Gary Jennings' exciting sequel to his best selling Aztec, vividly recreates a forgotten chapter of history. One generation after his people were brutally conquered and forced into subordination by the Spaniards, a proud young Aztec named Tenamáxtli courageously refuses to bow to his foreign rulers.

Along the way he finds high adventure, passionate women, unlikely allies, and moments of genuine hope and bitter tragedy.

This is a sad follow-up to Aztec. The story feels jammed together, gets stuck on things that do not add to the story.
All of this could have been disguised by a good reader which this story does not have. In fact, I think the reading could be used as an example of "101 Things Reader Should Not Do".
James Olmos or. Jimmy Smits would have been great choices but then my Aunt Tillie would have been better.
Sad. Sadder still because I wasted money on the darn thing.

Not very captivating

The story, although extremely elinghtining of mexico's people and mexico's history, lacks the ability to captivate the readers attention for a very long time. very predictable. The un-abridged version probably better.
