"A deftly crafted and inherently absorbing novel by a writer who has a genuine flair for reader engaging narrative storytelling, "Arrows of Fire" by Marlen Suyapa Bodden is "exceptionally entertaining" and "unreservedly recommended." Midwest Book Review

Arrows of Fire "was a thrill to read and very educational. The facts are accurate. I recommend this book to all who are thinking of traveling to Mexico and all who are genuinely interested in learning more about the true history of America. Arrows of Fire is an exciting book." Shirley Willard, county historian appointed by the Indiana Historical Society.

Arrows of Fire "is a satisfying read, filling in blanks in my knowledge of the Spanish conquest of the Aztec empire. It is also a disturbing read because it throws a harsh spotlight on the racist assumptions that allowed European explorers to justify their wholesale destruction of the indigenous populations of the lands they stole and then claimed for the various crowns that had underwritten the cost of the expeditions. The author is a gifted story teller, combining vivid detail with historic accuracy. She also has a knack for creating characters that I came to care about...." The White Rhino Report
