Overview

What are the Red Balls that cross the Sierra Gorda sky, in Querétaro, from immemorial times and even until our days? In 1974, the author of "The Circle of Gods" saw one of these Tzinzimimes, as they are also called, when he was traveling along the region. Motivated by this experience he decided to thoroughly know this old mystery that has survived through the centuries and to find an explanation for it. This first novel has resulted from his investigations, carried out along several years and that have culminated in what she calls "fiction-history", an amalgam of historical and archaeological data, prehispanic mythology and popular legends, real and imaginary characters, and facts and possible situations; all of it in order to decipher, starting from a concrete enigma, our most remote origins. Pedro Raygadas, the main character, is hurt in a battle and rescued by the Pames Indians. The relationship that grows with a young indigenous princess unchains a series of vicissitudes and adventures through which the mystery begins to arise: the existence of strange vestiges, possibly extraterrestrial, hidden in caves and abandoned mines. ¿Qué son las Bolas Rojas que cruzan el cielo de la Sierra Gorda, en Querétaro, desde tiempos inmemoriales e incluso hasta nuestros días? La autora de Los Círculos de los Dioses vio una de estas Tzinzimimes, como también las llaman, en 1974, cuando viajaba por la región. Motivada por dicha experiencia decidió conocer a fondo este antiguo misterio que ha sobrevivido a través de los siglos y encontrar su explicación. Justamente esta primera novela es resultado de sus investigaciones realizadas a lo largo de varios años y que han culminado en lo que ella llama "historia-ficción", una amalgama de datos históricos y arqueológicos, mitología prehispánica y leyendas populares, personajes reales e imaginarios y hechos y situaciones posibles.
