The 52nd
Dela, author

Children/Young Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

Not one of the sacrifices chosen over the long history had survived--until now. On the tip of the Yucatan peninsula, the immortal Castillo family gathers in Tulum. Weary and haunted, they receive the names of fifty-two human sacrifices chosen once every fifty-two years for the Underworld, a tradition thought to have disappeared with the fall of the Aztec and Mayan empires. Driving home one night, college freshman Zara Moss swerves to avoid hitting a ghastly figure in the road. Lucas Castillo witnesses the car crash, but when it comes time to supervise her abduction from the wreckage, he intervenes. Something is different about Zara: Lucas has been having dreams of her arrival for five hundred years. As Lucas and Zara come together to put an end to the bloody sacrifices, they discover that the ancient tradition isn't so easily broken. The gods are angry, and they have until the Winter Solstice to drag Zara to the Underworld.

Once I picked up The 52nd I could not put it down. I wanted to know what was going to happen and how everything was going to play out. Dela did an amazing job with the characters and bringing them to life. The whole time I was rutting for both Lucas and Zara.
Lucas was such a strong hero. His family was a big of this story also. They really tied in everything that was happening. You learn about his history and what he and his family are. I don’t want to give away too much on Lucas and his family. Their story is pretty interesting and very well thought out.
Zara was also a strong character. She never gave up even with everything that was happening. Her life was pretty much turned upside down and changed. She never gave up though. I like that she never really whined about what was happening. She went along with it and took everything as it came.
There were times in the book that I was at the edge of my seat. I love when authors write such great books that are able to keep me going. This one defiantly had my attention the whole time. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure and history with their romance. I can’t wait to read more of Dela’s books. The 52nd is defiantly going on my reread list.
