Blog Tour: Fissure by Marilyn Almodóvar


Baxter Jacobs just survived the worst Sweet Sixteen in history: buried in a coffin, hunted down by assassins, and losing almost everything that mattered to her. She’s ready for some normalcy, but “normal” won’t play any part of this Time Bender’s future.

Now that the immediate threat is over, Baxter learns just how much the English Council expects of the newest Interred. The pressure has her seriously considering her uncle’s offer to take her to New York, especially since she thinks it will keep her Healer, Jack, from overusing his abilities. Knowing the New York Council’s ranks are filled with beings using dark powers, however, makes her hesitate.

Before she can choose, the decision is wrenched from her. Fissures in Time result in a new battle with an old enemy. Someone she thought she’d lost reenters her life, and she’ll discover a web of lies woven into the fabric of Time…lies only she can unravel. Baxter will have to use her growing abilities to try and reveal the truth, even if it forever changes the reality she knows.

About the Author 

Marilyn Almodóvar is the author of a series of YA paranormal novels. Born in Ft. Huachuca, Arizona, Lyn is a lover of words whose reading tastes range from Victorian novels to the books of Stephen King. Her favorite past-times have always been reading and writing, two activities that let her escape to other worlds.
Lyn could happily exist breathing the clean air of Narnia, trapped in a cupboard under the stairs with Harry, fighting alongside Captain Jack Sparrow, doing an internship in Torchwood, or traveling around time and space with the long as she can have Mr. Spock, Captain Kirk and Captain Mal as companions.
She currently lives in Central Florida with her French husband, English-born eldest son, and French-born youngest son. 

Sometimes authors suffer from Sucktastic Sequel Syndrome, where the second book doesn’t quite live up to the first. But in Marilyn’s case, I think, Fissure is even better than Interred.

Baxter is still reeling over some pretty traumatic events that happened in the first book, but she’s doing her best to cope. Torn between the English Council, who takes care of her, and the New York Council, where her uncle wants her to reside, Baxter doesn’t have time (no pun intended) to weigh her options, as she’s pulled into a fissure. What awaits her on the other side—or who, I should say—is pretty shocking, in my opinion. Will Baxter find a way to return to the present, or will she be stuck in the past?

Overall, I enjoyed this book much more than the first. It starts out a bit slow, but once the action starts, readers are in for an exciting ride. I also like the relationship between Baxter and Jack. Those two are adorable together, and their connection is not over-the-top. Marilyn’s done a great job creating this world, so if you’re looking for the next paranormal adventure with just a hint of romance, be sure to pick up the first book in this series, Interred, as well as a copy of its sequel, Fissure.
