Drought has taken a terrible toll on the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan, but worse is still to come. It is the final days of the sacred calendar and the New Fire must be lit, to appease the gods and keep an apocalypse at bay. Meanwhile, war and dark politics are at work. The high priest hatches a devious plot to undermine Tlacaelel, the ruler's brother, and break the stranglehold of the burgeoning secular state. One young warrior is caught up in the high priest's conspiracy and has to stay alive long enough to rescue a friend and unmask the traitor.
