Book Description

Includes all Three Books:
The Captive
The Feathered Serpent
The Amethyst Ring

What would you do if everyone thought you were a god?

Young Juliá́n Escobar is traveling to the New World to spread the gospel to the newly discovered Mayan Empire when a hurricane strikes his ship, scattering its contents to the four winds and leaving Julian as the sole survivor. After struggling ashore, he encounters a young Mayan woman who is shocked at his presence.

Soon he learns why. Centuries ago the fair-skinned Mayan god Kukulcá́n—the Feathered Serpent—sailed away with the promise that one day he would return. With his very life at stake, Juliá́n does the unimaginable: he begins to impersonate this returned god.

PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY:
"Spellbinding...unforgettable adventure."

KIRKUS REVIEWS:
"Swift and stunning, inevitable and unexpected."

NEW YORK TIMES:
"There's no better introduction to the rich and remote Mayan culture than through such a well-told tale."

SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL:
"Juliá́n's transformation from insecure human seminarian to pretend god [is] remarkable."

This exciting collector's edition contains all three books in the Seven Serpents Trilogy: The Captive, The Feathered Serpent and The Amethyst Ring.
