Vampires of El Norte

We rated this book:


Isabel Cañas returns after her debut novel, La Hacienda, with her next foray into her unique romantic horror style with Vampires of El Norte.

It is 1846 and the United States is invading Mexico. Near the ranch there is something that drains men of their blood at night. Nine years ago something bad happened between Nena and Néstor. Something attacked Nena, and Néstor thought her dead and fled. Now the two are brought together in this time of war.

Nena is now a healer, known as a curandera, looking to prove her worth and importance to her father. Néstor is part of the auxiliary cavalry of ranchers and vaqueros. Nena has never forgiven Néstor for what he did in abandoning her, but they will have to get over this if they are to survive the white vampires of the American force invading from the north, and the other vampires that attack at night.

Cañas has done it again with Vampires of El Norte in creating an original novel dealing with history and the plight of the Mexican people, and injection a delicious infusion of horror. While her writing style is a little tricky to get used to, the reader is soon taken on a journey they won’t soon forget.
