Description

Sixteen year old Sofia Aguilar believed she was doing the right thing when she relocated three thousand miles to be with her dying mother (mae). Now her home is a remote, isolated village buried deep in the Amazon where nobody speaks English and where the weather is unbearable. To make things worse, Sofi's mae is too sick to remember her own daughter. Bored and depressed, Sofi desperately searches for something to take her mind off her situation. It isn't long before her aunt warns her of an ancient superstition that has dominated the Amazonians' imaginations for thousands of years. The locals call it the legend of the Encantados - river dolphins that transform into mystifyingly attractive young men and women. Encantados can control the weather, bend humans to their will, and even invade dreams. Instead of avoiding these enchanted monsters, Sofi seeks one out named Amancio, and strikes a deal with him. She will help him uncover his memories if he can find a cure for her mother. At first Amancio seems sincere in their bargain, but Sofi will soon learn that these shapeshifters are not at all what they seem. Sun Kissed is the first installment of the Encante Trilogy: a fresh blend of Brazilian mythology, suspense, and romance. Sofi's story will capture the souls of readers and submerge them in an exotic world that will leave them breathless and begging for more."show more
