In the tenth century, Prince Quetzalcoatl leads the Toltec nation in an unprecedented period of artistic and spiritual excellence. Opposed by his half-brother Tezcatlipoca, the prince is overthrown. He regroups the Toltec nation at the pyramids of Teotihuacan, with the help of his female companion and his spiritual guide.
The prince is also joined by a force of 100,000 Mexican warriors led by his maternal grandfather, Cloud Serpent. Together they march to Tula, the Toltec capital, to confront the usurpers.
Before the prince can seek his ultimate vision quest and view his people's future, the final showdown must take place for control of the Toltec nation. How this battle ends is totally unexpected, but has become legendary to the Mexican people.
Author John Osmond is a stone sculptor who has spent 30 years working with the stone carvers of Mexico. He was motivated to write The Serpent King by his 'love for and involvement with the myth and legend of these people.' Originally from New South Wales, Australia, Osmond now lives near Mexico City. His next book is set in modern times and considers the mythology of Quetzalcoatl.
