    I am writing a murder mystery set on a distant planet inhabited by vampire-zombies. I am not sure what genre this would fit into?

    (I feel like I'm missing something, but I'm going to give my honest answer anyway..)

    The options you provided a completely different than what you're describing.

    Romance is a genre. Mystery, fantasy, and sci-fi are also genres.

    Young adult is a target group, not a genre. There's young adult romance, young adult thriller, young adult paranormal, young adult fantasy, and more.

    I'd say fantasy based on vampire-zombies. Young adult, new adult, or adult would depend on how old your MC is or who you want to read your book.

    Didn't the OP start the question with "murder mystery" ? I'm confused.
