According to Mayan legend, the human age is scheduled to end today. That's what the Belizean tour guide tells Michelle's family as they paddle canoes out of the solstice sun and deep into the mysterious, dark cave system.
The Earth trembles. The cave crumbles. Michelle is thrown back in time, away from everything she knows and everyone she loves, into an ancient world of palace politics, bloody warfare, and human sacrifice.
Men Ch'o, second son of the ruler of a small Mayan city-state, has always stood in the shadow of his elder brother, but the unexpected arrival of the goddess Ix Chel in human form will shift the fulcrum of power and upset the balance of his heart.
The unlikely intersection of their lives just might change everything.
