Overview

It’s 1782 in New Mexico and slavers are operating ruthlessly throughout the colony. Apaches and Comanches battle with Spanish militias to protect their homelands. Governor Anza, at his wits’ end, commandeers the help of Nando, a naïve but wily young half-breed, embedding him in his network of spies.
Fast-paced and true to the realities of the time, The King’s Lizard catapults the reader into the fierce and demanding life of colonial Santa Fe.
Did you ever wish you could roam the American west in early days? See the land as it once was and experience life on a frontier that is gone forever? Pamela Christie, an award-winning author of the historic Southwest, has created a mystery series set in old Santa Fe when Spain has already occupied New Mexico for almost 200 years.
In The King’s Lizard, the first of the Lizard Tales, the reader rides with Nando Aguilar, a young man with a light heart and a pleasingly competent hand. Lost between the culture of his Ute mother who is a slave, and his upper class Spanish father, Nando struggles to find himself, discovers love and gains stature as a member of Governor Anza’s spy network
