The girls have to save the village soon – the equinox is coming and one of the legendary serpents will make her annual journey down from high atop Chichen Itza’s Grand Pyramid, to look for Princess Itza’s Emerald and the village of Ek Balam will feel the wrath of her curse continue if she doesn’t find it...

Join Landis and her friend Maya, on their quest for the priceless treasure. Learn lots of interesting Mayan facts on the adventure, too...
Living in an ancient Mayan world nestled in untouched jungles of the Yucatan has given my mom Casey and I some adventures of a lifetime. Our Mayan friends have shared with us many secrets of their culture and we have experienced many of their customs and ceremonies. There are many mysteries and legends of this ancient race, and I started this series to share some of these fascinating traditions in a fun mystery book which educates you to the everyday life of the traditional Mayans still living in pueblitos and into authentic ancient customs through flashbacks in the book. My mom and I are Canadian, but I am completely fluent in my second language of Spanish, so I added some easy-to-remember Spanish words to teach you a little of the language. All of the facts throughout the book are true, but they are presented in an entertaining fictional style with a closing message of integrity and wholesomeness. I am writing my next Landis Adventure book called “The Mystery at Isla Mujeres”, which takes place on a beautiful island nestled off the coast of Cancun, in the aquamarine waters of the Caribbean Sea.
