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. i enjoyed this a lot than i thought i would im really into reading stories inspired by mythology that im not very familiar with and recently ive had an interest in mesoamerican culture so this did not disappointi found this to be extremely easy to read the writing is very straightforward and has of a telling rather than showing feel to me but i honestly didnt mind it its also a long journey narrative with not a whole lot happening other than subtle character development again i know this will bother some readers but i was okay with itso i know its my adoration for the subject which kept me so invested i really enjoyed reading about mexico in the 1920s learning about the different mayan gods and experiencing the underworld of xiabalba it was all really fun 35 stars
