A good read. Hopefully there will be a sequel.
reader familiar with the culture will be immediately transported to the villages and
towns of the northern Yucatec Maya. As I read the descriptions of each character,
real faces of Maya men, women, boys and girls that I know appeared in my mind.
Subtle internal struggles that the Maya face between tradition, nationalism, and
progress were genuinely depicted with great care. Tangible mystery and suspense
propel the story forward, begging the reader to turn the next page, but it is within
the descriptive details that the novel gains a legitimate voice. Dialogue is superbly
mingled with internal thoughts and observations of the protagonists. Each page
reminded me of an event, person, place or controversy I've witnessed as a Maya
archaeologist in Yucatan. This ranks highly among my top five fictional novels to
accurately portray Maya life (and death) on the Yucatan peninsula.
