2012. The date is set. Time is running out.

The ancient Mayans predicted the End of Days with uncanny precision.

But they also provided the key to staving off apocalypse: a flawless sapphire of incomparable beauty carved into the perfect likeness of a human skull.

For more than four centuries, the skull, and its legacy of dark intrigue and murder, have been hidden, protected by a code few can break.

Now it’s about to be found.....

Find out about 2012 before you see the film" the sticker on the cover announces! Well, the film's blurb is....

As the world faces a catastrophe of apocalyptic proportions, cities collapse and continents crumble. 2012 brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors.


...& if that's what you want, forget this book! Okay, I haven't seen the film but that blurb bears no resemblance in any way shape or form to the book I've just read! (click picture for more info on the film)

The book is set in 2007 & the 1550's, the latter being the far better part in my opinion. I knew from the first couple of chapters I wasn't going to be impressed. The finding of the skull by Kit & Stella seemed unbelievable to me. I know...I know...it's a fantasy tale but for me there has to be something that pulls me in & makes me "believe" at least whilst I'm reading & this just didn't do it. As the book progressed I just didn't care for these characters at all. The adventures of Cedric Owen & Fernandez de Aguilar back in the 1550's were at least more entertaining.

The skulls are supposed to stop Armageddon which is apparently due on 21st December 2012 (eek!)but the whole crystal skull scenario seems full of holes & loose ends. And as for the ending, well that seemed to me to contradict the skull legend....though it's possible in my disinterest I missed a crucial point!!

Guess I'll have to watch the film sometime & see what I make of that - watch this space...
