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 the way, they would be tested and would need to use their special abilities to survive these test. Baxter along with Declan, a mysterious young man that had been trapped in a time loop, by Baxter’s ancestor, and wants desperately to help her escape, to past these test.Because in doing so, his freedom would be assured at the end. A tentative friendship blossoms, between Baxter and Declan but becomes strained, when Declan’s great nephrew, his descendant Jack AshDown, tells Baxter that he is supposed to help her, that he is link to her as a healer.

So he comes along, and before long Baxter finds herself attracted to Jack. The night of the Interred Baxter, and Jack escapes the burial and begins a journey, but soon things does not go as plan, when Baxter, and Jack discover that their lives are very much in danger and that this is no longer a game. Baxter and friends go on a harrowing journey across time that ends with a breath taking betrayal and a stunning ending!

This debut novel from Marilyn Almodovar was outstanding. This was a fresh, and unique twist on the paranormal saga. A very refreshing change, Interred combined elements of the paranormal and the dystopian genres. It had passion, adventure and suspense! The reader is sucked into this grand adventure; I enjoyed the relationship between Baxter and Declan as well as Baxter and Jack… I most enjoyed the new plotline, enjoying the discovery of this new world and its rituals and the players of the Interred. I fully loved this book and recommend it for anyone who enjoys paranormal, with a little dystopian flavor. Interred is akin to the Hunger Games meet Beautiful Creatures!
