Even if to do that, she had to to slip out of windows or run around the Palace’s gardens barefoot like commoner slaves. The chance of learning about the mysterious boy from the Plaza and his whereabouts was well worth it. He had promised to find her, but she was eager to help him keep his promise. In the meanwhile, Miztli, thrown in the strange surroundings of the noble boys’ school and out of his depth on more counts than he could deal with, found that the Emperor was a subtle man of many ideas, not above using spies even if those were villagers of most humble origins. The mission of sneaking to Tlatelolco again, this time semi-officially, looked tempting, promising, offering opportunities to find that Palace’s girl. He greeted it eagerly, impressed with the Emperor’s brilliance and acumen. However, the politics involved in the brewing conflict between the two cities were deep, the rulers’ games ruthless, stalks high. Neither of the youths, not even the restless, resourceful Necalli, anticipated the trouble they would became embroidered at, forced to fight for their lives at times, face difficult dilemmas. ...

Field of Fire Reviews
Good continuation, the politics are getting thicker and so are boys troublesome involvement. The village boy is beginning to find his bearings. It's fascinating to follow his progress, such an outsider in this world of the big city as opposed to small village somewhere no one even knows were. Good character development. Waiting for the next installment.
It’s a story of 2 young people being attracted to each other in spite of the fact that their people are sworn enemies. After Shakespeare set the bar high with “Romeo and Juliet”, and then Arthur Laurents’ play with Bernstein’s music gave us the “West Side Story” so well, it would be easy for an author to be too intimidated by this plot line. Thankfully not intimidated, Ms Saadia masterfully takes that plot and adds some new twist to it to make it hers and make it extremely engaging. The young man was an apprentice only slightly above becomes the special spy for the emperor of a city-state. The young lady was the daughter of the chief advisor to the emperor of the rival city state. These young people struggle with their loyalty to their own emperor and their loyalty to each other as their city-states prepare for war. Once you start reading, you will find it hard to put this one down.
How I enjoy these books. After reading book one, I could not wait for the second. This book particularly, gave a new depth to the storyline, and greater insight into the characters. Awaiting book 3!
As action-filled as the first one but with more politics. Hope the next book comes out soon. Can't wait to see what Tenochtitlan Emperor will make out of Tlatelolco, and if Miztli will manage to safe his girl.
Great continuation! Can't wait to read the next installment. Loved how the Fire Girl found the way to send her letter, didn't expect anything like that (and so evidently her over-noble antagonist didn't). Loved the 'reading lesson' in the end.
I read all the Zoe Saadia that I can find. She brings the Aztec world to life and fill sit with power politics, young people scrambling to grow up and find their footing, and the history of the time as she re-imagines it. Field of Fire is Aztec Chronicle #2. If you like this one, and I think you will, go get #1, and keep reading these.... Young sporting competitor Tlemilli eavesdrops on her father's political scheming and his political machinations. A young noble girl shouldn't be lurking in the palace gardens like a common peasant or a slave, but she's determined. Join Tlemilli and her friends in an adventure that takes you to a world you've never dreamed could exist . . .
