Don Ignacio, the last heir of Guatemoc and the ruler of the Aztec Empire before Cortes, is bequeathed half of an emerald meant to identify him as successor to the rightful Aztec sovereign. Accompanied by his Inglese friend James Strickland, and guided by the beautiful Maya, they travel to the City of the Heart, an ancient city hidden in the mountains. Along the Way, the indian princess and the white Englishman fall in love but suffer deeply because of their feelings.

Set mostly in Central America in the 1870s, this is one of Haggard's more interesting romantic adventure novels.
