Book Description

The expanding Aztec capital grew unhappy under the stern rule of their Tepanec overlords. Having tried every political trick, Acamapichtli, a wise and vigorous ruler of the Aztecs, saw his chance when the delegation of the elite Tepanec warriors arrived at his island-city to enlist a force of the Aztec warriors. Intrigued with the leader of the delegation, an older but still wild, reckless, and very resourceful Atolli, the Emperor seizes his chance, gambling in a strange way for a long-term future.

Meanwhile, Atolli arrived at the Aztec Capital with more on his mind than a mundane mission. Determined to face his own demons, to resolve issues from his past, he gets into more trouble than he could have foreseen, changing the history of the entire region along the way.


Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Ten years later, Atolli, already an elite warrior, arrives in the Capital of the Aztecs on a mundane mission of enlisting the warriors of the subjected city. But then, thrust into situations where his own mortality and loyalties are questioned, he is compelled to grow up at long last.

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING THIRD NOVEL OF THE SERIES! April 21, 2012
By readitz
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read the first and second of this series and the third is no less gripping. Just as in the second of the series, this third book, The Jaguar Warrior, brings back familiar characters from the last book, and it is oh so full, full, full, of surprises. This series has twists and turns, and there is never a dull moment. I am now awaiting the forth of this series and though I don't think the authors fingers could ever type fast enough for me, I'm really really hoping that history will not play out too fast in this series. I'd gladly read a dozen more novels filled with the world of these characters and situations. This is a fascinating storyline and very well written. No matter what genre you read, this series will not disappoint. There's excitement, suspense, it's laden with historical facts, and there's even a bit of romance in this series. I'm hooked. This author's got a follower for life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Character Development Throughout the Series May 29, 2012
By OpusMom
Format:Kindle Edition
I've enjoyed reading all of Zoe's books. The character development has been great throughout all three books. I don't read a lot of fiction, nonfiction is where I spend most of my time. However, I feel like I'm getting to know about Columbia in a fun and artful way. This book (and the two previous ones in the series) are definitely worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Left me wanting more December 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is historical fiction with an interesting twist in using pre-Aztecs as the backdrop. Often overlooked in literature, Early Pre-Columbian America history, the author brings to the reader an outstanding story with a captivating setting that is refreshing in todays landscape of historical fiction. "The Jaguar Warrior," is an engaging story that held my attention, it left me wanting more. Well written by a seasoned author, the quality of weaving a masterfully conflicted plot that holds your attention is beyond compare. Speaking of historical fiction, Zoe has certainly found a niche that she dominates with authority. Simply put, well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've never loved the Aztecs more December 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Continuing on her Pre-Aztec trilogy, Saadia writes yet another masterpiece of historical fiction. In this volume, the expanding Aztec capital grows unhappy under the stern rule of their overlords. What ensues is a story of political trickery, cunning strategy, intrigue, and suspense. If you read book 1, you realize that Saadia accomplishes all of this while providing insightful characters, believable dialogue, and interesting settings. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first December 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved the first book of this exciting historical fiction series, The Young Jaguar (Pre-Aztec Trilogy, Prequel Book 1) by Zoe Saadia and now The Jaguar Warrior (Pre-Aztec Trilogy, Prequel Book 2) by Zoe Saadia is on my favorites list as well. It’s another page-turner filled with intrigue and fascinating characters. The author has a way with realistic portrayals of the characters at that time. This is a great series. Highly recommended. Five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic November 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is another wonderful book of the author’s Pre-Aztec series. Her books are fascinating but this one excited my expectations. This is a very very well written story that will keep you fascinated and unable to put the book down. I am not sure how she does it but her books are getting better and better. She is a very talented author. I would recommend this book to everyone who loves to read amazing books.

I have truly enjoyed this Native American pre-Columbian culture series. Just finished the third book "The Jaguar Warrior," and have to say it did not disappoint! A fascinating ’page-turner’ you won’t want to miss. I love Zoe's insightful characters, she is quite descriptive! I highly recommend and looking forward to the next one. Don’t miss the first two!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting historical saga with romance thrown in April 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this entire trilogy. I found The history of Pre-Aztec Mexico to be very good reading. The characters are interesting and well drawn. These were what I call "page turners" . I could hardly wait to see what would happen next. This is a compelling story of the power of human love,no matter what the era. Some of the battle scenes are pretty blood thirsty,but I still enjoyed reading this series.

More About the Author

Zoe Saadia is the author of several novels of pre-Columbian Americas.

Having researched various pre-contact cultures of this continent for more than a decade, she is convinced that it's a shame that such a large part of history was completely overlooked, by historical fiction most of all.

Both Americas has an extremely rich, diverse, fascinating history long before this continent was discovered by other civilizations.
So her professional motto is set. America has not been discovered by other continents, not yet. Not in her novels :)
