Aztec

A novel by

 
'His work takes the reader through a never-ending labyrinth of twists and turns. Get this book. It is a magnificent piece of work!'
- History and Women

History tells us that Cortes conquered the millions of the Aztec nation with an army of just 500 men - but what about the woman at his side?

Malinali was his translator, the only one who could speak to the Spanish and the Aztecs, the only one who really knew what was being negotiated, promised or whispered.

She was also Cortes' lover.

Did she love him? And if she did, did she betray her own nation, condemn millions to death, for the man she loved?

The daughter of a prophet and the child slave of Spanish adventurer Hernan Cortes, the life of the Aztec princess Malinali is one of the most enduring legends of Mexico.

Her role in history divides opinion even today. Reviled by some as a traitor responsible for the destruction of the Indians, worshiped by others as a heroine and symbolic mother of the nation.

The legendary Aztec civilization is here brought to life in blazing colour, as the author traces the story of the enigmatic Malinali who held for a moment the future of an entire country in her hands.

It is a story of impossible odds, unimaginable cruelty, extraordinary courage and craven betrayal. It is also one of the most extraordinary love stories of history.

AZTEC spent four months on the best seller lists in Mexico.
