AT ROAD'S END by Zoe Saadia_Review

At Road's End (Pre-Aztec series, #1)At Road's End by Zoe Saadia

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“At Road’s End” is a detailed yet readable and heartfelt historical novel of the land that became early Mexico and the eventual American Southwest, land of the Anasazi, Aztecs, and Toltecs. A routine trading trip, guided by a disgraced warrior for the protection of the merchants and their trading goods, discovers a cliff village ransacked and burnt, the villagers murdered. Only one survivor remains, a young married woman who had the luck and good sense to hide out. She tells the warrior of her people, who live in Great Houses against the Cliffside, and whose spiritual beliefs he cannot understand. Her tribe, of course, were those history came to know as the disappeared Anasazi.

Readers will find themselves turning pages, engrossed with the story line. One needn’t be an aficionado of historical fiction to enjoy this novel, but simply a person who loves good reading.
