trigger warnings: incest, self-harm, human sacrifice, violence


The first book of this series was hard to read - not because it wasn't good, quite on the contrary! - but because it dealt with issues that are culturally taboo to me, namely incest. It makes for an uncomfortable love story when it's between two siblings...

The thing is, it was one of those books that stay with you. I thought of it on and off between its release and this one's release. So you ca

Quetzalpetlatl and her brother Topiltzin are now King and Queen of Tollan, a city they have founded on which they could build their dreams and end human sacrifice. However, they soon find that the peace and prosperity they have hoped for is over. Smoking Mirror is back and wants to start a war with Quetzalcoatl. He turns his eye on Quetzalpetlatl and tries to convince her that Quetzalcoatl is not the just god he claims to be. Caught in the midst of a war between the gods, Quetzalpetlatl soon lea ...more

I got this free through Goodreads Giveaways. I should note that I didn't read the previous book, but I never felt lost while reading this one. I found this book to be excellent. It's based on stories of Mexico from the days before even the Mayans, which is a period I've read nothing about, but which I found very interesting here, presented very well. The writing style was very good, making the protagonist a very compelling character. Easy to relate to, because despite her intelligence, she's sti ...more

Wow. Like the first book, there really is not a dull moment in here. A lot happened, and like in the first book, so much changed from beginning to end. I felt that there was a great deal more character development in this one, which I had hoped for. I felt like I got to know Citlallotoc and Topiltzin very well, and I found the the villains incredibly interesting as well.

Occasionally I found Quetzalpetlatl a little bit frustrating. She distrusted characters I felt were being sincere, and she was

The Bone Flower Queen is an amazing follow-up to The Bone Flower Throne! As with the first book, when I had to put it down I was sad. Unfortunately, I was out of the country and not near internet, so my review has taken a while to get here. T.L. MorganfieldThe characters were well fleshed out in the first book and become even greater in this one. The tension between the hero & heroine is amazing and you cheer for them through the entire book despite their odd circumstances. Morganfield's mas ...more

Quetzalpetlatl and her brother Little Reed have defeated the sorcerer Smoking Mirror, and can now re-establish the worship of the Feathered Serpent Quetzalcoatl. But things aren't that simple--Smoking Mirror was not killed, merely temporarily set back, and he's now shifted his attacks to Quetzalpetlatl. Meanwhile, Little Reed and Quetzalcoatl both act elusive, keeping secrets from Quetzalpetlatl--secrets that kill...

This is a lovely continuation of the first volume--I really like the focus on T

I read this book for NetGalley.

Ms. Morganfield simultaneously entertains and educates the reader with this novel. I thoroughly reading her book and learned a lot about the Toltec civilization and religion.

Excellent characters (no one is perfect here, even the gods!), plotting and world setting. A wonderful introduction to Meso American history and culture. Ms. Morganfield has put her heart into this book and it shows. Great job, and I look forward to reading the concluding book in the trilogy.

Wow.

Without giving away anything, this book made me cry and laugh out loud. Ending was a cliffhanger and I am keeping this short because I have to buy the next in series. Fantastic. Long, quality read. Well worth the money. Written with love and passion.

The characters in this novel make it a sure bet. It is book two of the Bone Flower trilogy and every bit as good, if not better, than the first. It is action-packed and full of suspense from start to the , what I thought, was a surprise ending.

I highly recommend this book!!

One of the few sequels that really surpasses the first book. What a great story, riveting from beginning to end. I am now hoping there is a third book in the works!

T. L. Morganfield lives in Colorado with her husband and children. She's an alumna of the Clarion West Workshop and she graduated from Metropolitan State University with dual degrees in English and History. She reads and writes way too much about Aztec history and mythology, but it keeps her muse happy, which makes for a happy writer, so she has no plans of changing her ways.
