Aztec Revenge (Aztec)

Aztec Revenge (Aztec) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fascinating history of Mexico that began in the #1 New York Times bestselling novel Aztec continues . . . .

Don Juan de Zavala was the most skilled fighter in all of New Spain—as gifted with weapons and horses as he was with women. These pleasures were all he desired.

But the magnificent Aztec empire, its grand cities and riches lay broken under the Spanish boot…. Now valiant men and fearless women rise and battle their brutal overlords.

As a warrior-priest leads an Aztec revolt, across the ocean in Spain courageous people battle Napoleons invading armies.

No one, including Juan de Zavala could stay neutral. Especially if a shocking secret from Zavalas lurid past is exposed—a secret so lethal to the Spanish Crown it threatens their very existence. Zavala will be swept from glittering Mexico City to snake-and-croc infested jungles, to lost Mayan civilizations to the torture chambers of the Inquisition, to beautiful Barcelona and the bloody carnage of Napoleons war in Spain, to the bloodiest and most spectacular of New Spains (colonial Mexico) revolutions.

Everybody wants Don Juan de Zavala…and many people want him dead:

Isabella… Instinctively wicked, sinfully seductive.

Father Hidalgo… Can a man of God take up the sword and lead a people by the hundreds of thousands into a bloody revolution he cannot control?

Raquel… Attractive, sensuous, erudite, she challenges Juan with her mind—and her body.

Marina… A gorgeous pure-blood Aztec, she knows too well the oppressors rape and pillage of her people.

Synopsis:

Juan is a “mestizo,” of mixed Spanish and Indio heritage, sure to be doomed to a short, violent life begging on the streets. But Juan has a special gift for handling horses and an ability to defend himself at a time when a mans best friends are his horse and his sword. Only El Mestizo, the half-caste son of the conqueror Cortés, knows that the blood of kings flows in the young beggar.

After killing a man for beating a horse, Juan becomes a highwayman and horse thief before disguising himself as a wealthy caballero. He is wined and dined by the richest and most powerful people in the colony—who dont realize that some of them had once stared down the barrel of Juans pistola as he took their gold.

Fighting, conniving, and loving in a colorful era of flashing swords and brave hearts, Juan must use all the tricks he learned as a beggar and a bandit to unlock the secret of his own heritage.
