Magicians cursed by their gift to a solitary and painful existence have never been than a footnote in history But Rook driven by desperation has a plan to shatter the natural law that prevents hexes from cooperation and change the face of the world a plan sealed by an unholy marriage oath with the goddess Ixchel mother of all hanged men To accomplish this he must raise her bloodthirsty pantheon from its collective grave throu This was a bit of a tough one Wildly inventive beautifully written but sometimes a bit hard to follow and suffering from an acute case of the too many awesomes itis I mean I love gunslingers and magical woo woo and Mayan death gods and corrupted preachers and historical au's and gay romance and apocalyptic westerns as much as the NEXT girl but maybe there's just a little bit too much going on here for one book? Seriously I think that the ideas and concepts stuffed into this book could have been comfortably spread over at least 4 different novels And when you factor in a timeline that flops back and forth willy nilly and prose that freuently veers into the purple you end up with well a tension headache to be honest I had to stop in the middle and read something light and frivolous before I could come back and finish itWith all that being said I DID finish it and I will most likely go on to read the next book in the series after a break The author has an undeniable gift for inventiveness and originality and really lovely prose at times And I just really dig her overall aesthetic I'm going to keep an eye out for this author in the future because she has oodles of talent that could be honed to a lovely edge Just dialed back a little Or a lot
