“Cuauhtémoc” Released: A Thought-Provoking Piece of Historical Fiction

August 10, 2020 — Cuauhtémoc: Descending Eagle, a 16th-century historical fiction authored by D L Davies, has been released. The book explores Mayan civilization in a tale not of what was, but what could have been if certain mistakes had not been made. Those interested in learning lessons from history will appreciate the thought-provoking first book of the “Cuauhtémoc” four-book series.

The entire “Cuauhtémoc” series shares the journey of the main character, Cuauhtémoc. In the first book, readers learn of his birth in the land of Maya and his journey of attending birdman-school, where he learns to become a birdman and carry messages. The account of his childhood continues to unwind with tales of his fights with pirate raiders as well as some of his own people. The book concludes on a cliffhanger with Cuauhtémoc being sent to the City of Emperors. The second book in the series, “Cuauhtémoc: Descent of the Sun Priest,” continues the story.

“‘Cuauhtémoc: Descending Eagle‘ is an enchanting and thought-provoking book, and I think readers will find the examination of past mistakes in Ancient Mexico to be a powerful lesson for future events,” explained Mike Ramos, General Manager of the Publicity Department of The Moving Words.
