When I saw this book, I thought it was really ancient with a really ancient, boring story. However when I actually stopped judging the book by the cover and back-cover synopsis, I became somewhat interested on how a slave became a demigod. Right?! Also, the fact that I had nothing else to read for class (LOL). Anyway, so the first 200 pages of this book is about who this girl is. We are introduced to the protagonist of the book whose name is under wraps for the time being. We don’t find out her name until about chapter ten of the story. Meanwhile (before chapter ten), we are told that the protagonist is a slave who has been traded more times than she can count. She has been taken from her grandmother and been separated from her once again. We learn that no one finds her attractive & portrays her as incapable of work as she is being sold in the market. We also learned that she is a short-tempered, smell-sensitive child who expresses these rather trouble-making traits via her attack of one of the customers as well as an animal. The third person omniscient narrator informs the reader that she didn’t know how that happened implying that she does not know that she maybe related to a jaguar (or being the jaguar princess). In addition to the protagonist, we are also introduced to the second protagonist. The formatting of the book is that each chapter is divided into two- one for the slave-girl and one for Telatoni. Telatoni is a leader and warrior whose wisdom is the reason why he gets into situations following. The situation of this protagonist can be easily described as man vs. himself type of plot/story. Telatoni questions the religion of those who live among the Aztec land and questions his way of life. His modern wisdom and conception is not accepted by anyone which is something he knows for a fact. In spite of this, his conception brings him to the advancement of his religious childhood learning/knowledge of the Jaguar People of a previous (long ago) era. Meanwhile, we learn that the slave girl draws a highly despised symbol from the religious handbook of the people soon after the death of the head priest of the school she works at. She is then made aware of the bad symbol she made and is notified that she had hidden talents that she was never taught. The symbol she drew was a production of glyph writing. She is then given a spot at the glyph writing house and given the once-stripped education she was suppose to receive. Around chapter ten or a little after, these two characters (the two protagonists) meet up or clash. This is like the climax to the book in my own opinion. He brought her to his land and place with the lead glyph-writer to assist in writing a story for another leader affiliated with Telatoni. The other reason why he brought her here not that she knows but the reason is that she is the descendant of the Jaguar people which may be the answer to his religious mishaptures and resistance. However, he meets her finding somewhat of a sexual appeal or intimacy (only one way) towards her but endeavors to ignore it. Long after, he exposes to her his secret the real reason for bringing her and tries to expose the creature in her instead of her trying to tame it. This book is an extremely excellent book so far. I am especially fond of the part where she tries to resist something truly self-overwhelming, unknown, hazardous, and extreme trait in her but is forced to do the opposite. That for me was an excellent part of the book and the way she ( now Seven- Flower Mixcatl) handled the situation. She is extremely courageous and a character worth reading about also Telatoni. SO far: 5 stars out of 5. BTW: I think I like historical fiction. I see a trend. 🙂
