If You Like Silvia Moreno-Garcia Books, You’ll Love…

Gods of Jade and Shadow is Moreno-Garcia’s fairytale rooted in Mexican mythology. The book takes place in the Jazz Age, but Casiopea Tun is not a part of it. She is too busy cleaning floors and only has time to dream of a life far away from where she is now. One day, she finds a myserious wooden box in her grandfather’s room and accidentally frees the spirit of the Mayan God of death. The God requests her help recovering his throne for his brother. Success could make her dreams come true, but failure could mean the end of her. She has no choice but to agree and her journey will take her from the jungles of Yucatán to the bright lights of Mexico City—and deep into the darkness of the Mayan underworld.

She is also the author of Signal to Noise which takes place in Mexico City in 1988. The book tells the story of Meche who leans to cast the spells of magic using music and it makes the future look bright for her and her friends. The book picks up two decades later when Meche returns home alone for her father’s funeral. It is there she runs into her old friend Sebastian which causes them to relive some memories of what really happened back in 88.
