It’s time to get excited because Certain Dark Things releases tomorrow, October 25th, 2016! To help create more buzz around the book, author Silvia Moreno-Garcia is collaborating with Read Diverse Books to host this giveaway.
Certain Dark Things screamed “auto-buy” for me the moment I heard about it. Not only is the cover gorgeous, but it’s also about vampires, which I love, and it’s set in Mexico City! I’m positive the book was tailor-made for me. Expect a review on the blog before the year ends.
Certain Dark Things
Welcome to Mexico City… An Oasis In A Sea Of Vampires…
Domingo, a lonely garbage-collecting street kid, is busy eeking 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?
