First of all, I want to say that I absolutely loved Teo and following his story. This take on fantasy, especially with a Mexican-inspired twist, is absolutely brilliant, and I couldn't put this book down. It was an interesting blend of traditional fantasy with modern technology, but Thomas seemed to blend the two worlds seamlessly. I was enthralled by the challenges. One of my favorite things, as a mythology geek, was seeing the different gods and goddesses and how they interacted/how they were crucial to the story. This story not only builds a strong world, but it deals with lots of very relevant issues such as body dysphoria and gender identity. I loved seeing how Thomas handled these topics as he wove the story together, and I think they were done splendedly. I really loved this novel, and it really did make me feel like I was reading a Percy Jackson novel thrown into the Hunger Games.
