of information… I’m really eager to see what happens next as there was a twist at the ends that can only spell trouble for the future… Prepared to be sucked in from almost the start and make sure to give yourself plenty of time to read this one as you won’t be able to put it down. Definitely a fantastic debut that you won’t want to miss if you are a fan of mythology in the YA genre.” – A Book ObsessionAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

Touched by Elisa Amore

White Raven by J.L. Weil

But then she meets the gorgeous Zane Hunter, six feet tall with a Celtic charm and a wonderful voice – the kind of guy that Piper likes. But Piper knows that not all is what it seems with Zane. Something supernatural. And now Piper suddenly has to deal with her past again – someone wants to kill her, and it terrifies her as much as her connection with Zane terrifies her.

What do the readers say?

  • “The romance between Zane and Piper is… unique in that their interactions were natural and entertaining and not stilted and awkward like you might find in other romances. Piper’s internal dialogue will make you laugh out loud, and Zane’s frustratingly gorgeous good looks will have you swooning at the turn of every page. All and all, I gave this book five stars because it captured, and held, my attention for the solid three hours I spent reading it. Can’t wait to read the sequel!” – Princess Aud 🙂Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

What do the readers say?

Again, I felt the author got the tone just right. Very imaginative. Excellent writing. I am looking forward to the next story with much anticipation. A thoroughly enjoyable read. Highly recommended.” – JSGAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

What do the readers say?

Meanwhile, the Matefinder of the werewolves has been found, more powerful than any other werewolf that has come before. And she is bound to be the most hunted werewolf in history.

What do the readers say?

  • “I could go on and on about Matefinder, but then I would be revealing too much and ruining the book for you. So I’ll just say, “Buy the book, dangit,” and then you can enjoy it as much as I did. I highly recommend his novel to all paranormal romance fans whether they are fans of werewolf novels or not. Leia Stone, you are my new favorite author!” – C.J. AnayaAmazon user and author of The Healer series. [Review from Amazon]

Now she’s sent to the Lyle House for troubled teens, where her housemates all have their own dark secrets, and whose allegiances she’s not sure of. Now it’s up to Chloe to uncover the mystery of Lyle House, before its secrets come to haunt her.

What do the readers say?

  • “The Summoning was unlike anything I had expected. Kelley Armstrong has managed to mix a supernatural drama with a dash of teenage angst and a whole lot of conspiracy. This novel had an underlying sense of eeriness throughout it, waiting to burst… This book was amazing and the ending left it completely open for what is sure to be a fantastic trilogy.” – Monica PetersenAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

What do the readers say?

  • “If you’re looking for a book that includes hot, alien boys, plenty of sarcasm, sizzling chemistry… the right amount of laugh out loud moments and is over all is one of those books you can’t get enough of, then I’d recommend picking up Obsidian! I think YA fans are going to fall in love with Daemon & Kat.” – Mundie Moms and Mundie Kids Book ReviewsAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

What do the readers say?

  • “I was surprised and pleased when I found out the biters were Zombies. Zombies are much cooler than Vampires! Right? This was such a wonderful, fast paced book that keeps you on the edge of our seat… Sometimes you forget just how young Wisteria is because she has been through so much in her young life… I am looking forward to the second book. A definite must read!” – The Books You ReadAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

What do the readers say?

  • “Creagh takes its time developing the plot, giving the characters good motives for their actions and allowing you to feel like these are people whose actions and psychology you can comprehend. She does a great job of describing a brand-new, scary, chilling dimension, so much so that I actually saw a Noc in a nightmare shortly after finishing this novel. She adeptly weaves well-researched facts into edgy, dark fiction that made me look at some of Poe’s darkest work from new perspectives.” – S. MelderAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

When Stars Die by Amber Forbes

What do the readers say?

  • “The novel follows the events of Bram Stoker’s Dracula but is fleshed out and given a richer narrative by Syrie James. She makes a great attempt to show us richer, three-dimensional characters than the ones of Bram Stoker, adding backstory for both Dracula and Mina Harker’s origins. This book was an absolute joy to read and I will be adding it to my personal library.” – Araliamazon user. [Review from Amazon]

Netherworld by K.N. Lee

What do the readers say?

  • “This is one of those types of books that I definitely recommend keeping an open mind while reading and just go with the flow of the story. It’s not going to be a book that will appeal to everyone, but for those who like YA books which go off into the realm of the unexpected, this is well worth the consideration. Can’t wait to read book two, Ransom!” – What the Cat ReadAmazon user. [Review on Amazon]

Shadow of Time by Jen Minkman

And there’s another thing disturbing her: Josh keeps appearing in her dreams, and she doesn’t know why.

What do the readers say?

  • “I loved the storyline that included Hannah, Josh (the hot Native American), and Hannah’s brother Ben. There were aspects of reincarnation, animal spirit guides, a wise medicine man, and skinwalkers (think of evil ghosts that can change into people or animals) that drew me in and had me hooked. There was romance, humor, horror, and history all wrapped in this book that made it a joy to read.” – KrissiMicheleAmazon user. [Review from Amazon]

What do the readers say?

  • “I really loved this book. From the first page I was totally hooked and couldn’t put it down until I was finished. I loved all the characters, they were really well developed and fun to get to know. The plot was very engaging and had some twists and surprises that I definitely wasn’t expecting. There isn’t a lot of romance in this book, but the little there was, was very cute and promising for future books. The idea for this story was unique and different from anything else I have ever read. I enjoyed Katlyn’s writing and I am really surprised that this is her debut novel. While there isn’t a cliffhanger at the end of this book, which I appreciated, I still can’t wait to see what happens next. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys clean fun YA Paranormal books, it will not disappoint.” Dark Faerie Tales, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]
