When the citizens of one Incan village had a prophecy of the destruction of their civilization by the invaders from Europe, they followed their religious leaders in a journey to an alternate world where they would be allowed to develop their own civilization. Generations later, a new conflict arises. Their city is unofficially dominated by the Cardinal, a corrupt but powerful member of the religious community, and Capac Raimi, a young and ambitious professional criminal who wants to make a living at his trade, and doesn’t expect to find himself in a battle with the Cardinal. A fascinating story that uses a unique setting and an excellent story line to develop the central conflict. This appears to be the first in a series.
