Time has never been an issue for Baxter Jacobs, but then she never knew she had the ability to Bend it.

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Baxter inherits a pendant that will change her life. Connected to the pendant is a dark and mysterious young man named Declan Ashdown. Trapped in a Time loop for the past 122 years, Declan needs Baxter’s help to escape. The only problem is, she has no idea how to do it.

To acquire the power she needs to free him, she’ll become one of the Interred, those whose Magical abilities emerge as they come of age. When she does, she’ll discover that Declan isn’t the only one interested in the fact that she’s a Time Bender.

As the Interment arrives, Baxter knows this will be no Sweet Sixteen. A vengeful relative and the ruthless Council are determined to control her. Declan’s powerful and charming descendant, Jack Ashdown, claims he can save her. She’ll soon have to decide who she can trust, and how to master her new abilities before Time runs out.

Author bio:

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.

It was this love that propelled her to choose Theater and French as majors in University, with a minor in English Victorian Literature. Lyn lived for almost a decade in England followed by three years in France before returning home to the States. A self-confessed citizen of the world, she is fluent in English, French and Spanish, with basic knowledge of the Italian language.

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 Doctor…as long as she can have Mr. Spock, Captain Kirk and Captain Mal as companions.
Lyn currently lives in Central Florida with her French husband, English-born eldest son, and French-born youngest son. Her debut YA Novel, Interred, was published by Iambe books on 01/22/2013.

Excerpt from Interred by Marilyn Almodóvar

The word that captures my attention is Interred. Buried. A shiver runs down my back. I have to open and close my mouth several times before I give up.
Mom reaches toward me, but her hand falls before she touches me. A heartbeat passes, though it feels like years.
Finally, I find my voice. “Interred?”
Mom presses her hands against her jeans. “The Interred…” She hesitates, then continues, “Every month, boys and girls who are turning sixteen come into their abilities. It usually happens a few days before. You start noticing things you didn’t notice before. You can do things you couldn’t do before.” She paces. “The ones with the potential for greatness are taken away to a ceremony that significantly tests their abilities. They’re Interred, cut off from family and friends so they can explore their abilities under the guidance of the Council.”
I’m waiting for the punch line. When that doesn’t get delivered, I search her face. “If you’re trying to freak me out, it’s working.”
I stare at the music box with apprehension. I hear my name being called over and over again as time ticks away. It’s a soft voice, definitely male and definitely the same voice I heard before. Without a doubt, I should be committed alongside my mother.
“I’m sorry.” Mom’s eyes well up as she closes the space between us. She takes my hands and gazes straight at me. “The Council and the Warriors think you inherited Archibald’s powers, which means the onyx will protect you.”
“Give me a break, Mom. My name isn’t Doctor Strange.”
“Baxter.” She cups my cheeks in her hands. In her eyes, I see tears which never fall. “You have got to trust me. I need to teach you all I know about Declan.”
“Who is Declan?”
“The boy in the stone.”
