About the Author

Born in Buena Vista, Va., Gary Jennings worked as an account executive in advertising and as managing editor of Dude and Gent magazines before becoming a full time writer. His early works were written for young adults, but he has since become well known as a writer of extensively researched, epic mostrar mais historical fiction. Jennings immerses himself in the culture of the period and locale to gain the background for his novels. Before writing Aztec (1980), Jennings lived in Mexico for 12 years and studied the Nahuatl language. The popularity of this novel resulted in the sequel, Aztec Autumn (1997). To give depth and flavor to his novel, The Journeyer (1984), Jennings followed a route to China, sometimes traveling by camel or elephant, in the manner of Marco Polo.

Dit is het verhaal van Mixtli de Azteken en van de laatste en grootste beschaving die ontstond in dat deel van de planeet dat de Azteken de Ene Wereld noemden.Mixtli werd arm en nederig geboren en klom de sociale ladder op, eerst een schrijver en daarna een krijger . Verzamel een buitengewoon fortuin met handel en verken het Noord-Amerikaanse continent en bereik zelfs de meest afgelegen gebieden. Aan zijn zijde zijn we getuige van de barbaarse bloedbaden en de glorie van de Flower Wars, de pracht van de veren vlaggen die over Tecnochtìtlan wapperen, de trotse waardigheid van de mensen van de Wolken. Uit zijn stem leren we perverse verhalen over bloed en passie tot aan de komst van Hernán Cortés. Legende, geschiedenis, mysterie en mythe zijn met elkaar verweven in dit boek dat tien, honderd, duizend romans bevat.… (mais)

I completed 30% of the book and at least 50% of that has to do with sexual exploits...on and on ad nauseam. Sex wasn't just mentioned briefly, but entire chapters of explicit detail. Sigh.....I read 240 pages and I'm done! DNF

En su vejez, Marco Polo fue apodado `Marco Millones`, porque en Venecia todo el mundo creía que la historia de sus viajes era una sarta de innumerables mentiras. A punto de morir un sacerdote le ofreció la última oportunidad para reconocer sus embustes pero, según dicen, Marco Polo contesto: `No he contado ni la mitad de lo que vi y de lo que hice`.
Aquí se narran algunas de sus hazañas y embustes.

La novela cuenta la historia de Tenamaxtli, un orgulloso joven indígena que se niega a doblegarse ante los invasores extranjeros y empieza a reclutar clandestinamente un ejército de insurrectos de entre los supervivientes de su pueblo. En su arriesgada empresa, se topará con grandes aventuras, mujeres apasionadas, aliados inverosímiles, esperanzas, ilusiones y amargas tragedias.
