    According to Maya legend, December 21, 2012, will mark the end of the world as we know it. Is it myth...or will their prediction become reality? Archaeologist Lina Taylor has devoted her life to studying ancient Maya artifacts, splitting her time between digs in South America and the classroom teaching college students. But the professor's structured, academic life is about to spin out of control. Some extremely valuable and important Maya artifacts have gone missing. Are the culprits fanatics determined to create chaos and usher in annihilation?

    Elle in the Great NorthWest says: "Mayan Calendar adventure/romance-average"
    "Awful narration."

    What would have made Beautiful Sacrifice better?

    A better narrator.


    If you’ve listened to books by Elizabeth Lowell before, how does this one compare?

    Difficult to concentrate on the story due to poor narration. I generally love Elizabeth Lowell's books and should have read this one instead of listening to it. First half of the book was boring although I had a difficult time concentrating on the story.


    What didn’t you like about Richard Ferrone’s performance?

    Monotone, hardly any inflection in voice. He is not an engaging narrator. I will not buy any book performed by him in the future no matter who writes it.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Last half of the book was good.
