Anasazi Princess Shanni and her people, the Huastecs, are lost and suffering in the desert of New Mexico as they attempt to journey south to the “Center” of their ancient Mayan homeland. Seeking help, they fall into the hands of renegade leader Kaibito and become his prisoners. The Huastec shaman, Tonah, realizes that a more sinister force threatens the Huastecs and the life of Caleb Stone, who has arrived to help Shanni and the Huastecs. Jorge Tupac utilizes the ancient sorcery of the Mayans to trap and attempt to murder Shanni, forcing her, Caleb, and Tonah into a fight for their lives.Excerpts:It was the ultimate killing machine. Self-contained and mobile, its sole reason for being was to take life efficiently and remorselessly. Sampling the air as it moved, it could detect odors as small as a part per million and move without sound over rough terrain. It could set up and arm itself and lay in wait until a life form came into range. It was unaware of time and would wait patiently for hours or even days until time to act.In total darkness and in less than half a second it could drive forward and deliver a lethal cocktail of chemical compounds composed of proteins, proteolytic enzymes, and polypeptides of low molecular weight, setting in motion the devastating breakdown of a living organism’s system...it was the ultimate predator: It existed only to kill.About the Author:James Gibson combined his love of the American West of the 1870s with his research on Native American shamanism to complete the 5-book Anasazi Quest series. Jim has traveled extensively in the American West, and researched the “Anasazi”, the Ancestral Pueblo who built the most advanced civilization in the American southwest in the 1200s. The characters in his books travel into revolutionary Mexico, and on into the Yucatan of the colonial period. In Anasazi Triumph, Jim wrote about the coming culmination of the 5,000 year Mayan calendar, and the prophesies associated with it. The September 25, 2006 issue of Newsweek devoted half a page to explaining the end date of December 23, 2012, when the cycle restarts. Mel Gibson’s (no relation) movie Apocalypto reveals the Maya at the height of their powers, but does not focus on their cosmic world view.
