Where Monsters Lurk & Magic Hides
Lauren T. Davila, editor (anthology)

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

A weeping woman wanders the L.A. River, wailing for her lost son. A teen wants to find true love’s kiss for their quince but discovers so much more. The journey of the last ahuizotl through the Franklin Mountains. King Triton’s son finds a way to leave his tail behind to seek out the stars. Two girls become the keys to freeing long-trapped goddesses and their villages. Where Monsters Lurk & Magic Hides is an anthology of Latine/x genre fiction from both new and established young adult authors. The stories in this anthology span the genre categories of romance, sci-fi & fantasy, and gothic horror. They take place in this world, other worlds, or maybe somewhere in between. Most importantly, the characters on these pages are not stereotypical Latine characters. Rather, they are fleshed-out characters, embarking on amazing adventures, who are unabashedly Latine.
