Graham Hancock’s War God tells the epic story of two clashing empires during the Spanish conquest of Mexico, where two gods of war and their ideologues, Cortes and Moctezuma, fight to the death for supremacy. Caught up in this collision are Tozi, a young Aztec witch, the beautiful courtesan Malinal whose hatred of Moctezuma runs so deep she will sell out her own land and people to destroy him, and the Spanish page Pepillo who serves a sadistic Dominican Inquisitor. In a land and an era dominated by human sacrifice, and the prophecy announcing the return of Quetcalcoatl, we see a culture at the height of its decadence, with personal loyalties pushed to the edge, and a brutal adherence to divine will.
Known for his alternative perspective and unorthodox examination of ancient cultures, Graham Hancock is the bestselling author of The Sign and the Seal, and Fingerprints of the Gods. At this event, as well as introducing his new novel War God, he will share exclusive advance information on some of the compelling new evidence he has gathered in support of the controversial thesis that first brought him worldwide fame — the thesis of a lost civilisation, technologically advanced but spiritually corrupt, that was destroyed in a global cataclysm at the end of the last Ice Age. With work well-advanced on a sequel to Fingerprints of the Gods to be published in 2015, and his exciting new historical novel just published, this will be a fascinating opportunity to meet such a unique thinker.
