GODS DO NOT DIE. THEY JUST SLEEP.
I stretched my arm as far as I could, but the strap remained beyond my reach. Just a little farther. My fingers began tingling deep inside. Suddenly the ground rumbled and I looked around, my calm forgotten. Was it an earthquake?

Having defeated the sorcerer god Smoking Mirror and reclaimed her throne, Quetzalpetlatl and her brother Topiltzin set out to found Quetzalcoatl’s new holy city and end human sacrifice throughout the Toltec world.
