Don Juan de Zavala is the most skilled fighter in all of New Spain - as gifted with weapons and horses as he is with women. These pleasures are all he desires. But the magnificent Aztec empire, its grand cities and riches, lies broken under the Spanish boot...And valiant men and fearless women now rise and battle their brutal overlords in an Aztec revolt. Across the ocean in Spain, courageous people battle Napoleon's invading armies. No one, including Juan de Zavala, can stay neutral. Especially when a shocking secret from Zavala's lurid past is exposed - a secret so lethal to the Spanish Crown it threatens their very existence. Zavala is swept from glittering Mexico City to snake and croc infested jungles, from lost Mayan civilizations to the torture chambers of the Inquisitions, from beautiful Barcelona and the bloody carnage of napoleon's war in Spain, to the bloodiest and most spectacular of colonial Mexico's revolutions.
