Part murder mystery, part well-researched historical novel and part fantasy. The fantasy element blends neatly with the other parts. 4 stars. --SFX Magazine

But action does not fall behind static description and again Aztec Gods walks among us.
Blood is everywhere to be seen and smell.
To read it is to dive into a strange world but yet in its disturbing manner, familiar (thanks to the talent, of course, of Mrs. de Bodard).
If you like Fantasy and Crime in a unfamiliar environment, do not hesitate.

Bodard involves the reader in three main characters: Acatl, our high priest PI, his sister, and an heir to the throne with his own agenda. Like many superior mysteries or fantasies (in this case both), Bodard uses a highly involving plot to reveal larger human and societal issues. It's a book that's not only involving while reading, but interesting to ponder after one is finished.
Aliette handles writing the foreign culture very well, painting it in realistic and practical colors of a world that they actual live in rather than one that we should gawk at. The ideas are brilliant and the research solid.
If you loved her first two books, you'll love this one.
Man, I want another....
