    Paperback ¹ New Fire eBook æ fire kindle, New Fire PDFInteresting book detailing life in the time of the Mexica told through the exploits of Jaguar More than a little confusing to start with because the characters are referred to by both their common name as well as their Mexica name There is no explanation within the text that when someone mentions Zatepanpahtli they are referring to the character previously introduced as Last Medicine Again reading on the kindle meant that I didn't k

    Paperback ¹ New Fire eBook æ fire kindle, New Fire PDFThis is not your easy breezy beach read This is an epic It is a valiant story simultaneously combining the friendship of two young men coming of age the age old saga of forbidden love the ancient struggle between church and state and the classic tale of honor and courage all of which come together in a rolling boil at the end This is not your average fast food hamburger; this is a seven course mealwith dessertand a bottle of wine Throughout the journey I found myself hoping the antagonist would

    Paperback ¹ New Fire eBook æ fire kindle, New Fire PDFThis is a well written fast paced adventure set in the time of the Aztecs The book is rich in detail about the people and the culture of the time and the carefully crafted plot is woven around both the political manoeuvrings of the religious elite and the lives of the ordinary individuals who get caught in the crossfire Central to all of it is the ritual of the New Fire the transition from the end of one calendar to the beginning of the next upon which the fate of world de

    Paperback ¹ New Fire eBook æ fire kindle, New Fire PDFNew Fire by Philip Dickinson is an amazing achievement in historical fiction about a time and a culture that is hugely neglected in history lessons in both Europe and America a rich culture before colonization Dickinson describes in rich detail the society of 15th century Mexico its tribal structure the power struggles between the clans and the priesthood the astrologers the rituals of human sacrifice the life of the warriors games and many aspects of the life of the people that will later become the AztecsThe story revolves around two young men and their friendship as it is caught up in tribal warfare honour and the preparations for the ceremony of the New Fire an impo

    Paperback ¹ New Fire eBook æ fire kindle, New Fire PDFThis is a work of well researched fiction but it does present life in the Mexica often called Aztec empire about 50 years before Cortez Several historical figures are woven into the narrative The author has an eye for details including the physical descriptions of characters clothing especially colorful garments made of feathers and the grandeur of buildings The natural world lakes plants weather is described in both sight and sound Every day life revolved around the many gods and the priests who presided over sacrifices and other rites Large scale human sacrifices were used to appease the gods and influence rain crops war etc It was a bloody era and individual life was cheapEarly in the book there are many names that are impossible to pronounce but the main characters are given English word names Jaguar Crocodile Precious Flower Two Sign Cloud Face Snake EyesNo sexViolence almost too graphic for my taste

    Paperback ¹ New Fire eBook æ fire kindle, New Fire PDFGreat book from this first time author no for long though with the second in the series being worked onThe world Dickinson created was completely believable and at times very visceral It was easy to smell and sense the world he was describing To feel the tension of the situations people found themselves in and the chaos of the fights many of the characters find themselves inI was impressed by how a I was able to be in a world that in truth I know little about Dickinson manages a difficult balance of remaining authentic yes the names are tricky while having a way of writing that lets you read on at an engaging paceVery much looking forward to the next in the serie

    Paperback ¹ New Fire eBook æ fire kindle, New Fire PDFThe author has painted a vivid picture of the brutal world of the emerging Aztec culture It is a period of history I haven't looked at since my schooldays so I cannot vouch for its accuracy but the story is compelling and the characters well drafted I was a little confused at times by the switching back and forwards between Nuatyl and English versions of the character names and an introductory map might have helped Also not convinced by the bookend stories concerning the children However if t

    Paperback ¹ New Fire eBook æ fire kindle, New Fire PDFThis is an accomplished first novel It gets off to rather a slow start perhaps because of the need to set the scene in 15th century Mexico but the political intrigue soon kicks in and makes for a compelling story Clearly the author must have done tons of research but the real st
