Publisher's Summary

The year is Two House and the Mexica Empire teeters on the brink of destruction, lying vulnerable to the flesh-eating star-demons – and to the return of their creator, a malevolent goddess only held in check by the Protector God’s power. The council is convening to choose a new emperor, but when a councilman is found dead, only Acatl, High Priest of the Dead, can solve the mystery. When he hears rumours of a sinister cabal of sorcerors he must face up to demons, not all of them his own.

Critic Reviews

"Aliette de Bodard has done it again. Harbinger of the Storm is an action packed Aztec mystery opera with magic, interventions from the gods and more twists and turns than the first book." (Cybermage)
"Bodard’s writing is polished and striking, as she convincingly fills in the colorful elements of the Aztec culture - even if those colors tend to be of blood and bile as well as flowers and hummingbirds… beautiful, grimy, breathtaking, and morbid." (Examiner)

Good sequel, but a little hard to follow

This second book in the series is good, just a little harder to follow than the first one was.

Another refreshing visit to an alien mythos

Aliette has crafted another excellent tale within the Aztec mythos. Bloody, bloody gods.
