02 Feb A cover for Certain Dark Things
My second novel, Certain Dark Things, concerns a teenage garbage picker and a bunch of narco vampires in Mexico City. It now has a release date (October 25) and a cover. Please pre-order the book. Certain Dark Things marks my first venture with Thomas Dunne and editor Quressa Robinson. My debut novel Signal to Noise, published by Solaris, has done very well critically and is now on the Locus Recommended List and the Locus Poll. It’s the first time I make it into Locus. The book also made it onto year’s best lists by B&N’s Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog, RT, BookRiot, Buzzfeed, i09, Vice, and Tor.com.
Certain Dark Things
Welcome to Mexico City… An Oasis In A Sea Of Vampires…
Domingo, a lonely garbage-collecting street kid, is busy eeking 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?
Silvia’s debut novel, Signal to Noise, won a Copper Cylinder Award and was a finalist for the British Fantasy, Locus, Aurora and Solaris awards. She is the winner of a World Fantasy Award for her work on the anthology She Walks in Shadows.
