Max's uncle is stepping down from being the most famous luchador in the world! Will Max get to be the newest wrestler under the legendary mask?

It’s the end of an era! Max’s uncle —legendary luchador, the Guardian Angel— is getting married and walking away from wrestling! Max was set on taking over the wrestling role, but not so soon. He’s just fourteen! To make it worse, his uncle chose a wild new wrestler for his last match, the Fallen Angel. If the villain wins, will the legend of the Guardian Angel die before Max is ready to put on the mask?

¡Es el fin de una era! El tío de Max —el legendario luchador, El Ángel Guardian— se va a casar, ¡y retirarse de la lucha libre! Max quería ser la siguiente persona a asumir el papel del héroe enmascarado, pero no tan pronto. ¡Solo tiene catorce años! Y para colmo, su tío escogió un nuevo luchador temerario para su ultima pelea, el Ángel Caído. Si gana el villano, ¿morirá la leyenda del Ángel Guardian antes de que Max esté listo para ponerse la mascara?

  1. Kirkus Reviews
    Garza shows a new mastery of his characters—all Mexican—and fictional world in this latest installment. Apart from Max’s continued growth, each character shines, no matter how small an appearance they may make. In the end, what readers get is an assured, joyous story full of lucha libre antics and poignant familial bonding…Max’s finest adventure thus far.

  2. The Horn Book
    This fourth series entry is another entertainingly pulpy, action-packed Lucha Libre–themed tale…Juicy subplots worthy of the best telenovelas are related with Tex-Mex linguistic flare, keeping the pace fast and the twists fresh. —Lettycia Terrones
