Raegan’s book review of Vampires of El Norte

This must-read novel tells the story of Nena, a healer who was presumably attacked and killed by a vampire 9 years ago. Nena is filled with resentment upon reuniting with her past love, Nestor because she insists Nestor abandoned her years ago. This issue suddenly becomes overshadowed due to the emergence of a new terrifying, life-threatening situation. Nena and Nestor must work together if they want to make it out alive. The spooky yet romantic vibes are perfect for October.

“They claimed the land all the way from the Nueces to Río Bravo. Will they stop there? They’ll take, and take, and then what?” His voice was raw with emotion. “What will become of us? Who will we be without the land we grew up on? Without our home?”
