"Podrug’s novels tend to lean heavily on outlandish premises tinged with mysticism, whether they involve searching for lost Tibetan treasure (Frost of Heaven, 2000) or time-traveling back to New Testament Galilee (Dark Passage, 2004). His latest follows suit, revolving as it does around the notion of Aztec deity Quetzalcoatl awakening in 2012 from a long slumber in an apocalyptically bad mood. When archaeologist Caden Montez visits the Mesoamerican ruins of Teotihuacán, the supposed Mayan doomsday of December 21, 2012, has passed uneventfully, except for an inexplicable fish die-off in the Gulf. Then, in rapid succession, Caden is kidnapped by Mexicans wishing to sacrifice her, drugged by government agents, and rescued by a cult of alien abductees. Her biggest surprise, however, comes when her path intersects that of an ancient Mexican Indian ballplayer, mysteriously transported to the modern day.
Podrug’s new yarn may get lost in the glut of 2012-themed novels and movies now flooding the marketplace, but it’s a worthy addition to the subgenre, if only for its fascinating peek at ancient Mesoamerican culture." --Booklist
