Twelve-year old Bella has excitement aplenty at home—soccer games, tiffs with her best friend, and her first kiss—but when she learns that her long-lost father might be in Africa, she drops everything to search for him. Using her magical Mayan pendant, inquisitive Bella travels to Ethiopia and finds herself immersed in a larger mystery. A faded tapestry covered in corrupted symbols, an American tycoon named Askar Karpov, an elite band of medieval knights, and an ancient Mayan prophecy are all related somehow and it’s up to Bella to figure it out in this engaging adventure.


"Action-packed story . . . in a large collection with a big fantasy readership or Hispanic population." —Library Media Connection
