The date is set. Time is running out.

In a spellbinding blend of history, myth, and science, bestselling novelist Manda Scott unleashes a thriller that sweeps from the secrets of the Mayans to the court of a sixteenth-century queen to a shattering end-times prophecy.

Ancient lore predicts the end of the world with chilling precision: 21 December 2012. But the prophecies provide the key to stopping Armageddon: a flawless sapphire carved into the perfect likeness of a human skull.

One woman has inherited the skull’s legacy of deadly secrets, intrigue, and murder. Can she crack the only code that could save the world?

From the Back Cover:

21.12.12 The date is set. Time is running out.

Hidden for four centuries, a crystal skull of exquisite beauty has just been found by Stella Cody, who also inherits its legacy of dark secrets, intrigue and murder.

Facing an increasingly implacable enemy, Stella and her lover, Kit, struggle to crack the code that hides the skull’s intended resting place.

Their search takes them from the intellectual rigour of Cambridge University to the untamed wildness of England’s prehistoric stone circles.

But time is against them, and they have only days – hours – left to uncover the secret that may yet save the world.
