Water for Blood (set in the Twisting world).
Mara’s father filled life with energy and excitement until his untimely death in an airplane crash. Without him, everything turned dull and hopeless as she helped her mother keep afloat despite crushing debts.
Then her father’s estranged father materialized on her doorstep. On her eighteenth birthday, he made her an offer she couldn’t refuse: enough money to pay for college and clear some of her mother’s debts.
But first, spend the summer with him on a desperate search for the Spanish conquistador who, centuries earlier, had stolen the fountain of youth.
Moving and powerful, Water for Blood features compelling, complex characters confronting the secrets in their blood.
