The wait is finally over! The Bone Flower Goddess, the final book in the Bone Flower Trilogy, is out today.
Death is her gift.
Discovering the truth about her forgotten past sets Quetzalpetlatl—former Queen of Tollan and High Priestess of Quetzalcoatl—on a new journey, to rebuild her life from the ashes of the Feathered Serpent’s deception. Her top priority is to rescue her son from the underworld, but the Lord of the Dead will only resurrect him in exchange for the most powerful of the gods: Quetzalcoatl himself.
For such a dangerous mission, Quetzalpetlatl needs help. She finds allies among the gods, but the only one willing—and powerful enough—to take on the Feathered Serpent is the one god who’s responsible for so much of her personal pain these last thirty-five years. The Smoking Mirror holds the key to everything she’s ever longed for…if she’s willing to give him the one thing he’s sought for countless bundles of year.
But with Tollan’s throne and the future of the Tolteca empire at stake, is the price one that humanity can afford to pay?
And, with the trilogy now complete, an omnibus edition is also available, at a discount to buying all three books separately.
Who is Quetzalpetlatl?
In Mesoamerican lore, she is mentioned only as the woman the gods used to bring down the legendary priest-king Topiltzin-Quetzalcoatl—Mexico’s King Arthur.
But now her story is told at last.
Born the only legitimate daughter of the king of Culhuacan in the Valley of Mexico, Quetzalpetlatl was destined to be the obedient wife of the future king. But when her mother becomes pregnant with the god Quetzalcoatl’s son, Topiltzin, she’s thrust into the middle of a war among the gods, played out on earth through the humans who worship them.
Faith leads her to become the High Priestess of Quetzalcoatl, but ambition wins back her stolen throne, and, together with Topiltzin, she founds the legendary city of Tollan and ends human sacrifice.
But that is only the beginning of her journey—one that started eons ago in a walled garden guarded by dark magic, and was set in motion by the mysterious beckoning whisper of a stranger from beyond the stone walls….
And, as if that wasn’t enough, The Bone Flower Throne is now free, free, free!
Gods, Blood, Magic
A darkness has taken control of Culhuacan, one of the Toltec’s most powerful kingdoms. The bloodthirsty sorcerer god Smoking Mirror has sent her patron god—the benevolent Feathered Serpent–into exile, but the Feathered Serpent is determined not only to regain his sacred city, but also to end human sacrifice all together.
Princess Quetzalpetlatl barely escaped Culhuacan with her life, but when the Feathered Serpent tasks her with helping his mortal son Topiltzin fulfill his divine mandate, she eagerly embraces her destiny. Finally she can avenge her father’s murder at the hands of the Smoking Mirror’s high priest, and return home.
Yet the price for involving herself in a war among the gods is high, paid in blood and loss. But for Topiltzin—who’s more than just a brother to her—she’s willing to do anything. Even sacrifice her own heart.
