About the Book
Marjorie Diaz’s Unfortunate Introduction to Ancestral Politics & Foul Play (Marjorie Diaz Series); Desdemona Wren
New Adult; Fantasy; 332 Pages
AntlerDoe Publishing; 1 edition (April 2, 2019)
Marjorie Diaz has been marked for death.
After her relationship with Patrick Watkins ends, Marjorie discovers that everyone in her life has been lying to her. Even her best friend, Lucian Maravalle.
Now, Marjorie is being hunted by a powerful magical family who will stop at nothing to kill her.
Lucian and her family have sworn to protect Marjorie from these nightmarish beasts, but Marjorie isn’t sure she can trust them. They keep secret after secret and, even after Marjorie has begged for them to tell her everything, they continue to keep her in the dark.
Marjorie struggles with her own mortality as she embarks on a futile journey to remain alive and reason with the beings that are hunting her.
She finds out the hard way that humans don’t matter on the other side of the veil. Unless Marjorie has something of use to offer, she’s better off dead.
Book 2 in the Marjorie Diaz Series.
About the Author
Desdemona Wren is a novelist who writes gay fiction with monsters, witches, and actual plots. She’s from Seattle, WA, but currently resides in the mystical land of Northern California. Where everybody wears coats all the time, nobody says ‘brah’, ‘bruh’, ‘bro’ or any variation of that word, and absolutely nobody surfs.
She has two cats named Oliver and Ophelia who have traveled the world. From The Great Smoky Mountains, to the tallest peaks of The Cascades, and even to the Grand Canyon; they’ve been everywhere. For more information on future books, visit her website at http://desdemonawren.com
Holy cow! Desdemona Wren hits this one out of the park, as Marjorie Diaz returns for her continuing story in this twisty, action-packed sequel.
Marjorie has some serious problems for a recently-graduated college student. Her dream internship is down the drain and staying alive means living in the prison that her best friend’s family calls home (actually, it’s an enchanted mansion, but she never knew they even owned a mansion before she got marked for death, so… what-the-heck!).
She’s got some serious trust issues to work out before someone manages to make good on the bounty that she’s got riding on her hand. Her ex-boyfriend is a member of a monstrous family that wants her dead. In general, this twenty-something is having the mother of all bad days.
Ms. Wren has taken her writing to the next level in this second installment of the Marjorie Diaz story. She’s kept the action moving forward and threw a little romance into the mix for a little variety. I look forward to seeing where we go next.
