Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Set amidst the adventure and intrigue of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, this spellbinding novel follows two youths from enemy nations as they struggle to understand themselves and their world in the face of the looming war.  

From the Back Cover

"...Excellent, easy toread prose and an intriguing storyline..." - Historical Novel Review, Mirella Patzer
"The storytelling flows intricately and effortlessly, the characters and storyline well-developed... Learning history of a little known period in this way is fun and entertaining, as well as educational, and brings authenticity to the story
..." - Between the Lines, UK
"... For those who enjoy good adventure with romance, secrets, politics and war..." - Jerry Beller, the founder of Author Alliance and historical fiction reader and author. 
"...Let me just tell you this: ifmore indie writers published such interesting, well-researched books, featuringnon-nonsense plots and a bunch of likeable characters I could relate to, Iwould be far more willing to accept their novels for review, even on a dailybasis..." - Portable Pieces of Thoughts, Anachronistbook reviewer
"...It's perfectly edited, deceptively simple, charming, and (ohjoy!) without any grammar or punctuation errors. Aside from that, though, it'sjust really, really good..." - Terry Tylor, author and book reviewer from Rosie Amber book reviews team
"Saadia's passion and knowledge of history isevident on every page and this lends a great deal of credence to the novel...All in all, The Highlander is a thoroughlyengaging read about friendship but there are very serious undertones that makeit a relevant choice for readers of all ages" - LindleyReviews

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Zoe Saadia is the author of several novels of pre-Columbian Americas. From the architects of the Aztec Empire to the founders of the Iroquois Great League, from the towering pyramids of Tenochtitlan to the longhouses of the Great Lakes, her novels bring long-forgotten history, cultures and people to life, tracing pivotal events that brought about the greatness of North and Mesoamerica.

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 have an extremely rich, diverse, fascinating history long before this continent came to contact with the rest of the world

So her professional motto is set. America has not been 'discovered' by other continents, not yet. Maybe not ever. Not in her novels
