Summary

If you're looking for a captivating collection of Aztec myths, then pay attention....

The Aztecs believed offerings of human blood and human lives were necessary to the continued running of the universe. Indeed, in Aztec myths, the gods themselves make sacrifices of their own blood and even of their entire bodies in order to create a universe humans can live in and, in one story, to create humans themselves; humans therefore must make blood sacrifices in turn to feed the gods and to keep the universe in existence. 

To the ancient Aztecs, these practices seemed fitting, necessary, and honorable, helping to connect the world of humans to the divine world of the gods, a universe that in Aztec myth took shape in cycles of creation, destruction, and rebirth.

Aztec Mythology: Captivating Aztec Myths of Gods, Goddesses, and Legendary Creatures invites you to go on a startling journey to discover stories such as:

  • The legend of the suns
  • The feeds of Mixcoatl
  • The origin of maize and the creation of pulque
  • The fall of Xochiquetzal
  • The fate of souls
  • Huitzilopochtli and the founding of Tenochtitlan
  • Huemac plays the ball game
  • And many more!

So, if you want a captivating collection of Aztec myths, listen to this audiobook now!

Stories are great

Always loved Aztec Mythology. The man who narrates is great.he’s all over it. it gets a little deeper into the connections between authors and stories that I had known previously. The wording is a bit difficult at first but gets easier.

A beautiful audiobook

yet it still has enough great content that it is worth your time. At the end, there is the website available to look further and expand upon the stories even more. Very fine.

Heroes, Gods, and Monsters of the Greek Myths offer easy-to-follow, easy-to-understand stories about the great Aztec myths.

Really well done!

I looked for a basic Aztec mythology book for what seems like forever now because I was holding out for a book with really good illustrations and I found that in this book. The stories are short and to the point without feeling rushed and the stories are in order.

Compelling insights.

There’s much more to the Aztec history than I thought I know. This audiobook is what it is supposed to be-a brief but concise intro to the said history.

I found this to be an engaging one.

Not my all-time favorite, but found it an engaging one. In fact, I’ve listened to this in one sitting as Aztec’s culture amazed me right from the beginning.
