Tucson Author Publishes New Book
Tucson, Arizona October 23, 2012 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) "The Journey of a Mayan Princess," a new book by Nellie Hummel, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
A powerful empire has risen in the middle of the vast jungle and has survived the test of time and natural calamities. It is in this empire where a princess, despite her royal status and being the emperor's only child, experiences the kind of childhood other children her age have. Her curiosity and love for adventure has led her to various discoveries, one of which earns her a very special friend-an eagle who devotes its life to protect her from the danger that looms over her and her kingdom.
The empire's peaceful and prosperous existence is threatened by the emperor's evil cousin who wants the empire to himself. With the evil cousin willing to even sacrifice the princess's life to feed his insatiable greed for wealth and power, not only the entire Mayan kingdom is in danger, but also the prophecies of their ancestors that they need to fulfill until the cycle of time ends and another era begins.
