UK Kirkus Review » The glorious deeds of men like Cortes and Pizarro are legend. Their brave expeditions to South America and their conquests are stirring stuff indeed. But, in this unique book, Stuart Stirling reveals a darker side to the story. How the Inca civilisation suffered a holocaust at the hands of men intent on wealth and booty. How Inca princesses were turned into Spanish concubines and how the Inca dynasty itself was degraded and finally rendered extinct. Evidence of the brutality of the conquest is scattered throughout this book; how smallpox vied with malnutrition and slavery to decimate a subject population. But Stirling focuses on the Inca princesses and allows their story to represent the havoc wrought on the Inca world. He deploys a wealth of fascinating sources to reveal a truth left out of accounts by conquistadors themselves. The rape, slavery and abuse of the Inca royal family stand testament to Spain's ignoble treatment of a defeated people. (Kirkus UK)
