A dazzling look at Mayan mythology incarnate from "New York Times" bestselling author Steve Alten

Immanuel Gabriel travels to the end of the world and back again for one last shot at global salvation...

Immanuel, the surviving hero twin foretold in the Mayan creation story, finds his world rocked after an encounter with his deceased grandfather, archaeologist Julius Gabriel. Julius reveals everything the Mayans knew and feared from the very secrets of creation to the presence of extraterrestrial benefactors; from mankind's intended purpose to the preordained End of Days.

If Immanuel is to thwart Judgment Day, he must act swiftly."
