Novels At Night August Edition

 

Hello everyone and thank you for checking out my blog today. It is a new month and that means a new pick for the Novels At Night Bookclub over on Instagram. (SHHH….Its just me and a couple of my friends reading together.)

Anywho…

This month we have decided to look into our own group and choose one of the Indie Author’s novels to read. We decided to read……

 

Synopsis

Not one of the sacrifices chosen over the long history had survived–until now.

On the tip of the Yucatan peninsula, the immortal Castillo family gathers in Tulum. Weary and haunted, they receive the names of fifty-two human sacrifices chosen once every fifty-two years for the Underworld, a tradition thought to have disappeared with the fall of the Aztec and Mayan empires.

Driving home one night, college freshman Zara Moss swerves to avoid hitting a ghastly figure in the road. Lucas Castillo witnesses the car crash, but when it comes time to supervise her abduction from the wreckage, he intervenes. Something is different about Zara: Lucas has been having dreams of her arrival for five hundred years.

As Lucas and Zara come together to put an end to the bloody sacrifices, they discover that the ancient tradition isn’t so easily broken. The gods are angry, and they have until the Winter Solstice to drag Zara to the Underworld.

 

Sounds amazing right?!?! I have received this book last year for review before I even go to know Dela. She is an amazing woman and I can’t wait to dive into this world. I have only heard great things about it.

So I am off to take this beautiful book off of my shelf and put it at arms reach. Thank you for stopping by!!
