    One thought on “The Bone Flower Throne”

    1. arc provided by Panverse Publishing LLC through netgalleytrigger warnings: self-harm, rape, incest, violenceQuetzalpetlatl is the king's only legitimate daughter - his queen having become barren giving birth to their daughter. In need of a male heir, the king and his brother decide to marry their children, Quetzalpetlatl and Black Otter, while they are still children. But the feathered serpent god Quetzalcoatl visits the queen in a dream and tells her that, if she'll swallow a jade pebble, she'l [...]

    2. I haven't been moved to write a review in a while. Before I start, in full disclosure, I met Tl Morganfield on a historical fantasy panel at a convention two weeks ago and was so intrigued by what she had to say that I had to check out her novel, THE BONE FLOWER THRONE. We have no arrangement to write reciprocal reviews for each other, nor have I accepted any remuneration for this review, etc. This is just me telling you what I think of a newly released novel in my favorite genre: historical fan [...]

    3. The story is a retelling of the the legend of Topiltzin, who is a mythical hero in Mexican culture. The story is told from Topiltzin’s half-sister, Quetzalpetlatl, an exiled princess and strives to become high priestess of Quetzalcoatl. She is chosen by the god Quetzalcoatl to be Topiltzin’s guardian for the promise that Topiltzin will be the greatest and most benevolent king of all the Tolteca. She and Topiltzin both embark on a quest to regain Topiltzin’s stolen throne and to secure a fu [...]

    4. Recibí este ARC (Advance Reader Copy) como regalo gracias a First Reads. Le pongo entre 3 y 3.5 estrellas.Me sorprendió favorablemente y es mucho mas interesante de lo que me había parecido al ver la reseña. Es una historia de aventura que involucra elementos de culturas prehispánicas y leyendas que me son familiares, por lo que fue extraño para mi leerlas en inglés y con un filtro cultural completamente distinto. A lo largo del libro hay comentarios como tamale head que se me hicieron g [...]

    5. That being said, the novel does delivers a story arc with a good climax. It is a story full of love, loss and sacrifice, not short on action, and rich with historical detail. I felt that here and there the author was pulling the characters' strings a bit too obviously but that doesn't take away from the fact that The Bone Flower Throne is a fascinating mix of history and legend, exploring a culture that most readers won't come across too often. It's a book that deserves a larger audience than it [...]

    6. See my review of this book, and many more, at Tales from the Great East Road.Princess Quetzalpetlatl knows that being part of the royal family of Culhuacan and honouring their god The Feathered Serpent requires sacrifice. At only seven years old she is made to marry her cousin Black Otter, who will become the next King as Quetzalpetlatl’s mother can no longer have children. It could be worse – Black Otter is a good friend, and soon she will live with the priests to learn how better to serve [...]

    7. I found this ARC in Read Now section on NetGalley.The book is divided in four parts. Most of the following is in the blurb so there aren't any spoilers here. Now, before you start reading this book you have to bear two things in mind. Here brothers marry their sisters. There is no way around this except to try to forget the fact while reading as I tried, all for the sake of the story. Second, the society is ruled by men and women are only good if they can give birth and 'know their place'.As far [...]

    8. First, the legalese: I'm a street team member for Panverse Publishing, which means I get the ebook free in return for an honest review. So far that's working out beautifully!Miz Morganfield (hope she doesn't take umbrage at the Miz) is a solid story teller. I had to start the book a couple of times due to outside circumstances, but when I finally got into the rhythm the book took off. Fair warning: unless you're a student of Toltec/Aztec culture, don't try to pronounce the names without some typ [...]

    9. I received an ARC of The Bone Flower Throne by T. I. Morganfield. Several disclaimers are needed. I generally do not read in this genre. I know little about the culture and period that are the story's setting. That said, I can appreciate the skill the author demonstrated in presenting this culture. If you don't have problems with violence, gore, and incest (culturally accepted) you may find the stories themes intriguing. Faith, responsibility, acceptance, women's roles, and love are all explored [...]

    10. This first novel in the trilogy introduces the young girl Quetzalpetlatl, a princess in Tenth Century Mexico. She is called by the Feathered Serpent to work against Smoking Mirrors and change the way her people worship. She is a pawn in more games than just between the gods. Her Uncle worships Smoking Mirrors and she is married to her cousin before her father learns of his brother’s forbidden worship. There is a revolution and she must flee to a neighbouring city for refuge. She grows up in th [...]

    11. My review is here on Booklikes.I had to let go of my expectations and just experience it.I'm definitely going to read the next one.

    12. The story is a retelling of the the legend of Topiltzin, who is a mythical hero in Mexican culture. The story is told from Topiltzin’s half-sister, Quetzalpetlatl, an exiled princess and strives to become high priestess of Quetzalcoatl. She is chosen by the god Quetzalcoatl to be Topiltzin’s guardian for the promise that Topiltzin will be the greatest and most benevolent king of all the Toltec? When the story is evoking the Toltec world with magic and mysticism it is at its best; when it tri [...]

    13. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/The Bone Flower Throne is an adult multi-book retelling of the Quetzalcoatl, Quetzalpetlatl, and Topiltzin myths (Quetzalcoatl is duped into sleeping with his sister Quetzalpetlatl, Topiltizin was a "King Arthur" type of legend to the Aztecs). The book is well researched and the author takes creative but interesting liberties with the original story of betrayal and vanity. But while the worldbuilding is excellent, the characters and [...]

    14. I would like to thank NetGalley for offering me access to this work, published by Panverse Publishing, LLC. and giving me the chance to read this ARC all in exchange for an honest review. Though I received the e-book for free that in no way influences this review. 2.5 starsThis book is categorized as historical romance and historical fantasy, both labels I find to be somewhat misleading. But then, I found the entire book to be somewhat confusing. Much of it is straightforward storytelling, and y [...]

    15. Book Title: The Bone Flower ThroneAuthor: TL MorganfieldPublisher: Panverse Publishing, 2013Pages: 534Genre: FantasyThemes: Aztec mythology, history, love, sacrificeRecommended Age: 16 +Rating: ★ ★ ★Summary:This story starts off with the arranged political marriage of seven year old princess Quetzalpetlatl (Papalotl). The reader is introduced to the god of civilization, Feathered Serpent, and the god of night, Smoking Mirror, and their warring followers. Papalotl’s uncle, follower of Smo [...]

    16. DNF at 30%TW: INCEST, RAPE, VICTIM BLAMINGArc provided by netgalleyUnfortunately this wasn't able to convince meThe narrator's voice, that starts out as a seven year old, Quetzalpetltl, sounded very inconsistent. One minute she would be very childish, and then completely grown up.This story strongest point would be it's setting: Tenth century aztec culture (of which i'm completely clueless about).The thing is, this is a very "diluted" aztec environment, with language more appropriate to our days [...]

    17. The Bone Flower Throne is a great example of why I love the A to Z Challenge. I picked it to fill a letter that opened up at the last minute. If not for the Challenge I honestly might not have read it any time soon. That would have been a shame, because I really enjoyed the book. My favorite thing about the book was how the author brought the myth and Toltec culture to life. The way Morganfield gave a basis for the legends in the lives of her mortal characters was extremely well done. I'm not ov [...]

    18. This book manages to be very different from what I usually prefer to read, and also very much what I do tend to read. It had elements of high fantasy, with a great deal of magic, although also far more intervention from the gods than in anything else I've read, with the exception of perhaps the Malazan book of the Fallen series. And this book is not just fantasy, of course. It is based on mythology, on the beliefs of real people, and it is mythology I know little about.I wasn't sure what to expe [...]

    19. THE BONE FLOWER THRONEBook 1 of the Bone Flower TrilogyBy T. L. MorganfieldA tale of Aztecs, their Gods, culture and magicThis is as good a fiction novel on this culture and history as I have read, about which too little is known. While using many proper names of the Aztecs, although the spelling is difficult and the pronunciation impossible, the story would not feel real and would lose much of its appeal otherwise. The author provides a list of the characters at the end for those readers who lo [...]

    20. More of a 2.5, rounded up.What a strange read this was. Quetzalpetlatl is an exiled princess tasked with not only helping raise her younger brother, Topiltzin (who happens to also be the son of a god), but also with working with her brother to end human sacrifice in their kingdom. That's about as straightforward a summary as I can write for the plot of this book, because it read like a bit of an ancient soap opera. So many twists and turns, betrayal, double crossing, over the top evil dudes, dea [...]

    21. Books are for learning, and despite my rating, I learned from this book! Whoo!This is a positive three stars. This story is a retelling of 10th century Aztec mythology with mild historic elements, but instead of a straight-forward story about Topiltzin, the son of the god Quetzalcoatl, it's narrated by his sister Quetzalpetlatl. I got really good at pronouncing these names, by the way. Also the reason why it took me forever to get through it. Must pronounce all the names! Even the ones that look [...]

    22. I have been interested in learning more about Aztec culture and history. The Bone Flower Throne, by T.L. Morganfield was just the book I needed. Not only did I learn from the book, it left me wanting to know more.The Bone Flower Throne is much more than a history lesson. There is magic, myth, and legend mixed in. The novel pits a good God against an evil God.The character’s felt real. There is plenty of action, blood, gore, incest, love, magic, and violence. T.L. Morganfield does a wonderful j [...]

    23. An exciting and suspenseful journey through the civilizations of 10th century Central America. Solid descriptions of the people and places provided great mental images as the action unfolded. I particularly enjoyed the women's perspective on both the love-making and the battles. All the characters were depicted as real people, not stereotypes, and they were very believable. I was pleased to find the story being about people and human nature, although the gods did have their moments. I found I di [...]

    24. Fantasy novel taking place in Toltec MexicoQuetzalpetlatl is a Toltec princess whose life is turned upside-down when her father becomes the victim of a sinister plot after her brother is born to succeed him. Her life also becomes entwined with the feathered serpent god, Quetzalcoatl, with magical powers involved. This long novel deals with the political machinations in the various city-states of Mesoamerican Mexico as Quetzalpetlatl fights for women's rights in a male-dominated world while also [...]

    25. This is one of those books you stay up late to finish. Everytime I felt my eyelids falling, something would happen in the book and I'd have to power through my weariness to see how everything was resolved. I had this book on my shelf for far too long and I can't believe it took me this long to finish it.The research and attention to detail of the Mexica (Aztec) culture is amazing. With just enough names and terms thrown in to pay tribute to the culture but not so much that I was left confused, I [...]

    26. The Bone Flower Throne has a resilient female protagonist and a distinctive, sharply-defined setting. Fast-paced and vivid, TL Morganfield's new fantasy follows an Aztec princess in her struggle to stem the tide of blood sacrifice in 10th century Mexico. Brutal assassins, usurping uncles, and treacherous priests stand in Quetzalpetlatl's way, but she's aided by her benevolent god, the Feathered Serpent, and by magical powers she doesn't fully understand.

    27. Well written original story. The author does a great job of inserting tidbits of information about the time and setting without sounding like a text book. The characters are all very human, no "bad guy" is bad just to be bad, they all have their reasons for what they do, and all the characters are just doing their best in their situations. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and will look forward to the next one!

    28. I received an ARC from the publisher via Net Gallery.I don't often give 3 stars to books I think this might be my first.I was not a fan of the names of the characters, they were either to long and hard to remember or to similar.I tried very hard not to focus on that but I found it to distracting.I did not enjoy the characters either.Storyline here and there was good enough to give its 3 stars.
