by Wim Coleman and Pat Perrin
Near the end of the Terminal Classic Mayan period, a high priest commits a murder where a sacrifice is needed. The consequences of his deed will reach across worlds and ages. In our own time, Lydia Rosenstrom is a master translator working with an archeological team in Yucatán and on a virtual reality simulation of the ancient site. She's drawn into a dangerous convergence of realities. This tightly-woven tale blends mysticism, technology, archaeology, authentic Mayan history and mythology into a captivating account of challenges, consciousness change, and transformation. Not about the end of the world—it's about possibilities.
