Imagine that the Aztec (Nawa) empire had never been defeated. Now fast-forward 500+ years to the present day…
Weetzy, an imperial warrior, is wounded in a mysterious “flower war” and discharged from the military. Suffering from PTSD, physically disfigured, and ashamed that he has failed the gods, he struggles to find his place as a civilian in a war-obsessed society. He crosses paths with Leeltick, a young slave girl. She serves the emperor’s daughter and is made an accomplice to a string of heinous crimes against the empire. When faced with terrible choices, both Weetzy and Leeltick are caught between what the gods say is right…and what the empire says is law.
