With made up characters in real historical times keeping to fact on the big names places and vents but totally fabricating the characters But the cover implies that all the people were real and so does an internet search So I was wrong but I don t think that would have changed my opinion He seems to have done a great job The details of daily life are so very very detailed that it reads like a volume of history And that I fear is my problemHistorians love history and of course they want to cram in all the facts they can uncover Here s a couple of fact filled xamples walked among palaces of magnificent a couple of fact xamples They walked among palaces of magnificent and cedar with great rooms and courts covered by awnings of woven cloth The buildings were shining with lime and decorated with different kinds of stonework and paintings Countless multitudes of men women and children stood in the streets and on the rooftops or sat in canoes on the canals to see themAnd He walked through gardens with a myriad of red white and yellow flowers blooming trees and ponds of fresh water with an array of colorful fish There was an aviary with very from of bird he had ver seen in this land and Everything was built of stone and plastered including baths walkways and the large open rooms where Montezuma s ntertainers danced and sangI liked reading this and I m not saying the book is overloaded with detail for xample he didn t list Black Heart, Red Ruby every color and type of fish I was just about the right balance of description dialog action and reflection for my tastes but Ixpect some people will say it should have had detailBut my issue ishe writes like a historian Historians cultivate a certain degree of motional reserve between themselves and their subjects It s necessary I guess to keep things accurate but it left me cold I liked the people I understood their struggles but I didn t feel their strugglesSo maybe not a great story but definitely a great history I thought that Createspace produces Horrors onlyand this story will be made into a movie which will be directed by Roland Emmerich.

review Maya Lord

S now Mexico and were captured by the Mayan people The book s plot revolves around how ach deals with their captivity The story is told in the context of the slow but inexorable ncroachment of Spanish Conuistadors on Central AmericaRobbins obviously knows his subject and does a very good job of moving the tale forward at a good pace Having recently finished Oliver Potzsch s abysmal The Hangman s Daughter it was a joy to read a novel that kept me firmly rooted in time and placeAs I mentioned above the two main characters of the book adapt to their new reality in different ways Aguilar holds true to his identity as a Spaniard and a Christian he survives years of slavery by working hard survives years of slavery by working hard his faith in God and attempting to spread the Word to the Mayan s who much to his disbelief are as ually devoted to their gods as he is to hisGonzalo Guerrero on the other hand survives by assimilating and thriving in his new surroundings
this results in 
results in I really njoyed about the book the tug of war between Aguilar and Guerrero The former attempts to serve as the latter s conscience reminding Guerrero that he is giving his soul over to savages who practice human sacrifice to in the name of a devilish religion Guerrero though is a soldier and has served a long time in the New World He knows full well what the Spaniards have done to the indigenous peoples in the name of religionThe book is well written and the author tells his tale from the very personal viewpoints of Aguilar and Guerrero It s unfortunate that toward the Moreno end of the book we lose this perspective and the story becomes an overview of Cortez s conuest of Mexico I wish Robbins had made the book longer to fully flesh out these importantvents from the viewpoint of his two main charactersWhile Guerrero is obviously the book s chief protagonist I thought the passages describing Aguilar s struggle were Monsieur Pain effective Guerrero certainly does think about Spain and the life he left behind there but it seems he slips a little tooasi I assumed this was a novel. Inds himself cast away on an unknown shore in the New World A fierce tribe A Spark of Light: the fearless new novel from the Number One bestselling author enslaves him and the other Spaniards in his small party With little hope forscape this brilliant and pragmatic adventurer searches for a way to advance in a strange new culture Jeronimo lost in the shipwreck with Gonzalo this uncompromising priest.
