საინტერესო ისტორიული წიგნია. მაგრამ უფრო პატარა ასაკში რომ წამეკითხა უფრო მომეწონებოდა. (13-15) ( )

This is a rip-roaring slice of Haggard action and drama set in the 16th century at the time of Cortes's conquest of the Aztecs. Thomas Wingfield is an Englishman with a Spanish mother. She is killed by a Spaniard, De Garcia, and Thomas spends twenty years avenging her death, which brings him to Mexico where he joins the Aztecs against their common Spanish enemy, despite his revulsion at their practices of human sacrifice. He marries the eponymous Princess, betraying his vows to his sweetheart Lily back in England. He witnesses and fights against the Spanish Conquista, finally kills De Garcia, suffers the death of his wife and children, and returns to England and marries Lily who has waited for him. Full of cliches by modern standards of course, but a gripping read with many dramatic and even horrific scenes. Splendid stuff. 5/5 ( )

An excellent action-adventure book rich with South American history. Edge of your sit reader that keeps you up all night. ( )
