    375 stars This is a beautiful book but it’s a beauty that kept me at a distance The world and mythology is lush and the prose fits the story well but the feeling of reading a myth kept me from truly engaging with the story I loved our main character and rooted for her but truly never felt she was in danger and even though this isn’t a mythology I’m familiar with I still felt I knew the general beats the story would take This

    I'm not going to write a review of my own book but here's some common uestions I get1 Will there be a seuel? Short answer no It's intended as a stand alone 2 Is it really adult? Isn't it YA? Book classification is a funny thing Some reasons for having this out as an adult book have to do with the choices of my publisher but also my own feeling that the omniscient tell don't show bits of the novel would make it feel dista

N southern Mexico A life she can call her own Yet this new life seems as distant as the stars until the day she finds a curious wooden box in her grandfather’s room She opens it and accidentally frees the spirit of the Mayan god of death who reuests her help in recovering his throne from his treacherous brother Failure will mean Casiopea’s demi. 3755 Full review on my Blog The Dacian She Wolf I ve dreamed of travelling to Mexico since I ve first discovered telenovelas decades ago and if this book is the closest thing to that then so be itIt really felt like I was sitting at a wooden table listening to a Mexican grandma telling me a story of her childhood while wrapping up tamales It really felt that warmI liked it very much but I didn t love itMostly because I am weird But that s not allI somehow managed to have a tangled vision of the 1920s Mexico and all I can say is that aside for the time forgotten little town of Uukumil everything else was impressively modern Maybe I am being ignorant but I wasn t expecting that sort of constructionThis whole idea of a tour around Mexico was indeed very clever and I applaud it mostly because it actually made me go and search on the map all those places mentioned yes my ignorant arse strikes againEven with the whole travelling around the country I still felt like the action was a bit stiff It didn t really happen anything I wanted This wasn t that and it makes me sad to think of it I needed less blandness in the action for thisAlso at the beginning and still after a good chunk of the book I felt like I couldn t like any of the characters Exept for the main character Casiopea Tun who was the one that seemed a bit better than the rest She felt wrong and right at the same time and this is why I liked her from the start She was lonely and unlucky but brave and hopeful Dubiously interesting combination In her spare time she looked to books or the stars for company And interesting concept comes into the spotlight in this book and this is the awkward but cute friendship between Casiopea and this big bad god of death Hun Kam His vengeance on his twin brother who tricked him years ago Vucub Kam is what sets all things in motion in this book but Casiopea is the one that gives it the push Their whole journey tightens their relationship and turns it into a beautiful thing They come to love and trust each other a thing natural than the other And this is beautiful It was as if the land opened its lips and breathed again and was made anew I truly appreciated the fact that the whole thing wasn t revolving around the two main characters falling in love with each other Their love came natural following its course and being light and simple and sincere The coolest thing about this book however is the fact that it is based on actual Mayan mythology I know very little about Maya civilisation so this was purely interesting and educative for me Even though I wanted to encounter local traditions and maybe some Mayan day to day beliefs this was very well documented and it highlighted very well some of the most important myths of the Maya culture anchoring them in the mortal reality of the time Also the tiny glossary at the end of the book really sold it for meIt was a nice book And I truly recommend it to nearly clueless people like me who want to learn something new that might get fascinating or just desperately want a break from winter on a distant and warm land It s your call people but I m taking the initiative for you Read it Book styled Sir Alex Ritter ohne Furcht und Ahnung southern Mexico A
