Once little more than party fuel, for years tequila in the U.S. market was dominated by a crude hybrid, aptly called “mixto,” but of late, it has graduated to the status of fine sipping spirit. Now growth in sales of real tequila, made from 100 percent agave, is outpacing that of the cheap stuff by some threefold. But…
Inais Montia has always considered himself a good man, a man of true faith. So when he sets out to save the heathen clans from their graven idolatry, he believes he is casting light about the dark. And how could he fail with right and the truth of gods on his side?
Yet in the remote heart of nature, he encounters spirits both seductive and perilous, and finds that it is he who needs saving. The lessons they offer teach him about love and hate, but they are not without price: Inais must make choices which will change him for eternity.
Does the divine or the damned await?
