Publisher's Summary

Best-selling writing team and archaeologists W. Michael and Kathleen O’Neal Gear offer this compelling second novel in their Battle for America series. In 1539, Black Shell, his wife Pearl Hand, and their fellow exiles try to make a stand against the invasion of the Kristianos and their leader Hernando de Soto. But de Soto doesn’t plan to back down easily.

Bad acting

the acting is horrible. the word pronunciation is really bad. I can't understand the Spanish words the reader tries to pronounce. the story meanders aimlessly. I skipped to the end just to clear it from my reading list.
