it was ok
bookshelves: straight-up-novels
Read in August, 2002

Talk about a slow start...it took me a lot longer to finish this book than it should have, because I was reluctant to keep picking it up. Was it a sequel? Did I miss something? For all of Anaya's books you have to suspend your disbelief. The last half is very strong, characters included. The history is interesting, but I liked the spiritual parts the best.
I like the idea that people always dreamt lucidly until evil spirits jumbled our derams to weaken human powers of perception. This interests me because occasionally, everyone dreams vividly, and those dreams stand out, and we wonder why. It's as if sometimes, the right dreams break through the curse. Anyway, I give that premise more stars than I give the actual execution of the book.
