This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Publication Date: October 25, 2016
Genre: Adult Urban Fantasy, Mystery/Thriller
Welcome to Mexico City… An Oasis In A Sea Of Vampires…
Domingo, a lonely garbage-collecting street kid, is busy seeking out a living when a jaded vampire on the run swoops into his life.
Atl, the descendant of Aztec blood drinkers, must feast on the young to survive and Domingo looks especially tasty. Smart, beautiful, and dangerous, Atl needs to escape to South America, far from the rival narco-vampire clan pursuing her. Domingo is smitten.
Her plan doesn’t include developing any real attachment to Domingo. Hell, the only living creature she loves is her trusty Doberman. Little by little, Atl finds herself warming up to the scrappy young man and his effervescent charm.
And then there’s Ana, a cop who suddenly finds herself following a trail of corpses and winds up smack in the middle of vampire gang rivalries.
Vampires, humans, cops, and gangsters collide in the dark streets of Mexico City. Do Atl and Domingo even stand a chance of making it out alive?
Why I’m waiting for this one? I recently got approved for this on Netgalley but I’ve seen absolutely NO ONE talking about it and it sounds AMAZING so I wanted to feature it. I’m really excited for it and I am planning on reading it SOOOOOOON. Okay so here is a list of reasons why I am excited for it.
1. It’s a diverse book.
2. It takes place in Mexico.
3. It’s written by a Mexican author.
5. Vampire gangs, what? I’m totally on board. Let’s go.
6. Look at that cover it’s gorgeous. *heart eyes*
7. Did I mention it’s a diverse book by a WOC?
