Interred (Chronicles of the Interred #1)
The cover was created by the amazing Devan Edwards of Nimbi Designs.
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 the 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.

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!
