When three college students enrolled in a summer archaeological program in Mexico in the year 2012, they never suspected their summer adventures would extend past dusty pottery sherds and margaritas. However, when one of their number starts having visions and seeing signs, they realize their dig has greater implications than course credit. Now, they must work together to appease the ancient Mayan Gods and discover the identity of the only person who can restart the world’s calendar – before all hell breaks loose.

A shocking story of how one person can make a world of difference, this is, The Last Baktun.


Second edition released May 2010 – reduced price!
