Have you heard of the end of time that has been predicted by the Mayans to be coming in 2012? Mayan Equinox surrounds this legend and a race by one man to stop it through human sacrifices and another man’s race to stop the killings.
Mayan Equinox is a look into the Mayan belief that time will end in December of 2012. Throughout Mayan history, their calendar has pointed to the end of time, which is happening in our lifetime. It is a mystery that this particular story has as its centerpiece.
The story surrounds a man who believes he can make time continue on if he is able to find a special key that has been hidden in the Mayan word of Central America. The only catch is that the path to finding that key has a couple of human sacrifices along the way.
The man looking for the key, who has been hired to find it for a very rich man known as the professor, has no problem with this. But another professor, Russell Palmer, who finds out about what is going on is now busily trying to stop the sacrifices.
I am not going to spoil any of what happens in the book, but if you have any interest in Mayan culture or their story of time ending in 2012, this is a fun read. Not only is it an interesting mystery to read, but also it also well describes the Mayan world and the beauty, mystery and intrigue that world is filled with.
Is this a great mystery? Not really. Many of the mysterious components are given to you a little to early for my liking. I felt more like I knew everything and was following our main character as he discovered them, which took some of the suspense away from the book. But the scenery and characters you were able to follow throughout were completely worth it though.
Kevin Foley is the voice of Mayan Equinox. He has a great clear voice that is easy to listen to. From the narration of the scenery to the voices of all the Mayan hierarchy he is easy to follow through the story.
