Waiting on Wednesday: Prophecy of Days, Book One: The Daykeeper's Grimoire

Waiting on Wednesdays is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

I haven't done a WoW in a while, but I had to spotlight Prophecy of Days - Book One: The Daykeeper's Grimoire by Christy Raedeke.

PROPHECY OF DAYS, BOOK ONE: THE DAYKEEPER’S GRIMOIRE 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. 

Prophecy of Days will be released May 1, 2010

My Wife bought the book last Saturday when we met Christy at a book signing event. Nikki finished it quickly and is in a tizzy because she is going to have to wait quite a while for Book 2. Seems this story is just TOO good to have to wait for.
I started Prophecy of Days and found myself reading far into last night. Had to force myself to stop at a new chapter, or I would have been up all night!!
Christy Raedeke knows her stuff. With some 25 years of researching the very subjects entwined in this tale, I can say that the author is a Very Savvy individual...and I'm only 2/3 through the book!
Already anxious for the next installment.
