Description

December 21, 2012: The fabled Feathered Serpent begins his relentless ascent out of the bowels of the earth, escaping thousands of years of torturous confinement. Controversial astrobiologist and archaeologist Caden Montez--who believes Teotihuacan is the best site on earth to find alien life forms, such as the Serpent--is on his trail. While exploring this so-called "City of the Gods"--a place so eerie it terrified even the most ferocious Aztecs--she discovers that the Serpent has broken free.
Ancient Mayan priests prophesied that when the God-King returned, he would open the gates to the End Time. Together with an ancient 1000-year-old Mayan warrior--who has crossed the Gulf of Time to save humanity from extinction--the outrageous and beautiful Caden must stop him. Scientists, political leaders, and journalists who have long ridiculed Caden's theories have no one else to turn to. The Mayans' Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse is on the move, and humanity's survival hangs in the balance.

Review quote

"Podrug's novels tend to lean heavily on outlandish premises tinged with mysticism, whether they involve searching for lost Tibetan treasure (Frost of Heaven, 2000) or time-traveling back to New Testament Galilee (Dark Passage, 2004). His latest follows suit, revolving as it does around the notion of Aztec deity Quetzalcoatl awakening in 2012 from a long slumber in an apocalyptically bad mood. When archaeologist Caden Montez visits the Mesoamerican ruins of Teotihuacan, the supposed Mayan doomsday of December 21, 2012, has passed uneventfully, except for an inexplicable fish die-off in the Gulf. Then, in rapid succession, Caden is kidnapped by Mexicans wishing to sacrifice her, drugged by government agents, and rescued by a cult of alien abductees. Her biggest surprise, however, comes when her path intersects that of an ancient Mexican Indian ballplayer, mysteriously transported to the modern day.
Podrug's new yarn may get lost in the glut of 2012-themed novels and movies now fl
