The Sacrifice Game

(2012)
(The second book in the Jed DeLanda series)
A novel by

 
In this mind-bending, stunningly inventive, and brilliantly researched sequel to In Courts of the Sun, one man holds the key to saving the world from the coming apocalypse . . . or ensuring its complete destruction.

In Brian D'Amato's first novel, In the Courts of the Sun, a team of scientists sent math prodigy and Mayan descendant Jed DeLanda back in time to the year AD 664 to learn how the ancient Maya played a powerful divination game to predict the apocalypse in 2012. But after arriving in the body of a willing human sacrifice instead of a Mayan king, Jed's experiences led him to the fateful decision that rather than avert the apocalypse, he must ensure instead that the world ends.Using his knowledge of the divination game, Jed sets in motion a series of events that will bring about the destruction of humanity, ending the world's pain and suffering once and for all. But before the plan can be completed, the organization that sent him into the past discovers his intention and devotes every resource to stop him.Taking readers back to the dizzying action of ancient times,The Sacrifice Game is a breathtaking odyssey in which Jed must survive bloody wars, ruthless leaders, shifting alliances, and unspeakable betrayal to learn about the Game, before his time in both the ancient Mayan empire and the present day runs out.
