Join Mariquita, Mhairie, and Sam for a discussion about Isabel Cañas’s genre-defying new release, Vampires of El Norte. Cañas’s work seamlessly blends the chilling elements of horror, the tender allure of romance, and the rich tapestry of historical fiction into a single captivating narrative. In this episode, our hosts take a deep dive into this literary gem, exploring its multifaceted nature and its ability to transcend traditional genres.
But that’s not all! The conversation extends beyond the book’s pages as they explore the backdrop of 1840s Mexico. Discover the historical and sociopolitical climate that provide a compelling backdrop to Cañas’s storytelling and compliments her background in history.
