Latest Amazon Review: THE BRUJO'S WAY. "This was a unique reading experience that I highly recommend. Armchair adventurers will delight in Don Carlos's exploits, and serious historians will be amazed at McFarland's ability to weave history into fiction. I think of myself as not being a fan of magical realism, yet THE BRUJO'S WAY, full of magic, full of realism, puts a new spin on this genre. In this sense, the novel is fabulously 'fabulist,' and I love the way the author blends allegory and history to create his protagonist's world. The historian in McFarland is evident and impressive, yet it is the storyteller in him--and Don Carlos's journey to self-hood--that we fall in love with."
