Will the world end on 21st December 2012? Will the fabled Crystal Skulls come together to teach mankind how to transcend the end? – When Stella and Kit find a crystal skull deep in a previously-unexplored cave they have no idea the danger it carries with it….
They find out soon enough when Kit is pushed over an edge and Stella is left to find out the mysteries of the Skull. Meanwhile, in Tudor times, Cedric Owen, skull-keeper, must flee the reign of Bloody Mary and he finds himself in the Mayan lands, where the jaguar-woman is the only person alive who can tell him what his skull is for – and what he must do – for he is the last of the skull keepers for four hundred years.
Set in present-day and Tudor Cambridge, with excursions to pre-invasion Mexico, 2012 – The Crystal Skull explores the Mayan end-of-world prophecies that say the end of this age will take place on 21/12/2012 – and the accompanying prophecies that say there are 13 life sized crystal skulls and that, when brought together, they will help us to transcend the end-catastrophe.
