Read full description of the books In the Teeth of the Gods: the great ballgame and the apocalypse of Mayan thrones:The ancient Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012. Ironically, the real apocalypse of the Mayans happened more than a thousand years ago. What happened? In the Teeth of the Gods is an epic fantasy telling that story. Magic, mystery, intrigue and adventure fill these pages and transport you back to a world unlike any you have ever experienced.
Long ago, in a time of gods and spirits, the world has been thrown out of balance. In a land where the last king of the Mayans has just come to the throne, trouble is brewing. To the north, supernatural forces are at work. Caught in the teeth of these gods is a man from the lands where the buffalo are still hunted, a land that is unyielding and harsh and cold. Akoda, the buffalo runner, must find the House of the Sun, the distant summertime kingdom of Tikal, a land of lords and kings, of soldiers and high priests. There, it is a time of grim omens.
In Tikal he will meet his equal, and the Hero Twins will go on to fight the most treacherous of gods, to bring about the final inevitable ballgame and the collapse of the Mayan throne. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of their world hangs perilously in the balance.
