The 13th Cycle a Review
The 13th Cycle, written by Sabrina Riccci, is the story of how the Mayan calendar was stopped from destroying the world in 2012. This tale takes you back to the beginnings of this calendar and the destruction it brought during the times of the Mayans.
In the present, Amara Randall is a college student who is seeking the truth. When she sees all the panic created by the Mayan calendar predictions, she decides to seek out the truth about this calendar and discover what it truly says. Her grandfather had done research on the Mayan calendar in Mexico and ultimately committed suicide while he was there.
Amara decides to use her investigation and write an article for her school newspaper about what she finds out. Once she starts to discover things about this calendar, she begins to receive threatening notes telling her to stop. Her apartment is even broken into and ransacked. Someone wants Amara to quit searching. And someone is watching her. Will this person successfully stop Amara? Or will Amara discover the truth?
Mahaway is a young scribe in ancient Maya. She and a friend of hers, as well as most of the other Mayans, are unhappy with their new, bloodthirsty king. She and her friend, along with another new-found friend, make the decision to destroy this calendar that their new ruler is so set on using to conquer more cities. Obviously the calendar wasn't destroyed. What stops Mahaway and her friends from destroying it?
This book isnt that long and can easily be read in one day. The author weaves a great, entertaining tale. I believe this novella could easily be expanded into a much longer, and just as entertaining, book. The chapters switch back and forth from the present to the time of the Mayans, and this only makes the story harder to put down.
If you enjoy the history of the Mayans, you would definitely enjoy this book. The story is exciting, the characters are believable, and you learn a lot about the Mayans.
