       Additional Information  
     
      Step into the exotic land of the Classic Maya when majestic cities scatter the jungle like jewels, when lords of The Blood wage taboo wars, and when a small, club-footed boy and his mother become entangled in ancient prophecy.

    BLOOD AND JADE is about Lady Quetzal. When a treacherous noble seizes the kingdom of Balan-Ke and murders all the king's children, she flees into exile with her small son, Pacal, vowing to return and regain the Jade Crown. Exiled from all she loves, hunted by enemies, she must protect her son and unborn child and, at the same time, seek allies for her besieged kinsmen.

    The novel also tells the story of nine-year-old Pacal, whose adventures take readers on a perilous journey through ancient Maya places.

    Based on historic figures gleaned from the translations of Mayan glyphs, BLOOD AND JADE tells of the Bone Clan's dynastic struggle to survive in a land of jungle kingdoms, a time of warlords and heroes, and a world of magic and myth.
