I don’t know how it made it to the best seller list, because it was boring, bloody, and a burden to read. Stephanie rated it it was ok Oct 12, Love him or hate him, but Mixtli “Dark Cloud” is a joy to get to know. I had this book for years, carted it around the world, but never could get beyond the first page. I read somewhere a small anecdote of a man who was rewarded for telling King Motecuzoma the truth.
Also the rest of the characters in this book are plenty colorful in and of themselves. How that society fell from jehnings is a fascinating story. Best of all, this person could be male or female.
I was shocked when I read it, but the story still is seared in my brain. I was right about that part, but had no idea what I was truly giving my mother.
Lora Jones rated it it was ok May 03, Yet, Jennings is able to offset some of our revulsion with reminders of contemporaneous and future Spanish religious atrocities: Sep 01, Nathan rated it really liked it Shelves: Well, two months later I can look back on this as a time travel trip well worth the effort. Splendour and sex and pageantry and violence and adventure and more sex and then maybe some more violence and quaint local customs; and either a stunning amount of historical research or a stunning amount of just making things up; or some combination thereof.
This book is not for the faint of heart, but it is simply the best single novel that I have ever read. He’s not a hero or even really an anti-hero A complete enigma to me; massive genius. Carlos Medina rated it it was ok Jan 09, Books by Gary Jennings. Its heart was the plaza of Tenochtitlan; its pulse was a cycle marked by the passage of the sun across the sky, the passage of months from spring planting to spring planting, the passage of 52 years in the cycle of life when the solar and divine calendars coincided, and with proper caution, ritual, humility and appeasement, the destruction of the world would once again be staved off and the new cycle of 52 years would begin.
Every such lady ends up worshiping his male member and indulging into all sorts of behaviors with him from regular incest to casual adultery. Its life was governed, however brutal or unfair, by codes of behavior and jennnings that promised stability and continuity.
Well that’s what he did with the Aztec culture. This book is a Historical Fiction masterpiece. I learned more about Aztec culture aztecw this book than I have in all my time of personal research on this subject.
Item Location see all Item Location. This book is completely brilliant. And the sex, well, it’s everywhere, all the time, and some of it is just way, jenninhs past the point of believability, veering toward impossibility.

Aug 06, Casey rated it it was amazing. It was kind of like that.
Jul 26, Austin Briggs rated it it was amazing. Some folks seem to expect a fast-moving plot from this book which is probably a “milieu” novel rather than an event-driven story.
That said, I cannot deny that the book was entertaining all the way ligro It becomes immediately evident that Mixtli is not your typical hero, but a man with deep personal flaws.

This brings me to the three grudges that I have with this novel. He is a good man for the job, for in his life, he has brushed shoulders with princes and kings, slaves and commoners, has worked as a scribe, a warrior, and a traveling merchant.
The Tlatoani king was like “yeah I can totally tear his heart out like a pro”, so he starts stabbing the dude in the chest and break the ribs, then slides the obsidian blade in an angle to make a bigger gap, then he tears the heart out.
