Had a man like Mixtli been in charge, perhaps Spanish would not have been the language of Mexico today.
The main character Mixtli is so deep and his perceptions of things around him are so engrossing. What he accomplished during his lifetime (if he were not fictionalized) would be greater than anyone in history.
I have read The Journeyer and Raptor (both phenomenal in their own right) also by Mr. Jennings and see alot of recurring themes. His main character is a wanderer that meets all the great people of the era and experience all of life's pleasures and horrors from human sacrifice to incest to homosexuality. Most of these topics can make us cringe but Mr. Jennings has a way of making these things sound provacative and compelling.
His descriptions of events seem to always consist of just the right number of words.
