Overview

Written between June 5th and September 3rd, 1891, H. Rider Haggard's 16th novel out of an eventual 58, "Montezuma's Daughter," was ultimately published in October 1893. The previous winter, Haggard and his wife Louisa had been in Mexico hunting for treasure, and on February 8th, the author had learned of the death of his 9-year-old son "Jock" back in England. The grieving father wrote "Montezuma's Daughter" as what his biographer D.S. Higgins calls a "therapeutic act," and, following and preceding two of the author's greatest works--1892's "Nada the Lily" and 1894's "The People of the Mist"--demonstrates that the author, despite his bereavement, was then at the very top of his game.

Fast paced, a true page-turner. A little hard to read because it was written in old style long sentences. A heart melting love story, an idealized love it is the one Otomie gives Thomas. Anyone who loves so wholly and deeply will relate to this woman's passion. Though, no indication is shown as of how did Otomie fall so madly in love with a stranger, there was no story to lead to that, and that is a minus. There is a lot to learn of the Aztec's rituals and practices, and of the end of its last monarch, Montezuma. If you enjoyed this book, also see the movie Apocalypse with Mel Gibson, and read Colin Falconer's Aztec - or the Feathered serpent, same book with different title.
