Michael Sedano of La Bloga says "There’s lots of reasons to be eager, I’ll focus on three: Death Song of the Dragón Chicxulub is a rare Chicanocentric fantasy novel. Death Song does some teaching. Chickxulub brings lots of fun." Death Song of the Dragón Chicxulub by R. Ch. Garcia is a New Adult book. As Sentinel of a pre-Hispanic legacy, Tomás Chaneco has trained warriors to defeat the mysterious, eons-old creature, La Muerte Blanca. But never has the chosen one been a too-young americano. To complete his duties, the shaman-storyteller Tomás must challenge and upset Miguel's entire worldview, with methods as powerful as Otherworld magic, and guide the young man in transforming himself into a fit Slayer.
Reminiscent of Zorba and The Teachings of Don Juan, more than just "ethnic fiction" aimed at that audience, nor simply genre fantasy, Death Song of the Dragón Chicxulub owes its birth to paths open by Rudy Anaya and will give readers a whirlwind of a "dragon fantasy."
