I agree with both of the first two recommendations regarding the second volume in this series of two books; first “The Beginning,” then following in sequence “The Quest.” These two related books should be read in that exact sequence, as they are integral to each other. I have just completed reading both. In many history books you get a dry read of historic facts, sometimes presented in a manner that makes history interesting or exciting. Here you have someone write a book like a history with a lot of historic facts, but with a “voice” (though partly fictional), with personality given to real characters in history.
I read both reviews after having read both volumes of the books. I also admit to thinking of James Michener, as the first reviewer mentioned, though with more researched historic fact presented page-after-page-after-page. It made me think I was reading a history with some fictional elements, rather than fiction, with some history interwoven.
I too found these books hard to put down. Though I am mainly an avid reader of non-fiction books (history, exploration and archaeology), covering the New World from the Bering Strait to Tierra del Fuego, plus the Bahamas and Caribbean, I personally loved the interweaving of the European and Papal historical events preceding and contemporary with the New World exploration and conquest events. This gives context to the hows, whys and impetus of exploration, from both directions—east to west and west to east—as well as elements of the known pre-Columbian (pre-contact) history of the Incas. My only criticism of these books is that they could have been edited tighter for spellings of some historical persons and locations, but these were only minor bumps in the road, and did not significantly lessen my enjoyment of both of them.

God, Glory and Gold contains both the story of Fernando and Isabela of Spain and their rise to power--AND the history of the Inca Empire's rise to supremacy. Finally it takes the reader through the clash of countries, cultures and conquistadors to the fall of the Inca Empire and the rise of Spanish colonial power. It is an epic work full of information and an exciting story.

More About the Author

My life was shaped by my parents who instilled in me a deep curiosity about history, politics and the motivations that drive people to excel as I grew up in an Eisenhower era, upwardly mobile, middle class family in the suburbs of Boston and Washington, DC.

A superb college education by the Jesuits and service in the US Army during the Vietnam Era gave me a sense of awe over the power of team work under strong leadership. My three years in law school honed my analytical skills and prepared my for a career for 7 years of law practice and 24 years in the personal investment management business.

I had the pleasure of helping successful people secure their future financially in a variety of sales and senior management positions. Numerous positions in volunteer, non-profit community service and politics allowed me the chance to follow my father's example of making a difference in society.

I have also been blessed with a perfect woman, Amy, as my wife and three wonderful children from a former marriage.
