If you like a book that stretches your imagination, stimulates your intellect and gives you an insight into the human heart - this is the book for you. Can't wait for the next one!
One of the tricks of the novelist is to make you care about the characters but here both priest and explorers left me cold, hovering as they did halfway between believable and fantasy, yet achieving neither.
If you spent your gap year in Peru and don't mind an iffy plot, then go for it. Otherwise, there are better things out there.
