This was a dated tale even in 1946, by Richard Shaver, the creator of the Shaver Mystery stories. I will give it props for being one of the first fantasy tales set in the Incan Empire that I've ever read, but it's has the style and verve of a story that would've been in vogue a decade earlier. Conversely, it's also one of the better written Shaver stories I've read, which might be the effect of legendary Ray Palmer's editing. It's worth reading if you like that era, and if you're a Shaver completist.
