After the discovery of her ancient Maya bloodlines, eighteen-year-old Ashley Coreandero is faced with a daunting responsibility. She must protect the stone of Muuk’Ich while Sarian, the underworld general, relentlessly drives her to the brink of insanity.

As the winter solstice approaches, it brings an onslaught of unexpected side effects. Ashley must seize control over her supercharged powers, while dealing with the overwhelming suspicion that her boyfriend, Arwan, is hiding a secret so dark it could destroy them both.

With the arrival of a surprise houseguest, Ashley’s deepest fears about Arwan are confirmed. And when middleworld deities intercede, the group of gifted Maya descendants are confronted with hardships they never saw coming—including an enemy more deadly than they have ever faced.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned—but when that woman has no soul and a taste for revenge, they will need the powers of every surviving ancestor simply to stay alive.

My two-bits:
I was at a loss by not reading book one in this series first - could be why it was hard to connect with the characters. Although the 2-3 main characters were presented well enough in this book, the other characters who were established in book one felt peripheral and did not mean much to me in this book.

Plenty of action and hints of romance in South American settings.

The mystery of the stone, Ashley's powers and Arwan's secret kept me wondering to the end.

Wanna give this one a try?

  2. I hadn't heard of this series, but I haven't read many with that backdrop or world building so I'll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
