Publisher Description

From Silvia Moreno-Garcia, the New York Times bestselling author of Mexican Gothic, comes Certain Dark Things, a pulse-pounding neo-noir that reimagines vampire lore.

Welcome to Mexico City, an oasis in a sea of vampires. Domingo, a lonely garbage-collecting street kid, is just trying to survive its heavily policed streets when a jaded vampire on the run swoops into his life. Atl, the descendant of Aztec blood drinkers, is smart, beautiful, and dangerous. Domingo is mesmerized.

Atl needs to quickly escape the city, far from the rival narco-vampire clan relentlessly pursuing her. Her plan doesn’t include Domingo, but little by little, Atl finds herself warming up to the scrappy young man and his undeniable charm. As the trail of corpses stretches behind her, local cops and crime bosses both start closing in.

Vampires, humans, cops, and criminals collide in the dark streets of Mexico City. Do Atl and Domingo even stand a chance of making it out alive? Or will the city devour them all?

Original Twist

A unique and interesting story, but one best listened to with earbuds. The narrator is very soft-spoken, switches accents with ease, and is pleasant to listen to. Unfortunately, in a car, that soft voice means it is hard to hear sometimes. The narrator’s voice is soothing and could easily read you to sleep or calm you in a panic attack. I found that a wonderful juxtaposition to the gore and menace found within the story.

Silvia Moreno-Garcia is a writer who adheres to the belief that there is no such thing as plot armor and happily ever afters are in the eye of the beholder. The end came too soon. This was excellent.

Thank you to NetGalley, Sylvia Moreno-Garcia, and McMillan Audio for giving me the chance to listen to this story and share my honest thoughts and opinions with others.
