Book #1: Chronicles of the Interred
Rating: 4½/5 stars
The eve of every kid’s sixteenth birthday should be a magical time; there should be nerves about driving solo, excitement over the party and, no cares in the world. Never should a kid on the cusp of such a huge milestone have to be worried about being buried alive and hoping her magical powers will be enough to get her out alive. Yeah, no one should have that crap on their agenda.
Baxter is a different sort of 16-year-old. Though she didn’t know it until her mother could no longer hide the truth, Baxter is a magical being from a long, long line of magical beings and she has the very unique and coveted ability of Time Bending. She also has a ghost by the name of Declan who is at once hateful, snide, sad, funny, caring and, completely untrustworthy. After being forced to spill the beans about her daughter’s abilities and what comes next, the family packs up and moves to England so Baxter can participate in the Interment – a magical beings rite of passage that every 16-year-old must go through. Essentially, Baxter’s powers will manifest on the night of her 16th birthday and she will be able to work her way out of the coffin with Declan’s (yeah, the untrustworthy one) guidance and her newfound powers. According to everyone, including her lying, deceiving mother the Internment has gone off without a hitch for centuries and Baxter’s will do so as well.
If things were as simple as being buried alive and getting out, Baxter would have no worries at all. Things just aren’t that simple and here’s her list of worries: Declan wants something from Baxter that no one else has ever been able to accomplish, her mother hid not just her powers but an entire family and history from her, as a Time Bender, Baxter is assigned a Healer and hers happens to be way too cute for words and from a rival family, her power is highly coveted and, she is about to be buried alive. I really can’t get past that whole buried alive bit, can I? As you might well expect, the night of the Interment is anything but smooth and in fact, all hell breaks loose. Baxter’s powers are put to the ultimate test, her level of loyalty and trustworthiness is tested beyond reason and, she is forced to act in ways she never thought possible just to stay alive.
The Bottom Line: Holy cats what an intense and exciting read!! Though Interred starts out a bit slowly and does have some slow parts throughout, the action and plot are super intense and the slow moments sort of give everyone – characters and reader alike – a moment to breathe and regroup. There is a lot of information in this read and I often found myself feeling a bit like Baxter, completely overwhelmed by everything but willing to go with the flow. Baxter is the strength of this read and with everything she goes through and has thrown at her, it is often hard to remember that she is just sixteen. The magical world, the abilities of the magical beings and, the crazy twists and turns in the plot made this read not only fascinating but entirely enjoyable.
Baxter is turning sweet sixteen, except it's not so sweet. Baxter's mother has been hiding a few little details from her about who she really is, and when Frederick shows up from the England Magical Being Council, Baxter not too thrilled with Frederick when she learns who she is, or about the way the Council wants to celebrate the night of her birthday, to discover what magic ability she will receive. Baxter will also meet two boys; one she'll have to help release from a time loop, and the other she'll lose her heart to.
I love Baxter. She's a strong, feisty, sarcastic heroine. Baxter jumps right in to do what she has to do. Jack and Declan are also great. Jack is flirty with a cocky sense of humor, and no way is Baxter going to able to resist this gorgeous boy. Declan is gorgeous too, but has a colder, dark side and he's been trapped in a time loop for one hundred and twenty two years, and even though he's Jack's great uncle, Declan hasn't aged over seventeen. Both these guys have a connection with Baxter. But the question Baxter is asking herself is: which one can she trust?
Interred is a fantastic adventure of romance, magic and betrayal with Baxter, Declan and Jack. I also enjoyed that Interred is more of a mature young adult novel. I recommend Interred as a fun, magical read with a heartbreaking cliffhanger ending. Yep, I will be waiting on the second book in the Chronicles of the Interred series!
