9780312862510: Aztec Blood

The Aztec people have been conquered and a bloody revolt of the Indians put down. The former Aztec Empire is now a colony called New Spain in which the Indians are enslaved to great estates that are actually feudal domains. The Spanish lords rule as kings, treating Indian men as work animals and Indian women as their personal property. In this colourful and exciting era of swords and cloaks, upheaval and revolution, a young beggar boy, in whose blood runs that of both Spanish and Aztec royalty, must claim his birthright. From the torrid streets of the City of the Dead along the Veracruz Coast to the ageless glory of Seville in Old Spain, Cristo the Bastard connives, fights, and loves as he seeks the truthwithout knowing that he will be the founder of a proud new people. As we follow the loves and adventures of Cristo and experience the colorful splendor and barbarism of the era, a vanished culture is brought to life in all its magnificence.

From the Back Cover :

"Injustice has never been so keenly sketched, nor valor so compellingly portrayed as in this swashbuckling adventure."―Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

As we follow the loves and adventures of Cristo and experience the colorful splendor and barbarism of the era, a vanished culture is brought back to life in all its magnificence.

"Jennings can breathe life into the dust of history."―The Washington Post

"This exotic, sensuous novel works on many levels. It is at once history, mystery, and a coming-of-age novel all permeated by the teeming world of seventeenth century Mexico as seen through the eyes of a teenage boy."―Library Journal

"This lush exotic page-turner fairly crackles with intrigue, romance and adventure . . . The author has meticulously researched the tortuous history of the colonization of New Spain, revivifying the all-but-forgotten era upon whose brutal foundation the modern nation of Mexico was founded."--Booklist

"Highly entertaining."―Kirkus Reviews

About the Author :

Gary Jennings was known for the rigorous and intensive research behind his novels, which often included hazardous travel---exploring every corner of Mexico for his Aztec novels, retracing the numerous wanderings of Marco Polo for The Journeyers, joining nine different circuses for Spangle, and roaming the Balkans for Raptor. He passed away in 1999, leaving behind a rich legacy of historical fiction and outlines for new novels.
