2010 Debut Author (1) Christy Raedeke


Kristi of Story Siren has an awesome challenge coming up for 2010 called 2010 Debut Author Challenge. In preparation of that I thought I would highlight a few on my list that I cant wait to read!
 
Check out the site Prophecy of Days 
 
PROPHECY OF DAYS, BOOK ONE: THE DAYKEEPER’S GRIMOIRE by Christy Raedeke

 is the story of Caity Mac Fireland, a girl from San Francisco whose parents drag her to an isle off the coast of Scotland to manage some family property. Caity finds that a Mayan relic is concealed there, intentionally left centuries ago by Mayan Daykeepers in an attempt to keep their profound knowledge about the year 2012 alive into the current era.


As she delves into this world of secret knowledge, Caity is helped along by a visiting family friend and Feng Shui master, Uncle Li; a Mayan elder named Bolon; and Mr. Papers, her pet monkey that communicates through origami. A handsome Scottish lad gets pulled into the intrigue, as do several other people with questionable motives and loyalties. Caity must weave together a tapestry of information in order to make her radical discovery, a mystery protected by an elite coterie of power-brokers who influence world events. Caity’s twenty-first century mind is put to the test as she tries to uncover the answer to an ancient riddle while trying to outwit this powerful group that will stop at nothing to control the secret, and her.
