About the Book

Maximilian's been nuts about lucha libre his whole life. But he's not just a nerdy middle schooler―three years ago, he discovered that he's part of lucha libre royalty! His uncle is the most famous luchador, the Guardian Angel. But now, the masked hero is facing a wild new wrestler who might just topple him from his lucha libre throne. The Fallen Angel may be the most reckless and arrogant wrestler the Guardian Angel has ever had to face, and he's no longer in his prime. Age affects everyone, even the man behind the celebrated mask. Max, being next in the royal line of luchadores, thinks he might have to take over as the Guardian Angel sooner than he'd ever dreamed!

Maximilian and the Curse of the Fallen Angel is the fourth in the "Max's Lucha Libre Adventures" series. Catch up on the adventures:

1—Maximilian and the Mystery of the Guardian Angel

2—Maximilian and the Bingo Rematch

3—Maximilian and the Lucha Libre Club

Maximilian ha sido fanático de la lucha libre desde chiquito. Pero es más que un fan—hace tres años descubrió que es parte de la realeza de la lucha libre. Su tío es el luchador más famoso, ¡el Ángel Guardián! Pero ahora, el héroe enmascarado tiene que enfrentar un nuevo luchador loco, y puede ser que el villano lo eche de su trono. El Ángel Caído es posiblemente el luchador más temerario y arrogante que el Ángel Guardián ha enfrentado, y ya no esta en la plenitud de la vida. La edad afecta a todos, incluyendo el hombre atrás de la macara tan celebrada. Max, siendo el siguiente en la línea real de luchadores, piensa que tal vez tendrá que ponerse la mascara del Ángel Guardián pronto, ¡pero apenas tiene catorce años!
