The 12 months is 3 Rabbit, and the typhoon is coming.

The Mexica Empire now has a brand new Emperor, yet his coronation battle has simply led to a failure: the armies have retreated with a paltry 40 prisoners of battle, now not close to sufficient sacrifices to meet the gods. Acatl, excessive Priest for the lifeless, has no wish to contain himself over again within the intrigues of the strong. even if, while one of many prisoners dies of a paranormal affliction, he has little selection yet to enquire. For it's only one demise, however it are usually not the last.

As the our bodies pile up and the imperial court docket tears itself aside, dragging Teomitl, Acatl's loved scholar, into the attention of the hurricane, the excessive Priest for the lifeless goes to need to decide upon whom he can manage to pay for to belief; and the place, finally, his loyalties eventually lie...

REVIEWS:

‘Like the former books, the 3rd within the Obsidian and Blood sequence abounds with suspects and crimson herrings. It’s a twisty and vibrant story full of unusual gods who call for sacrifices and ache for the least favour. I cherished the way in which Acatl is starting to query the best way issues are, and the 1st stirrings of doubt are awakening in him. He’s continually had misgivings approximately his personal suitability as excessive Priest, yet during this novel his eyes are opened to a few of the deeper wrongs performed within the identify of the empire, and within the identify of people’s dependable loyalty to the gods.’ —WarpCore SF

‘I stumbled on this to be the easiest ebook of a great sequence. an identical positives from the 1st books are nonetheless current, a truly easy-to-read writing type (easy to learn yet now not basic or dumbed down), a short speed, and a few significant international development, very good accessibility regardless of the lesser comprehend pantheon and names. even if the second one ebook handled a potential finish to the realm, grasp OF the home OF DARTS took the same destiny and did it larger. possibly this used to be simply because in lots of methods it felt extra like a delusion e-book than a secret publication, which lends itself larger to the “save the realm” sort tale. The magic felt extra natural the following, it was once by no means used as a crutch, or even it used to be simply greater defined. there has been a piece much less traveling this time round, which additionally ended in a tighter tale. The finishing concerned a number of confrontations that have been demanding and plausible, together with a few among those who are imagined to be allies… an outstanding finish to the series.’ —Fantasy overview Barn

‘Whether you're taking it as historic noir or as a hugely actual fable, it’s challenging to not benefit from the Obsidian and Blood books—it’s an ideal healthy for these searching for anything varied from their ordinary fare, yet nonetheless fascinating in methods they’re used to.’ —Guys Lit Wire

‘Acatl, is especially a lot on the center of the tale, extra so possibly than the plot. He slowly grows into his place because the excessive Priest of the lifeless in the course of the trilogy, whereas the writer strikes alongside a parallel direction, her narrative transforming into into its teller and inhabiting his brain with expanding convenience and self-assurance. Acatl is either the hero and the author’s avatar as she explores her principles of what a hero can and may be. Perceptive readers will locate Acatl to be a really assorted form of hero than we're conversant in analyzing approximately, however the motion and the secret continue so easily that a few could by no means realize the gleeful contrariness that lurks less than the skin… Acatl isn't really, and this can be obvious from a lot prior within the trilogy, a customary motion hero. he isn't even a standard secret solver, at the very least no longer within the Western idiom… everything of the Obsidian & Blood trilogy will get excessive marks… for creativity, execution, and mild subversion. not only advised, yet, to paraphrase Demi Moore in a couple of solid males, strenuously recommended.’ —Two Dudes in an Attic
