Haven’t read Conquist yet?

What if an army of Spanish conquistadors, the most brutally effective conquerors in history, found their way into a truly new world beyond the New World of the Americas? Conquist tells the story of Captain Cristóbal de Varga whose drive for glory and power leads him to a place from which he can’t escape and a people he can’t conquer. Caught in a war between two eternal enemies that seem at first to be angels and demons, he must choose sides. When he loses everything he holds dear – his command, his Incan princess, his honor, his God – he needs to find a path to redemption by conquering his obsessions.

This time they’ve found a New World that refuses to be conquered.

The only way to read Conquist at the moment was to take out a 2020 Aurealis subscription. (Since this is now no longer possible, you would have to buy each of the ten 2020 Aurealis back issues #127 to #136 individually.)

You have the proof right in your hands, this man can write!… Strasser is a master… enjoy and behold what the fuss is all about.”
