A simple answer is to follow standard syntax. Supernatural is an adjective. Romance a noun. Supernatural Romance. Or, say, perhaps, a romance of the supernatural kind. Oh, and young adult is also an adjective in many contexts.Chantelle.S. wrote:But now, I'm confused about what to label it as: romance supernatural, or supernatural romance? Does it matter which comes first if those two elements are balanced out in the novel?
However, the two facets ought best not only influence each other, they ought best also tie together in the plot. Say, for instance, how do the supernatural motifs complicate the romance? Loki stalking the protagonist in terms of dramatic conflict might be seeking to incite Ragnarök through her. Her private stakes and the stakes for readers, public stakes, might then be salvation or eternal condemnation in terms of dramatic confict and the final outcome.
