Toltec Khan, Book One
Convert Fergus mac Ogma, a youthful Irish acolyte of the god Tezcatlipoca, has a burning desire and will to become more than a native underling in a land controlled by the invaders from across the ocean. But Tezcatlipoca altars are scarlet from the living sacrafice of his Christian countrymen and the time is coming when his own blood might be demanded to seal his choice.
Captain Mixcoatl is settling in with his wife as commander of the Toltec fort at St Albans in the province of England. When the governor strips the province of troops to invade the Continent he’s left with a skeleton force to hold the colony against the opportunistic invasion of the Scots.
Rowena, the young Saxon girl, is fleeing England with her uncle the monk and attempting to reach the Continent across the Channel. Thwarted, her uncle dead, Rowena finds herself a slave in Mixcoatl’s household. But when she’s taken by Normans supporting the Scots she’ll have to decide where her loyalties lay.
In the uneasy aftermath of the Toltec conquest of Ireland and England, three lives gradually become entwined. Facing a new invasion of an already conquered land, they are forced to confront the truth of where their loyalties lie.
Toltec Khan and Toltec Noon will be coming soon!
