A NOVEL ABOUT THE ANCIENT MAYA
Set in the ancient Maya city of Chichen, The Oracle of Ix Chel tells the story of Jada Skirt, an oracle and priestess of the goddess Ix Chel during a critical time in history when the Maya are turning away from peaceful worship of the goddess and embracing the brutal practice of human sacrifice. Jada skirt must set herself against the bloodthirsty priests of the war god in order to save her beloved granddaughter, who is destined to continue her sacred lineage and one day rule Ix Chel’s women’s sanctuary, Cuzamil Island. With the help of her spirit guide, her deep knowledge of rain forest plant lore, and a staunch ally who is her forbidden love, Jada Skirt sets off on a tense adventure that will change the course of Mayan history forever.
