Read full description of the books The Mayan Codex:Six months ago, Adam Sabir risked his life to find the legendary lost prophecies of Nostradamus. Now he's racing against time to unlock their secrets as the events foretold begin to come true. But he's not the only one looking for answers. Hot on his heels is the Corpus Maleficus, an ancient cabal devoted to placating the Devil. Disfigured since birth, orphaned, and groomed to cruelty and violence by their adoptive mother, the twelve remaining members of the Corpus are deadly competition. Except for one. Lamia has escaped the clutches of her twisted siblings and is on the run with Sabir, following the prophecy to the Yucatan, deep in the heart of Central America. Meanwhile, a volcano erupts in Mexico. A simple man gathers up his precious cargo, and begins his journey to the hallowed Mayan site of the Palace of the Masks.
