Published: Unnamed Press - October 18th, 2021

Maybe I just love a good female rage tale, but a hunger is absolutely satiated when reading this unleashing. This book is dripping with questions like "why not punish the men that wrong and bore me?" and "is it so wrong to romanticize losing absolute control?". You will want to savor every last bite when devouring this book, but one piece of advice; read on an empty stomach.

Published: Tor Nightfire - September 7th, 2021

I have been wildly obsessed with vampires since I was a child and this book just recharged and electrified that obsession once again. I was so excited reading this vampire noir slash horror set in Mexico City with the ancient Aztec language of Nahuatl being utilized as an almost love letter to a culture that is slowly fading away. And the vampires are not what you typically think vampires are! The imagery and tie in to history really make this one of my favorite vampire novels ever.

I am so happy I stumbled upon this one and I hope that many will now as well.
