Of Aztecs and Conquistadors
Great to see that Amazon are promoting my international best selling romantic poetry collection, Of Aztecs and Conquistadors, written under my Juan Pablo Jalisco pseudonym. Having topped the rankings in the USA, UK and Canada, the book is available in paperback, as Amazon are promoting it and also in Kindle edition where it is under £2, and under $3 in the USA and also FREE on Kindle Unlimited. Written following my time in Mexico some years ago, you can find the book at http://viewBook.at/Aztecs-Conquistadors
5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely collection of poetry.
By Dom on 2 February 2015
Format: Paperback
I'm no expert in poetry, yet the topic was catching enough for me to try the book. And, of course, since I love the stories of the old Aztecs and the greedy, religious beasts who conquered them, I could not resist to see what the poet had to say about them. I got it and I loved it. It takes a person of unique ability to delve into the deep depths, mundane joys and sad laments of an ancient culture declined. I was surprised how he could bring out so many different moods and feelings from my tired soul as I read about the swaying dancers, the unsuspecting hummingbirds, the lonely desert and the wintry trees, and I especially loved "a Personal Genesis," for it summed up the whole concept of a conquered race very well indeed. I'd guess the author is a deep thinker of advanced years, or someone who has had a lot of time to enjoy the fragrance of history and the dilemmas of human existence.

This is an exquisite collection of achingly beautiful poetry. The rich and romantic fabric of the words transport you to Mexico, and you can almost smell, taste and feel the magic of this vibrant country. The varied poems range from Mexico's history, to heartbreaking love affairs and friendships forged, to the changing seasons of this special part of the world, and to memories that will last a lifetime. I found within the pages melancholy poetry which really spoke to me on a personal level. This amazing writer has a way of connecting with the reader, and I found his words to be deeply moving. His poetry evokes memories of heartbreak, loss, loneliness and despair, yet equally he is able to celebrate love, passion and human kindness. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, the poignant words will stay with you forever, and will leave an imprint on your soul for all-time. Wow, what an accomplished poet - a stunning selection of inspirational literature!!
'Of Aztecs and Conquistadors' is the definitive collection of Juan Pablo Jalisco's poetry. The selection featured within these pages will carry the reader on a journey not only through the vast beauty of the land that is Mexico, but also serves as a journey through the ages that have helped to shape this at times wild and rugged, but always romantic and awesomely beautiful country and its people.
