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.
