Cemetery Boys is a LGBTQIA romantic adventure that draws readers into the story of a transgender brujo working to gain the acceptance of his conservative family and save his community from self-inflicted destruction at the same time. I can only hope that this magical world gets a sequel, so that we can follow Yadriel, Maritza, and Julian on even more adventures. I can't wait to read more of Adrian Thomas' work!
