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.
