Imprisoned in a box, Atl waits for death. He is not afraid. Anger burns too deeply within him. Then, unexpectedly, Atl is released. Released to deliver an urgent message. But it is not the mission that sets him running. It is the sudden chance for freedom. Nothing can stop this Jaguar Warrior. Not even the one who hunts him.

  • Sandy draws on her fascination with history and ancient cultures for inspiration and the result is a page turning adventure
  • A brilliantly researched & evocative tale of a fascinating time popular with children
  • Accessible & action-packed adventure story with interesting characters
