The mind-bending, stunningly inventive sequel to Brian D'Amato's In Courts of the Sun , in which one man holds the key to saving the world from the 2012 apocalypse foretold by the Mayan Prophecy.

In Brian D'Amato's cult classic, In the Courts of the Sun , a team of scientists sent math prodigy and Mayan descendant Jed DeLanda back in time to the year AD 664 to learn the "Sacrifice Game," a divination ritual that the ancient Maya used to predict the apocalypse on December 21, 2012. But after arriving in the body of a willing human sacrifice instead of a Mayan king, Jed's experiences led him to the fateful decision that rather than avert the apocalypse, he must ensure instead that the world ends.Using his knowledge of the divination game, Jed sets in motion a series of events that will bring about the destruction of humanity, ending the world's pain and suffering once and for all. But before the plan can be completed, the organization that sent him into the past discovers his intention and devotes every resource to stop him.Taking readers back to the dizzying action of ancient times, The Sacrifice Game is a breathtaking odyssey in which Jed must survive bloody wars, ruthless leaders, shifting alliances, and unspeakable betrayal to learn about the Game, before his time in both the ancient Mayan empire and the present day runs out.

This sequel to the In the Courts of the Sun truly didn't dissapoint. This series is very challenging to read but oh so very satisfying. I can honestly say that these are two of some of the best books I have ever read. Anyone who enjoys picking up a hefty book, cracking it open and delving into a strange, highly intelligent, mind-bending world will love Brian D'Amato. He doesn't baby the reader - keep up or get off the ride.
