The novel also does not shy from depictions of ritual human sacrifice. Where it falters is when he’s a grown man, or a growing man if I may say. Having fought in a war, and having travelled widely across several continents, Jennings weaves his insights into human behaviors into the intricate plot that takes us to all the corners of the world known to his characters. This book is completely brilliant.

I guess the point that I’m trying to make here is that a great function this book performed for me was helping me eliminate more of my own xenophobia for the Aztec people. What did that was the way it picked you up with these hopeful moments of sex and love and just the pure love for the culture that was quickly spoiled by some of a most depressing and outrageous acts of violence.
