Books Info:

The Oracle of IX Chel free pdf Set in the ancient Maya city of Chichen, The Oracle of Ix Chel tells the story of Jade Skirt, Oracle and High Priestess of the Goddess Ix Chel during a critical time in history when the Maya are turning away from peaceful worship of the goddess and embracing the brutal practice of human sacrifice. Jade Skirt must set herself against the bloodthirsty priests of the War God to save her beloved granddaughter, a young girl destined to continue the sacred lineage and one day rule Ix Chel's women's sanctuary, Cuzamil Island. With the help of her spirit guide, her deep knowledge of rainforest plant lore and a staunch ally who is her forbidden love, Jade Skirt sets off on a tense adventure that will change the course of Maya history forever.
