When Casiopea Tun opens the black chest by her ailing grandfather's bed, she expects to find dust and not much else.

As they journey from Yucatan to Mexico City, the US and then Baja, Casiopea has to decide what she's willing to sacrifice and how much she really wants to escape her family and village. A thrilling, atmospheric fantasy, perfect for fans of Spinning Silver and American Gods.
