    Honestly, this book just straight up paints the worse possible picture about La Santisma Muerte. Its like if someone wrote a book about Christianity but only included all the burning, torturing, raping, mutilating, and enslaving of people that has been done in the name of Christ. That book would be a far cry from what Christianity can be. Even if it is a part of its history. This book does put someone things about Santa Muerte into context but otherwise, the language is completely biased, the au Honestly, this book just straight up paints the worse possible picture about La Santisma Muerte. Its like if someone wrote a book about Christianity but only included all the burning, torturing, raping, mutilating, and enslaving of people that has been done in the name of Christ. That book would be a far cry from what Christianity can be. Even if it is a part of its history. This book does put someone things about Santa Muerte into context but otherwise, the language is completely biased, the author has an obvious agenda, and by word choice, he very well may be a bit of a bigot. Plus, the actual product itself is flimsy, ugly looking, and the text is so tiny its kinda of annoying. Save your money and find another book on Santa Muerte to read, such as Chesnut's "Devoted to Death" or "La Biblia de la Santa Muerte" sold by Skullduggery Emporium.

    Don't waste your time This book is a hateful and bigoted portrayal of Santa Muerte. It's a complete piece of Crap. Definitely disgusting there was nothing fair and balanced about this book Don't waste your time This book is a hateful and bigoted portrayal of Santa Muerte. It's a complete piece of Crap.

    Ok...no new information This simply recapped the easily accessible information already out there on the subject. It was not as informative as I had hoped.

    Great read and very informative. Loved it. Quite interesting and well researched. I am most curious about this subject and the author has done a good job of pulling the history together well.
