Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for "Servant of the Underworld" - the first in the series:

"An Aztec priest of the dead tries to solve a murder mystery, and finds that politics may be even more powerful than magic. A vivid portrayal of an interesting culture in a truly fresh fantasy novel."
- Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling co-author of The Winds of Dune

"A gripping mystery steeped in blood and ancient Aztec magic. I was enthralled."
- Sean Williams

"The world-building is exquisite and we *believe* we are transported to the 15th century Tenotichtlan and together with the superb voice they formed the main reason I enjoyed this book so much... Highly recommended... Ms. de Bodard is a writer to watch."
- Fantasy Book Critic
