Delightful and wonderful

I read this book for a book club, and if it hadn't been for that I wouldn't have finished it. It took about 2/3rds of the book for me to be invested at all. I did like the last hundred pages or so, but to get to the point was a bit of a slog. It did have some interesting ideas and concepts, and I liked the romance, but ultimately it was underwhelming.

Basically a at its heart a quest novel, borrowing from Mayan mythology. An interesting amalgam. A girl, Casiopeia, helps a Mayan death god whose place as king has been usurped by his brother, to regain various body parts and a necklace. She undergoes a race with her cousin, Martin, down the "Black Road" to the Underworld and the god's palace. A change from the familiar European mythologies. ( )

I adored this fresh, fast paced gem! A fairytale from the dark side, this story puts together an unlikely duo for a fantastical journey through Mayan Mythology. Set in 1920's Mexico, the multilayered story comes to life with enchanting characters and great dialogue. Some laugh out loud moments, a spark of romance and an underworld game of high stakes makes this book a great read. ( )
