Overview

Comparada por la crítica con El nombre de la rosa, esta deslumbrante novela histórica de suspenso relata sucesos ocurridos en trece días de 1546 en los Altos de Guatemala. Para fray Sebastián de Guareña son días comunes y corrientes. Para los mayas son los últimos de su calendario, un tiempo de inquietud y tensión. ¿El Señor Cerros y Valles concederá un nuevo ciclo? Los adivinos y sacerdotes-jaguares han sido perseguidos por los nuevos gobernantes, esos violentos hombres blancos que rechazan la idolatría. Sin embargo, órdenes superiores han dado permiso para la representación de La danza del tambor, justo cuando se espera la visita de un embajador de Carlos V. El proyecto evangelizador de Bartolomé de las Casas está en peligro. Y Cecilia, una hermosa joven mestiza -hija del sanguinario Pedro de Alvarado y una princesa maya- sabe mucho más de lo que dicen sus perturbadores ojos verdes. Las víctimas van apareciendo. El dios está enojado con el pueblo de Rabinal. Un solo ritmo puede calmar su ímpetu: el sonido del hule en la madera; el golpe sordo y el toque de la trompeta. Pero fray Sebastián ignora que otro hecho terrible debe ocurrir durante La danza del tambor.
