I don't know why I like this series so much... I don't know... But I LOVE them!!! This book was REALLY good, though I think it was shorter than I would have liked it... But I think it was like that so that it could leave room for the 3rd book in the series, which I CAN NOT wait to read!!!!! I really liked the characters in this book because they were very imperfect... Every single one of them was flawed... none were shown to be perfect... Loved the story line about the Mayas... All in all a wonderful book... (oh, and disregard the plot description... it is a lousy one, and if I had read it, I probably would not have read the book, so PLEASE don't base weather you are going to read it on it... )

The young seminarian, Julian Escobar, finds himself trapped in the role of the legendary Mayan god Kukulcan, a captive of his own power and of his duties as lord of a great city. His only ally, the sly dwarf Cantu, cares only for the gold that can be plundered from the Mayan temples. Even amid the barbaric splendor of his own court, Julian fears the treachery of the high priest. Julian's travels take him to the palace of Aztec emperor Moctezuma, and before long he is caught up in the tragic encounter of Moctezuma and Hernan Cortes.
