A madcap, slightly crazy adventure, which mixed South American mythology, Spaghetti Westerns and an Edwardian style journal!

Young writer, Valentine Lovelace, runs away to experience the Wild West, where she hopes to get inspiration for her first novel. She somehow ends up kidnapped and taken to a camp of desperadoes, who regularly scalp the local Indians as well as trading them with weapons and supplies. But the camp is being terrorised by a dragon, one that has been called up by a ancestor of the ancient Mayan Jaguar Priestess'.

I found the premise intriguing and liked the mix of mythologies, but somehow none of the characters really appealed to me ... even the Dragon turned out to be rather more repellent once it started talking to its victims. I did enjoy the story, in that it is perfectly off-beat, quirky and definitely unique ... the whole idea of the bread cow was brilliant!

However, not one to read if a bit squeamish over animal's dying - there's a lot of that going on!!

I received this as the winner of the 2021 Global Sweeps - Round 7. While fantasy is not generally my genre, this looks intriguing and funny, and like a quick read. I'll definitely add it to my TBR pile. Thank you!
