Publisher Comments:

IT WAS PREDICTED. WE WERE WARNED.

THE APOCOLYPSE IS COMING.

 

In the Courts of the Sun introduced Maya descendent Jed DeLanda, a math prodigy who, because of his rare knowledge of an ancient divination tool called the Sacrifice Game, was chosen to prevent the coming apocalypse. But now the world faces a new threat: Jed himself.

Synopsis:

TO THE WORLD OF ANCIENT MAYA, AND FAR BEYOND…

In the Courts of the Sun introduced Maya descendent Jed De Landa, a math prodigy with rare knowledge of an ancient divination tool called the Sacrifice Game.

Synopsis:

Here is the extraordinary story of the last and greatest native civilization of North America, at the height of its magnificence. It is a story told in the words of one of the most robust and memorable characters in modern fiction. His name is Mixtli-Dark Cloud. Rising above his lowly station, Mixtli distinguishes himself as a scribe and later a warrior. He earns a fortune as a traveling merchant, exploring every part of what the Aztecs called The One World-the far lands of mountains, jungles, deserts, seacoasts.
