Ann Dávila Cardinal is a novelist and Director of Recruitment for Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA) where she also earned her MFA in Writing. She is author of Five Midnights (Tor Teen), a novel based on the el Cuco myth set against the backdrop of modern-day Puerto Rico. Five friends cursed. Five deadly fates. Five nights of retribución. If Lupe Dávila and Javier Utierre can survive each other’s company, together they can solve a series of grisly murders sweeping though Puerto Rico. But the clues lead them out of the real world and into the realm of myths and legends. And if they want to catch the killer, they’ll have to step into the shadows to see what’s lurking there―murderer, or monster? Juliana Baggott calls Five Midnights, “A frightening, fast-paced thriller.”
