Synopsis:

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.

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 Cortés. 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.

Yet, in the midst of the brutal and bloody battles, deep friendship and love survive through the massacres.

Tozi, a young girl, who has seen many deaths inflicted in many ingenious and horrible ways, uses her magical gifts to save those she loves.

Pepillo, a Spanish orphan who serves a sadistic Dominican friar, is taken under the wing of Cortés, and begins to learn what it takes to be a conquistador.

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

Praise for WAR GOD: Nights of the Witch

?Five hundred years ago the old Mexican prophecy which announced the return of Quetzalcoatl came true. In an era dominated by human sacrifices and the decadence of a great culture, bearded men, white-faced, from beyond the sea, arrived to impose their law. In this fast-moving, highly recommended novel, Graham Hancock masterfully reconstructs the biggest clash of civilizations ever, revealing aspects that only a genius author could unveil.?

Javier Sierra, New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Supper and The Lost Angel

?. . . 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.?

London Evening Standard

?The book offers up a heady mix of action, politics, spirituality and the supernatural . . . Convincing fantasy elements and viscerally recreated details keep the narrative charging forward.?

Daily Mail

?Interweaving historical fact and vivid fiction, Graham Hancock?s War God is packed full of blood, guts, conflict, sacrifice and witchcraft in the last days of the Aztec empire. The story of the Spanish conquest of Mexico and the downfall of Moctezuma is the perfect (if very gory) distraction from modern life.?

Wanderlust

?It will have you hyperventilating within minutes . . . Meets all the ?thriller? criteria with gusto.?

Newcastle Journal

?Graham Hancock has, once again, produced a book that entertains as well as educates . . . War God is a rich and deeply involving novel that grips you from the very first page. If you can handle the gruesome detail, then you will devour every page and the end will come too soon, leaving you desperate for book two . . .?
