Publisher's Summary

A young girl called Tozi stands at the bottom of a pyramid, waiting to be led to the top where her heart will be cut out....

Pepillo, a Spanish orphan who serves a sadistic Dominican friar, is aboard the Spanish fleet as it sails towards Mexico.... This is the epic story of the clash of two empires, two armies and two gods of war.

Five hundred desperate adventurers are about to pit themselves against the most brutal armies of the ancient Americas, armies hundreds of thousands strong. This is a war of gods and men.

Dark powers that work behind the scenes of history show their hand as the prophecy of the return of Quetzalcoatl is fulfilled with the arrival of Cortes. The Aztec ruler Moctezuma fights to maintain the demands of the war god Huitzilopochtli for human sacrifice. The Spanish Inquisition is planning an even greater blood-letting.

Caught up in the headlong collision between two gods of war are Tozi, Pepillo and the beautiful sex slave Malinal whose hatred of Moctezuma runs so deep she will sell out her own land and people to destroy him.

What the Critics Say

"[P]art historical fact, part fantasy, the effect is as intense as the events themselves. It's a fascinating read that will have you booking a flight to Mexico long before you finish the book." (Evening Standard)

    "Beyond historical fiction, a great book."

    Graham Hancock dives into history with a flurish of a master writer and historians careful eye for detail; while blending it all in colorful, rich and violent world of conquest.

    "Living History"

    Never has the discovery and exploration of the "New World" been so vibrant and alive.
    What a satisfying treaty of a history that was to me, until now, lost in a quagmire of gray all too boring mist.
    Well done Mr Hancock!
    Thank You.

    "Graham tells some great stories."

    History and fantasy clash in a very entertaining way. I will be waiting anxiously for the third book of this trilogy.

    "Absolutely incredible."

    This book had me from the start. Really enjoyed the flow of the book bouncing around from story to story. it really painted an interesting pucture of the Spanish Reconquista. and the crazy part is that most of it is true. Obviously excluding the supernatural aspect of the novel.
    All in all I loved it, and Im just glad they made an audiobook of this finally!!!

    Story
    "Pre-Hispanic Dickens?"
    What disappointed you about Nights of the Witch?

    The reader uses English class accents to distinguish the characters. it's jarring. Why is the protagonist speaking in a cockney accent? it's set in pre-hispanic Mexico!


    How could the performance have been better?

    A straight reading or non British accent would have helped.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Nights of the Witch?

    I'm not sure Moctezuma had the glee in taking human sacrifices as described in the book. A lot of this is up for debate and some suggest that the sacrifices were grossly exaggerated to justify the horrible looting and violence of the Spanish themselves.


    Any additional comments?

    I really was looking forward to this but I can't continue. It's too frustrating.
