Amazon Editorial Review
The extraordinary story of the last and greatest native civilization of North America. It is a story told in the words of one of the most robust and memorable characters in modern fiction. His name is Mixtli-Dark Cloud. Rising above his lowly station, Mixtli's insatiable thirst for challenge and far horizons reveals the very heart of Aztec civilization from the feather-banner splendor of the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan to the arrival of Hernan Cortes and his conquistadores, and their destruction of the Aztec empire. A story of the Aztecs - a compelling, epic tale of heroic dignity and a colossal civilization's rise and fall. Los Angeles Times: "Anyone who reads, anyone who still lusts for adventure or that book you can't put down, will glory in Aztec." New York Times: "A dazzling and hypnotic historical novel." Gary Jennings was known for his intensive research, which often included rigorous and sometimes hazardous travel. He explored every corner of Mexico for his Aztec novels. He passed away in 1999.
