Feathered Serpent

The Mexican bestseller. A historical adventure thriller of the fall of the Aztecs.

Cortes and the Aztecs. 500 men against a million.

Yucatan, 1519: Consumed with ambition, Hernan Cortes sails from Cuba to explore the coast of the lands to the west. He takes prisoner a young Mayan princess, Malinali, whose father has been murdered by the Mexica on the orders of their emperor, Montezuma, and enlists her help to further his campaign.

Clever and fiercely independent, Malinali hungers for revenge. She seizes the chance to act as interpreter for the Spanish general and begins to weave a story so compelling and disturbing, it turns the odds in their favour.

As they journey to the heart of ancient Mexico to eventually conquer the Aztec nation, Cortes and Malinali carve out one of the most astonishing and tragic stories in history.

Cortes has his conquest and Malinali has her revenge – but neither of them could foresee the terrible cost for the country or for themselves.

Feathered Serpent stayed on the Mexican bestseller lists for four months. It was once published as Aztec.
