”Xmucane leads an expedition to Earth to overcome a genetic flaw that threatens the people of Omeyocan with extinction, but she soon finds herself involved in a very personal battle that pits mother against daughter and sister against sister. With the help of the time-traveling Great Serpent Quetzalcoatl, she leaves the Southern Temples to arrive in present-day Machu Picchu as the expedition's time-window closes. …Philadelphia science writer Keihla Benton joins an archeological team at Machu Picchu, [and]she learns the Andean prophesies about 2012 have special meaning for her.”

Chick lit meets science fiction! Although, truthfully, this well-written missive is far beyond the average, slightly denigrating definition of ‘chick lit.’ Time travel, of course; a strange genetic defect; modern times meets an ancient civilization – once the reader becomes accustomed to the rather difficult pronunciation of the futuristic names, the story flows very well. Strong female characters and yes, love and family, easily make this book a fantastic sci-fi choice for any reader.
