I received a copy of Chronicle of the Mound Builders by Elle Marie from CLP Blog Tours as part of the blog tour.
Chronicle of the Mound Builders by Elle Marie was able to grab my attention from the very beginning. I later found out that two stories were told in the book. The first one was about Dr. Angela Hunter who found the codex in the sealed jar, and the other one was about Chipahua and his son, Tototl, who escaped from his enemy after his wife and daughter was murdered before his eyes as part as their practise to sacrifice human for their god.
It was confusing at the beginning where the characters were introduced as there were many of them. It was hard for me to understand what was going on at first when the stories switched back and forth between Angela and Tototl. But after a while, I got used to it and began to enjoy the story a little bit more.
I liked Angela’s character. She was intelligent, dedicated and she had a good personality. I enjoyed reading the part where Angela was translating the codex. It was interesting to see the translating process from the pictograph. I get to learn a little bit about symbols and other thing like excavation.
Chronicle of the Mound Builders is a good read with a mix of history, mystery, fantasy and a little bit of humor. I would recommend anyone who enjoys archaeology stories.
