André Santana narrates this exhilarating audio inspired by Mexican mythology and folklore. Impulsive Teo, the half-human son of the Bird Goddess Quetzal, anticipates boredom during the once-a-decade Sunbearer Trials that restore the protective powers of Sol. When he and a lesser semidiós are chosen to compete, Teo will have to use all his wits to defend their lives. Santana nimbly captures Teo's cheerful nature and his frustration with the divisions between the children of greater and lesser gods. Listeners will be captivated by the detailed descriptions of the cities within Reino del Sol and the fantastical beings who inhabit them. Santana keeps the tension in his narration taut as Teo wrestles with both physical challenges and his own feelings of inferiority. N.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
