    1. The author seemed to have done research and authenticated that the main characters were real people and the basic facts and dates were accurate. She got bogged down in detailed sexual descriptions which I just skimmed past as they were not interesting; I thought I was reading a historical book. If the descriptions of the society (government, religious system, military system) and day to day life are accurate then it was informative. At the end she stated her goal had been to write a romantic tra [...]


    2. In the years before the conquest of Mexico the Aztecs are usually portrayed as a very blood thirsty people/Herb Allenger's well researched book does nothing to dispel that notion. Human sacrifice was a vital component of their religion. Ahuitzotle was the epitome of a warrior-king but he was often petty, vindictive,stubborn, and self-seeking. The two women who love him are interesting and the author takes a few historical references and weaves an interesting tale. Well written but I would have d [...]


    3. This was a free ebook from Book Bub via . I've found most free books of this type to be less than hoped for, but this one redeems itself with a well-crafted chronological chain of events. The author (or perhaps his spell-checker) is somewhat given to malapropisms but that is overridden by the pace of the tale. For me, at any rate, it gave me a much better understanding of the workings of the Aztec (Mexica) empire. There is a love interest, a love triangle or two, and lots of bloodshed, the latte [...]


    4. I really wanted to like this book since I had read "Aztec" and "Aztek Autumn" by Gary Jennings and really enjoyed reading novels set in this time and place. Although it might be a good story, I never really found out. I found the author's writing style difficult to read. Worse, this book had many grammatical errors, nonsensical additional words and obviously missing words. So many that I gave it up. I read only about the first 20%.For that reason only, I don't recommend this book.


    5. Another worldAuthor took me on a adventure, was like being I'm Aztec Mexico. Great readNot for the faint of heart




    6. I can't stand historical fiction that reads like moderns wearing others clothing. I kept expecting Ahuitzotl to get into a car and drive off. Not a bad book, just not my book
