The storyline continues the tale of our heroes as their life and times are rapidly changing. It builds on the foundation already established in the first three novels and flows seamlessly as the adventure continues.
The intrigue and adventure that fill the characters' lives will keep you on the edge of your seat. From plots and schemes of the royal court to the lives of the families you will want more. I could not put this book down.
It is obvious from the detail and accuracy of the historical data that the author did her research and stayed true to the history of this great civilization.
I love the way Zoe Saadia has developed each of the main characters into strong adults. She has instilled each of her characters with their own unique personality which is easy to identify with and follow.
I really enjoyed reading Currents of War by Zoe Saadia and I highly recommend it to all readers.
[Please note: I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.]
I have recommended Zoe Saadia's books/series to many friends. You will be spell-bound.
Coyotl has arrived in Texcoco, disheartened at the city’s downturn but determined to reclaim his birthright, knowing it won’t be a quick or easy task.
Iztac Ayotl, no longer a young, impressionable girl, is observant and perceptive, able to wield some power as the first wife to the young Emperor, Chimalpopoca. She is torn between her feelings for Kuini, her first love, and Chimal, who she has been close to since he was a boy. Nevertheless, she and Kuini would always share a bond, no matter what the circumstances.
Kuini and Dehe are settled together with a family, even though Dehe is aware she was never Kuini’s first choice. Nevertheless, she would do anything for him and is steadfast in her commitment. Kuini does love her in his own way, but at the same his feelings for Iztac are still strong. Kuini is still as loyal, independent and headstrong as ever, getting into dangerous situations, yet being a family man shows another, softer side to his character.
Familiar characters, multi dimensional and developed, merge with new, as they are embroiled in the never-ending struggle for power. I particularly enjoyed the addition of the old warlord’s third wife, Cuicalt. She and Iztac have a lot in common. Tlacaelel, who was introduced in the previous book, is now acting Chief Warlord in Tenochtitlan. He and Kuini have a mutual respect and liking for each other regardless of their differing personalities. Tlacaelel is ruled by his head whereas Kuini goes with his emotions, even if his impulsiveness lands him in trouble more often than not.
I love the relationship that develops between Iztac and Dehe, after a distressing part of the storyline. Zoe Saadia brings her characters to life with seeming effortlessness, and as always, the historical content is incredible, combining perfectly with the story. This is a fabulous series and highly recommended if historical fact/fiction is your thing. Fall of the Empire next!
