The Emperor's Second Wife
Read April 12, 2013
The Emperor’s Second Wife by Zoe Saadia continues the exciting adventures and fast paced action of The Rise of the Aztecs Series. This historical novel dealing with the post classic period of Mesoamerican history in central Mexico will keep you glued to the pages and your heart racing with excitement.
It is very obvious the author has done her research and added her imagination to create this world of intrigue and suspense in the royal palace. More than either of the first two books of the series I felt she really puts the reader in the story.
As I read The Emperor’s Second Wife, I could hear the sounds and smell the smells of the capital city and palace. It really brought the story alive and made the characters all that much more real. Here attention to detail and historical accuracy is very evident in the story.
As in the previous book Zoe Saadia did an excellent job of developing the storyline. It continued to build on the previous books but took on its own story and adventure. I really enjoy the level of suspense and intrigue she created in the story.
I really enjoyed The Emperor’s Second Wife by Zoe Saadia and highly recommend this book and the first two volumes.
