Read an Excerpt


Entry added August 2012 to the Guzmán-Gonzales family journal by Cassandra Luisa Gonzales.

When I finally broke down last week and told Nana about the dream I've been having since the accident, she didn't say a word. All she did was hand me this journal. I've read it a hundred times and most of it still doesn't make sense. It can't. I'd rather be crazy than believe that the gorgeous stranger starring in my increasingly dirty dreams is some reincarnated Mayan hero.

What started as a passionate romp in my sleep with a hunky stranger has become something much more terrifying. Don't get me wrong—they're wonderful, erotic dreams. I've never found so much pleasure and passion in any man's arms before. But each dream is stronger and more detailed than the last. He claims the magic is mine, that each time I dream him I'm binding him more fully to my world.

To me.

He's not real.

So I kept telling myself. Until this morning when I woke up with a few token bruises and scuff marks from his enthusiastic lovemaking. Either I really am losing my mind and have started to hurt myself in my sleep—including bite marks on my neck—or Nana's journal isn't a bunch of myths. Myths I started to dream before I ever read them in these ancient pages so painstakingly copied generation after generation.

Now I find myself continuing the family tradition by adding pages to this journal, both to keep my sanity and as a warning. This is what happens when you lose your grip on reality. When you begin to fall in love with a man you've only known in dreams. When you become so desperate for the truth that you're willing to leave behind everything to find him.

There's only one way to find out if I'm as crazy as I fear, or if there's a kernel of truth to these legends. I've decided to go to Guatemala and find out. I'm going to find Nana's family. I'm going to talk to some of the people who were raised on the legends in her journal.

Even more importantly, I'm going to walk the ground where Técun Úman, the legend himself, supposedly lived and breathed.

And died.

Then maybe he'll leave me the fuck alone.

Oh, don't worry about me too much. I'm taking my best friend Natalie along for the ride. She's ordered me to enjoy this desperate crusade as a vacation. Even if she has to commit me to an insane asylum before we fly home, we'll start out by having a good time.

    This is a rather bloodthirsty ss, a slice of Mayan history, albeit a bit
    altered. This story is a take on the Mayan prediction that the world
    will end n December 21, 2012. Here, however; the world will not end on
    this date; but the Mayan civilization will return to power, being led by
    the warrior king Técun. Cassie is an American girl of Guatemalan
    ancestry. She becomes the guardian of a set of journals, which cause her
    to have erotic dreams of a warrior lover. She finds out that throughout
    the generations, the women in her family have been the keepers of the
    journal until the time comes for Técun to return to this world. The
    dreams and the journals lead her to Central America to fulfill her
    destiny of releasing the the warrior king from his prison, by way of
    opening the gate using the 'magic' in her blood. Once she releases him,
    he beings to gather an army to defeat Alvarado, the mortal enemy who
    killed Técun in his last incarnation; and who caused his imprisonment.
    The story is an interesting mix of Mayan legend, including blood, pain,
    and sacrifice; and a lot of action as Técun hunts for his ancient enemy
    with the help of Cass. It was a quite different read from the normal
    fare. ARC provided by NetGalley and Carina Press
