Blogtober – Mini Review : Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Synopsis: “Welcome to Mexico City… An Oasis In A Sea Of Vampires…

Domingo, a lonely garbage-collecting street kid, is busy eking out a living when a jaded vampire on the run swoops into his life.

Atl, the descendant of Aztec blood drinkers, must feast on the young to survive and Domingo looks especially tasty. Smart, beautiful, and dangerous, Atl needs to escape to South America, far from the rival narco-vampire clan pursuing her. Domingo is smitten.

Her plan doesn’t include developing any real attachment to Domingo. Hell, the only living creature she loves is her trusty Doberman. Little by little, Atl finds herself warming up to the scrappy young man and his effervescent charm.

And then there’s Ana, a cop who suddenly finds herself following a trail of corpses and winds up smack in the middle of vampire gang rivalries.

Vampires, humans, cops, and gangsters collide in the dark streets of Mexico City. Do Atl and Domingo even stand a chance of making it out alive?”

OMG THIS BOOK IS NOT WHAT I IMAGINED. It’s a High 4/ low 5 rating.

Honestly it’s so unique. Certain Dark Things has everything I needed. It starts off a little slow but it picks up and that ending A+. There are different vampire species and putting them into mob-familys is genius. The classic Noir vibes are there add that with being set in Mexico City and with tons of culture and folklore, you’ve got one of my new favorites.

I would personally love a Cualli. Badass pets are the best!

Really though you should check out this book. Did I mention almost the entire character list is made of POC? No? Well it is and I’m loving it.

Give this book a chance is all I’m saying.
