In ancient Mexico, the "End-Time Codex"--prophesizing the world's end in 2012--is entombed. A young Aztec-Mayan slave tells us its story. 

Gifted in math and astronomy, Coyotl rises to king's counselor in Tula, a golden city of milk and honey ruled by the brilliant god-king, Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent of lore.  Gathering artists, scientists and craftsmen, this legendary ruler builds a city that will awe humanity for one thousand years.  But he also faces war, catastrophic drought, betrayal and the rise of an evil death-cult religion.  Instituting the infamous "Blood Covenant," its priests drag thousands of people a year atop temple-pyramids and rip their hearts beating from their chests.  To stop them Quetzalcoatl must defy the flames of bloody civil war.

A thousand years later scientists discover the End-Time Codex.  While struggling to decipher it, they realize their own age mirrors Tula's.  Can they crack the 2012 code and save their world from Tula's deadly fate?

Just babbles on about Aztec and Maya warriors with no apocalyptic meat.
