Les presentamos al príncipe Acolmiztli. Puma de la gente Acolhua.
Heredero al trono de su padre. Mitad Acolhua, mitad Mexica. Cantante.
Guerrero. Poeta. Dieciséis años de edad.

Y ahora, traicionado. Una conspiración en el palacio, planeada por el letal imperio Tepaneca, mata a

al príncipe Acolmiztli a un exilio pernicioso. Enfrentándose al hambre,
las montañas nevadas, y las maquinaciones de los reinos a su alrededor,
el príncipe Acolmiztli jura venganza. Le tomará años, pero regresará buscando justicia. Y lo hará con un nuevo nombre:

Nezahualcóyotl, el coyote
en ayuno, una de las figuras más ilustres en la historia.

Del galardonado

de Montecristo
situado en un México precolombino. Con ilustraciones a lo
largo del libro por Amanda Mijangos, El príncipe y la coyote da vida a uno
de los héroes más adorados de Mexico, Nezahualcóyotl, en una historia que embelesará lectores por todas partes.

Mexico. 1418.

Meet Prince Acolmiztli. Puma of the Acolhua People. Heir to his father’s throne. Half Acolhuan, half Mexica. Singer. Warrior. Poet. Sixteen years old.

And now, betrayed. A palace plot, placed by the deadly Tepaneca Empire, kills his mother and siblings, puts his father’s army into retreat, and sends Prince Acolmiztli into a treacherous exile. Battling hunger, snow-swept mountains, and the machinations of the city-states all around him, Prince Acolmiztli vows revenge. It will take years, but he will return to seek justice. And he'll do it with a new name:

Nezahualcoyotl. Fasting Coyote. One of the most legendary figures in history.

From the award-winning comes a heart-pounding historical epic that is Gladiator meets the Song of Achilles -- The Count of Monte Cristo set in pre-Columbian Mexico. Illustrated throughout gorgeously by Amanda Mijangos, The Prince & the Coyote brings to life one of Mexico’s most treasured heroes – Nezahualcoyotl – in a story that will thrill readers far and wide.
