Join us for the engaging book discussion with author Edward Rickford as he discusses his latest book “The Serpent and the Eagle”.

Great fortunes draw the worst suitors…

Tenochtitlan, 1519. Motecuhzoma, leader of the Mexica Confederacy, rules over the largest domain in all of Mesoamerica and has every expectation that his nation will continue to reign supreme… but the arrival of strange foreigners will test that confidence.

Driven by God, gold, and glory, the uncouth interlopers are led by Hernando Cortes and command weapons that can shake the sky. Their disruptive presence demands a response, but Motecuhzoma knows better than to rush into war and sends out envoys to discover more. The information they return with is nothing short of shocking, and a decision is thrust upon Motecuhzoma that could elevate his nation to new heights or cause its utter ruin.

Combining the political intrigue of Hillary Mantel’s Wolf Hall Series with the gripping battles of Conn Iggulden’s Conqueror Series, this award-winning novel draws upon modern scholarship to recount an event still unique today: the epic collision of two civilizations separated for millennia.
