    Interred is a wonderful story and was a refreshing thing to read. I have to say that I have been reading a lot of paranormal stories but as everyone who knows me knows I love time travel stories and stories that have to do with time. Interred grabs you right from the beginning and keeps you sated till the end wanting more and needing more.

    Interred is a story about a girl named Baxter who is turning 16 and when she does something magical will happen to her. But to her horror her mother never told...more

    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 Fred...more

    Interred is a tricky novel to classify. It’s YA, yes, and it involves magic, but I wouldn’t call it a story about witchcraft. Time manipulation is at play, but I wouldn’t necessarily call it a tale of time travel, either. In some ways it reminded me of the NBC series HEROES, especially the part about absorbing abilities from other magical beings – stealing them in a sense. *shivers*

    One thing’s for certain, Marilyn Almodóvar has mad writing skills. Her language is all kinds of fun. I picked out a...more

    So I had a strong attraction to this book the minute I helped do the cover reveal and was convinced I saw the clock ticking. I have this weird love of clocks and fascination with time so I dove in head first into reading.

    Wow…I adored this book. I found it to be really creative and kept me enthralled the entire time I was reading. Plus the dash of Harry Potter and Dr. Who references made me feel like Marilyn Almodovar was speaking to my inner geek.

    Declan was such an interesting character. He sta...more

    Turning sixteen is supposed to be a milestone, a rite of passage, another year closer to being an “official” adult. For Baxter, her upcoming sixteenth birthday is looking to be a nightmare of epic proportions, because the family skeletons have started coming out of the closet in droves! Baxter discovers she has magical abilities, they are strong, they are rare and almost everyone wants to either control her or destroy her, but first she must endure being Interred, as in being closed up in a cask...more

    EEEP! I loved it. So interesting and tres unique! I loved the whole time-bending (*cough* Avatar *cough) aspect of it, because that genres always interesting to read about. Marilyn was able to weave suspense, intrigue, romance, and magic into one tale which will not be forgotten anytime soon.

    Baxter was an amazing and kick-ass heroine who never bored me and who kept me turning the pages one after another with her amazing commentary ;) Seriously, she's sar...more

    This was a book that you definitely have to keep reading in order to get fully invested in the plot and characters. To be honest, the beginning wasn’t really holding my interest and I may not have kept reading if I wasn’t part of the blog tour. I’m really glad I gave it a full read though because the second half was much better than the first.

    I loved Baxter from the get-go. I liked her relationship with her family and her inner thoughts were laced with humor. She comes across as an everyday girl...more

    I received a review copy of Interred in return for an honest review as part of the blog tour hosted by YA Bound. Baxter’s sixteenth birthday is just around the corner quickly approaching, when a stranger shows up at her home. She learns that her mother has inherited a family home, and that she has inherited a pendent that holds a teenage boy trapped in a time loop. Declan has been locked in the time loop for over 122 years and he’s hoping that Baxter will be able to break his curse. Baxter also...more

    Interred centers around a typical teenage girl named Baxter. Except, as she approaches the age of sixteen, Baxter finds out that she’s not so typical. When a relative from across the pond visits and informs her of her magical abilities, Baxter is thrust into a world full of those who want to use her time-bending abilities for their own gain. Baxter also learns that as a ‘welcome’ in...more

    Baxter is spunky, stubborn, sarcastic and loyal. She also as an inner strength that is tested to the limit time and time again. Her world is turned upside down as she approaches her sixteenth birthday. Her Mums cousin from England turns up uninvited and all but barges his way into their house he brings with him a box containing an onyx necklace with the name Declan engraved. Through Fred Baxter learns that she is not a normal teenager after all and she doesn’t come from a normal family. She come...more

    I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    First of all, I was glad to read a book with two actual involved parents in it. I've been seeing a lot of single parent books and quite a few that just don't mention where the heck the other parent is. Yes, it is a step-parent, but the main character likes him, so it's all good.

    Baxter is a teenage girl, pretty normal, acts 'real'. She finds out right before her 16th birthday that she needs to attend a ceremony to be Interred,...more

    I am excited to be among the first readers and reviewers of Interred. When I first read the blurb I was intrigued by the concept, and Almodovar didn't disappoint. Her writing is flawless, and the story flowed perfectly. Baxter is a realistic teen, not perfect, and full of emotions and unbalanced feelings. Her whole world is turned upside down and I think her reactions throughout are typical of a sixteen year old. I loved the male characters as well, particularly Jack. The plot thickened througho...more

    Interred definitely has an interesting premise, as far as the time-travel aspect goes. While the majority of YA books contain paranormal elements and/or creatures, Interred differs from the rest in that it doesn’t contain vampires, werewolves, or witches, and there isn’t a love triangle. It does, however, contain magic.

    Baxter Jacobs’ life quickly goes from normal to totally screwed in no time at all. She inherits a pendant, which contains the soul of a boy named Declan. Only Baxter can see him,...more

    Well, I am just going to have to come right out and say it. This book sort of blew my mind. First off, the names of the characters were totally freaking awesome. Baxter and Declan? Jack's name isn't awesome, but I can forgive him, because he is awesome. I love the name Declan. I know, irrelevant, but still. moving on.

    The whole concept that the kids come into their supernatural powers at sixteen is really interesting. I mean, they are just automatically gifted with these amazing powers, that the...more

    Personally this book felt like the very first completed novel by the author, that they will look back on in ten years and think 'what on earth made me publish that.' That's not to say the book was bad, it just needed polishing in terms of the writing and the style.

    "epic fail" Really? realllly? Honestly this just sounded cringy like you have a teenage daughter who you've heard say it and then included it in the book to sound 'down with the kids'

    The whole opening of this book read like a first d...more

    MY REVIEW

    Interred followed the story of Baxter, a young woman who discovers that she has an incredible destiny to fulfill. Baxter discovers that she has powers and has been chosen as one of the Interred, which is a ceremony that she and several other selected young people are chosen to participate.

    The Chosen are selected to go through a ritualized burying, on the night of their Interred ceremony, they are to find their way out and attempt to make it back to a designated location; although along...more

    INTERRED, for me, is a hard book to rate. There's parts of the book that I absolutely fell in love with, while other parts, namely the romance, fell a bit short. Overall, I'm settling with a rating of 3 or 3.25.

    INTERRED follows the journey of a girl named Baxter Jacobs, who has the ability to “bend” time, as well as other mystical skills. As a heroine, Baxter was smart and strong, but most of all, snarky. This is just my personal taste speaking, but for a heroine or hero to really stand out to m...more

    Interred is one of those books that I feel like I have been waiting for. So different from the vampires, zombies, and werewolves that seem to be filling the teen shelves (not that there is anything wrong with any of those), Marilyn’s world promised to be so interesting. Anything to do with Time and bending of time, I am all for. (Did anyone else love the TARDIS references as much as I did?!)

    I do have to admit, the beginning is a little slow for me. But after Baxter g...more

    My Review:
    If I was to describe Interred, I would describe it as an original story filled with intrigue, drama, and magic. This book has a really great cast of characters, great world building, romance and the writing in it is very fluid. Marilyn Almodóvar really has a way with words because it was really easy to get into the story and I thought the dialogue between the characters was top notch.


    On to the world building in this book. I really loved it. I thought it was sophisticated and intricate...more

    This review originally appeared on Lust For Stories for the Interred Blog Tour.

    If I had to describe Interred in a single word, it'd be original. I can honestly say I've never read anything like this before. It took the not-often-used idea of controlling time, sprinkle it with a bunch of new ideas, and voila, you've got this wonderful story blooming out of it.

    Honestly, the plotline of the story was a little generic, but guess what? I loved reading it anyways. I loved the seemingly average girl wh...more

    *I won a copy of Interred from Goodreads' first reads.
    This was a great book! I love the paranormal YA genre, and Interred was definitely one of the best I've read in a while. Plus, Baxter is a strong, likeable, non-whiny heroine (which, as we all know, is something rare nowadays.)
    Also, I'm a huge geek and there was references to geek fandoms, so I'm happy :3
