One of my favorite scenes is at the beginning when, upon arriving in the city, she hears the rumor that if a slave touches the walls of the palace, they are freed. Naturally, she makes a run for it! She doesn't succeed, yet after she becomes a scribe she doesn't try again. The author shows that a person can change as they grow. Mixcatl has been indoctrinated to her new society - readying her to remain here and fulfill her destiny.
An exciting adventure, a great heroine and even a love story all work to make this a fantastic novel. There is a lot of humor, and very good character development.

Though the actual shapeshifting doesn't occur until the end, the book is a real page turner. I would have loved a sequel. But, if you enjoy shapeshifter stories, or historical fiction, do yourself a favor and find a copy. Mixcati's people are descended from the Olmec Jaguar Gods and she is fated for great things-both wonderful and dangerous. She can, unexpectedly and without warning, turn into a living, wild jaguar, just as her ancestors have done since time immemorial.
Once stolen into slavery, she must struggle to survive and to learn to fulfill her destiny in an Aztec culture that understands her strength, fears her power, and wants her dead.

Her people were descended form the ancient Olmec Jaguar gods, and her secret heritage destined her for a life of high striving For like her ancestral gods Mixcatl could change, unexpectedly and with startling suddenness, into a living, wild jaguar. But fate had assigned her a much more difficult role. Mixcatl knew well what those handles were used for. She had been dragged from the jobbing lot where slaves were collected for transport to market.
Danger Looms in the Jungle
The collar handles made it easier for the slave traders to seize slaves and shove them into the market boat. This story is different from my usual medieval reads because it is set in medieval Mexico not Europe, and from my usual fantasy fixes because the girl changes into a jaguar not a wolf.
I would hate that. The only shape changing I would fancy is into a mermaid! At the age of six, she arrives in Tenochtitlan, the ancient Aztec city, and there she is sold to Speaking Quail.
