Children of the Sun is an epic retelling of the Conquest of Mexico from the Aztec point of view, and a breath-taking story of courage and loyalty, treachery and deceit. Peopled with a huge cast of characters from the agonised Emperor himself and his headstrong daughter to the enigmatic conquistador Hernan Cortes, this is a richly imagined recreation of one of history’s most extraordinary civilisations and a heart-breaking lament for its fall.
