#6 The Uxim, Guardians of the Lost White City

| November 14, 2011 | 1 Comment

They say when the full moon reflects on the waters of Rio Platano (Plantain River) in Honduras during certain times of the year, you can see a mysterious glow through the trees of the deep rainforest. Some local fisherman claim that in the areas where the glow is most intense they can sometimes see mysterious shadows move over the tree tops and some even claim to have heard songs of ancient times. Amongst the locals it is believed that to chase the glowing lights in the waters and the forests is to become lost, and that all who are lost will find refuge in an eternal white city but there is no coming back.



#5 Jane and Bá Huraqan, “Papi said knock you out.”

“Nice teeth.. maybe ya should pick them up.. keep them.. remember who knocked that crooked smile off of your face.”

Jane Fortin’s father didn’t leave behind much for her after he kicked the proverbial bucket, some outstanding debts and boxes of trinkets; but his old boxing gloves did still have magic in them. So the people used to say, and, turns out they were right, even if they didn’t know just how right. These babies house a one of a kind Mayan Punch-Genie, which only the wearer of the gloves can see and hear.. what’s a girl to do? Yeah, it might not grant her wishes, but you are definitely going to wish you hadn’t crossed her. Now Jane is going to the top of the fighting world.. one punch at a time.. and it’s next stop: the good life, time to leave the hustle behind… or is it? .. See, once you’re on the top of the food chain, the whole world wants a piece of you. So watch your back Ms. Fortin, hopefully you’ll be alright. Just remember what your papi said…
