BOOK TITLE: Born in the Wayeb: Book One of the Mayan Chronicles In this novel, Na’om is born during the unlucky days of the Mayan Wayeb. She struggles to understand the fearful dreams and visions that have plagued her since birth. When they turn into living nightmares, she must overcome her fears to protect the ones she loves from a powerful adversary. BORN IN THE WAYEB by Lee E. Cart is an excellent fantasy novel for those who want to travel deep into the fascinating world of the Mayans. The cover is interesting and striking, and should attract those readers looking for this type of novel. I like how the author makes plain on the front and back that this is the first of a series. This is important, so readers will be on the lookout for additional books. The back cover copy is intriguing enough to encourage readers looking for this type of novel to purchase. All of the helps – map, glossaries, etc., are great additions. I found them useful as I read through the book. It took me awhile to get into the story, but it was very interesting. The author has taken the time to delve into the setting and knows the characters and background, and I felt really transported into this world. I could get lost in it. As a result, I think readers will definitely be looking for future installments. I think this talented author has a bright future and will develop a loyal reader following.–Judge, 23rd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards. .
