The Seventh Sun (The Age of the Seventh Sun Series)
The Chicome people are living in the age of The Seventh Sun. The world has ended six times before and only the blood of the emperor can cause the sun to rise each day. Unfortunately, the emperor has just passed away, so his son Ahkin must now rise to the task. However, he cannot become emperor until he has chosen a wife. Each of the six city-states must send one of their princesses to compete to be his bride. While Ahkin’s blood controls the sun and light, each of these princesses possesses their own powers. Mayana can control water, but it might not be enough to save her. Only one can be chosen as empress, while the rest will be sacrificed to ensure a long reign for the couple. Mayana will have to decide how far she’ll go to save herself and those she loves.
Reading this book is like time-traveling to the Inca and Mayan empire. You are completely immersed in the culture with historical accuracy. Every moment puts you on the edge of your seat as you wait to see what the fate of Mayana and the other princesses will be as well as the Chicome people as their sun appears to be fading. I can’t wait for the next book!
