It’s November 1519, and Cortés has invaded Moctezoma’s empire, part of the Triple Alliance that rules one of the most advanced civilizations in history.
In this story, Moctezoma orders his henchmen to kidnap a girl named Flower from her family and imprison her so she can learn to impersonate a warrior goddess and, unbeknown to her, ultimately be sacrificed to the God of War. Moctezoma becomes obsessed with the beautiful Flower and is torn between keeping her as a concubine or offering her to the God of War. But now Cortés nears Tenochtitlan, the Mexican capital, and Moctezoma commands Flower be brought to him so he can perform the cold-blooded ritual sacrifice.
