About the Book

The lives of two women, one modern and one an ancient Maya priestess, weave together as the end of the Mayan calendar approaches in 2012. Emergency room nurse Jana Sinclair's recurring dream compels her to journey to jungle-shrouded Mayan ruins where she discovers links with ancient priestess Yalucha, who was mandated to hide her people's esoteric wisdom from the Spaniards. Jana's reluctant husband is swept into strange experiences that make him oppose Jana's quest to explore the sources of her dream. Risking everything, Jana follows her inner guidance and returns to Mexico to unravel her dream. In the Maya lands, dark shamanic forces attempt to deter her and threaten her life.

Ten centuries earlier, Yalucha's life unfolds as a healer at Tikal where she faces heartbreak when her beloved, from an enemy city, is captured and sacrificed. Later in another incarnation at Uxmal, she again encounters him but circumstances thwart their relationship. She journeys to Chichen Itza to join other priests and priestesses in a ritual profoundly important to future times.

As the calendar counts down to December 21, 2012, Jana answers the call across centuries to re-enact the mystical ritual that will birth the new era, confronting shamanic powers and her husband's ultimatum--and activates forces for healing that reach into the past as well as the future.

About the Author

Leonide (Lennie) Martin: Retired California State University professor, former Family Nurse Practitioner, currently author and Maya researcher. My books bring ancient Maya culture and civilization to life in stories about both real historical Mayans and fictional characters. For historical accuracy, I researched Maya archeology, anthropology and history and epigraphy. For indigenous viewpoints, I studied with Maya teachers including Aum Rak Sapper, Guatemalan Priestess-Daykeeper and Hunbatz Men, Itza Maya Elder-Daykeeper. I lived in Mérida, Yucatan, Mexico for five years to apprentice with Hunbatz Men, becoming a Solar Initiate and Maya Fire Woman in the Itza Maya tradition. The ancient Mayas created the most highly advanced civilization in the Western hemisphere, and my work is dedicated to their wisdom, spirituality, scientific, and cultural accomplishments through compelling historical novels.

My series called "Mists of Palenque" is focused on ancient Mayan women. This 4-book series about Mayan queens tells the stories of powerful women who shaped the destinies of their people as rulers themselves, or wives of rulers. These remarkable Mayan women, actual historical figures, are unknown to most people. Accurately researched, my books of historical fiction depict ancient Mayan civilization authentically and make the passions, yearnings, challenges and successes of these Mayan women accessible to a wide readership.
