Critic reviews

"Part 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)

Fantastic story telling

I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy, the story telling was amazing.
The way that Graham Hancock managed to perfectly blend history with fiction was absolutely awesome.
I got so attached to so many of the characters that I felt sad when I finished the third book.
These three books gave me a lot of knowledge about the history of that epoch in a way that I wouldn't have been able to just by reading into history books.
I also found myself googling a lot of the information and characters of the story, great stuff.
Thank you Graham for writing and publishing this trilogy and specially publishing it on Audible.
I must also applaud Barnaby Edwards for narrating this story so well, only a true professional can successfully perform so many different characters.
I most definitely recommend this trilogy.

Fantastically Engaging

Amazing narrative creates a sense of living through these historic events with fleshy characters reincarnated by Graham's unique style. Now, back to the start of book 1, I'm listening again!

poor volume

The rest of the series are excellent. I was looking forward to hearing this one. sadly the recording quality is terrible. really low volume in comparison to the other books in the series. impossible to listen to if the volume is barely audible?

Fantastic blend of history and the supernatural!

Loved every minute of this series. Hope Mr. Hancock continues to with it!
Barnaby Edwards gave a flawless performance as ever and is definitely one of the best narrators out there.

Fantastic series

This series is well written and well narrated. Graham Hancock writes about a period of history not usually given much attention. I can only hope there are more books to come

Love it! Another great book of Grahams.

The person reading the book could do a better job, not impressed by his performance. But the book itself is amazing.

Rushed ending

There seemed to be enough left for another chapter, but the ending was rushed and it was over before there was any resolution.

Fascinating and Addictive

I've really enjoyed the first three books in this series and can't wait for the fourth! Graham has hit the ball out of the park with this series, getting me hooked on the historical fiction genera.

Story within a parable.

There is a deeper truth here revealed in the history based narrative of this series. One which concerns the nature of perception and the exhausting wheel of ego driven history. It is no surprise that Graham conceived of this telling with insights gleemed from many Ayahuasca ceremonies.

A nice finally

Although this was my least favorite of the three, it was still an excellent book! This is a series I'll more than likely revisit and continue to recommend
