Apocalypse 2012 (Aztec)by Gary Jennings
Synopses & Reviews
Todays world leaders and those of 1,000 years ago face the worlds end.
The Mayan “End-Time Codex” predicts the end of the world in 2012. A young Aztec-Mayan slave tells the story of its creation: gifted in math and astronomy, Coyotl advises the god-king, Quetzalcoatl. Gathering artists, scientists, and architects, this ruler builds the great, golden city of Tula but soon faces war, disastrous drought, death-cult priests who rip the hearts out of thousands of people. . . and an epic catastrophe threatening all humanity.
Meanwhile, thousand years later, scientists have rediscovered the End-Time Codex and learned that their own time mirrors Tulas golden age. Can they crack the 2012 code and save their world from Tulas deadly fate? The countdown begins.
