Some destinies are written in the stars. Others must be bought with blood…

The Zodia are real. Clawing their way from a long-forgotten tomb, they emerge, ravenous to claim everyone born under their star signs. Plotting to resurrect kingdoms no human knew existed, they are driven by a hunger for vengeance against the one who buried them: Aries.


Larken is a natural born sprinter, but even she can’t outrun the darkness closing in. A shelter-in-place order has been issued, causing widespread panic. Some brush the alarm off as a drill, until people begin to disappear… vanishing without a trace. Left with only one option, Larken’s brother does what he must to save her life… and calls forth Aries.

Considered a traitor by his own kind, only Aries has the power to stand against the Zodia. But he can’t do it alone. Mystically bonded to Larken, the pair must band together for the fight to come if either hope to make it out alive. Neither anticipated the passion that would ignite between them. Yet, in a world suddenly thrust into chaos, it may be the key to their survival.

The Zodia are out for blood with their attentions inexplicably focused on Larken. When long buried truths finally come to light, will their love be their salvation or their curse?

-Things That Should Stay Buried by Casey L. Bond

Casey L. Bond deliveries us a stunning unique experience with, Things That Should Stay Buried.

Bond creative story of an eighteen year Larken, a girl born two weeks after her fraternal twin. This book really begins days away from her graduation. Let’s look backwards a little, she was set to go to her senior prom with her boyfriend, but he dumped her a few short weeks before prom night to date another. Her brother’s past and his secret is something Larken has guarded closely. There is definitely something about him that is not your typical twin brother. Something happened to him when they were both younger, she has adjusted to his uniqueness and loves him dearly.

Everything you think you, you really don’t in this exceptional written book.

Bond uses mythology to invent a whole new amazing fiction. You will be on the edge of your seat, and completely invested into the vibrant characters as the storyline unfolds. The expansive world building was phenomenal. I have to say I really enjoyed this ingenious take on the zodiacs, and how the author imaginative characters are wrapped around the personalities of their own astrology. Also, there is romance and family loyalty that makes this a truly special tale.

You might need a tissue, there is tear jerker moments.

Wohoo this was spectacular book for me!

Hopefully I have spoiled to much of the plot. Take it from me, you are going to want read this clever read.

Casey Bond lives in West Virginia with her husband and their two beautiful daughters. She likes goats and yoga, but hasn’t tried goat yoga because the family goat is so big he might break her back. Seriously, he’s the size of a pony. Her favorite books are the ones that contain magical worlds and flawed characters she would want to hang out with. Most days of the week, she writes young adult fantasy books, letting her imaginary friends spill onto the blank page.
