    Interred (Chronicles of the Interred #1)


Time has never been an issue for Baxter Jacobs, but then she never knew she had the ability to Bend it.

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Baxter inherits a pendant that will change her life. Connected to the pendant is a dark and mysterious young man named Declan Ashdown. Trapped in a Time loop for the past 122 years, Declan needs Baxter’s help to escape. The only problem is, she has no idea how to do it.

To acquire the power she needs to free him, she’ll become one of the Interred, those whose Magical abilities emerge as they come of age. When she does, she’ll discover that Declan isn’t the only one interested in the fact that she’s a Time Bender.

As the Interment arrives, Baxter knows this will be no Sweet Sixteen. A vengeful relative and ruthless Council are determined to control her. Declan’s powerful and charming descendant, Jack Ashdown, claims he can save her. She’ll soon have to decide who she can trust, and how to master her new abilities before Time runs out.

WOW! Interred was a fantastic surprise! Interred storyline is fully-loaded with magic, Time Bender, time travel, mystery, suspense and cute romances. Marilyn Almodovar’s outstanding world building and awesome characters totally took me on an incredible adventure. I enjoyed all the different characters with so many wonderful personalities.

Baxter is turning sweet sixteen, except it's not so sweet. Baxter's mother has been hiding a few little details from her about who she really is, and when Frederick shows up from the England Magical Being Council, Baxter not too thrilled with Frederick when she learns who she is, or about the way the Council wants to celebrate the night of her birthday, to discover what magic ability she will receive. Baxter will also meet two boys; one she’ll have to help release from a time loop, and the other she’ll lose her heart to.

I love Baxter. She’s a strong, feisty, sarcastic heroine. Baxter jumps right in to do what she has to do. Jack and Declan are also great. Jack is flirty with a cocky sense of humor, and no way is Baxter going to able to resist this gorgeous boy. Declan is gorgeous too, but has a colder, dark side and he’s been trapped in a time loop for one hundred and twenty two years, and even though he’s Jack's great uncle, Declan hasn't aged over seventeen. Both these guys have a connection with Baxter. But the question Baxter is asking herself is: which one can she trust?

Interred is a fantastic adventure of romance, magic and betrayal with Baxter, Declan and Jack. I also enjoyed that Interred is more of a mature young adult novel. I recommend Interred as a fun, magical read with a heartbreaking cliffhanger ending. Yep, I will be waiting on the second book in the Chronicles of the Interred series!

About the Author:
Marilyn Almodóvar is the author of a series of YA paranormal novels. Born in Ft. Huachuca, Arizona, Lyn is a lover of words whose reading tastes range from Victorian novels to the books of Stephen King. Her favorite past-times have always been reading and writing, two activities that let her escape to other worlds.

It was this love that propelled her to choose Theater and French as majors in University, with a minor in English Victorian Literature. Lyn lived for almost a decade in England followed by three years in France before returning home to the States. A self-confessed citizen of the world, she is fluent in English, French and Spanish, with basic knowledge of the Italian language.
Lyn could happily exist breathing the clean air of Narnia, trapped in a cupboard under the stairs with Harry, fighting alongside Captain Jack Sparrow, doing an internship in Torchwood, or traveling around time and space with the Doctor…as long as she can have Mr. Spock, Captain Kirk and Captain Mal as companions.

Lyn currently lives in Central Florida with her French husband, English-born eldest son, and French-born youngest son. Her debut YA Novel, Interred, will be published by Iambe books on 01/22/2013.
