I love historical fiction and haven't read anything set in this time period before so I was looking forward to this book. However, I wasn't able to finish it.

Extremely raw and gritty descriptions of rites. This book is based on the Spanish conquest of Mexico which was ruled by the Aztecs.There are three story lines.The author did a great job with showing the other side of history.
Solid book.Extensive research.
Thankyou Netgalley for this ARC

It is an emotionally intense work, and the reader is easily and sympathetically drawn t
