The Aztec empire has, by the year 2012 (in the suppressed Gregorian calendar), conquered the whole world using God-provided high technology, and rules a bloody police state held together by torture and human sacrifice. One man is standing up to them, slaughtering priests at the most public of occasions, dressed in the armour of the old enemies of the Aztec Empire - the Conquistador.
This was an enjoyable read but perhaps the formula is getting a little stale now - the first three books all had distinct tones, but this one feels like a cross between the first two entries (Age of Zeus and Age of Ra). The lead characters are also rather stock - psychologically damaged ex-military/police. Lovegrove can still write some excellent action scenes, but nothing to match the power-armoured-grunts-vs-Gods battles of Zeus.
So fun, but maybe it's time for the author to take a break from this series and try something new.
The writing really took me to the world he generated and with the action, dark deeds which when backed with a wonderful sense of pace, it made it a title that pretty much didn't get anywhere other than the top of my TBR pile. Finally add to this, some wonderful author sleight of hand, characters that you could really get behind which when backed by his authors understanding of what the readers wants as well as needs and all in this was a title that didn't live to see the sunrise.
As a final year University Student I had not been able to get my teeth into many books that I actually wanted to read. This Book however was read in the space of a day. A page turner and another Brilliant book from Lovergrove.
I would recommend this book for those who love militry/scifi and alternate history.
Corker and just like the rest of his pantheon series does not let down.
Read this and read the rest of the stand alones!
I honestly didn't think that he would manage to top Age of Zeus... but hats off.. he did. Keep 'em coming!
