Mexico, the end of the first millennium CE. Following the collapse of the Mayan civilisation, a rebirth is taking place. Temples and pyramids once again reach towards the sky, markets thrive and wealthy patrons commission imposing works of art.
Lord Smoke Macaw, visionary ruler of Place of the Quetzal Serpent, pursues a policy of non-aggression towards other Maya populations. His contentment reaches its fullest when he meets the princess Lady Rainbow, of obscure coastal New Dawn.
Yet the threat of military conflict suddenly arises, in the form of Lady Death Bat, warrior-queen of Black Stone. She plans a campaign of conquest, to culminate in her becoming ruler of a Mayan empire. Her theft of Quetzal Serpent's sacred Heart of the Jaguar unleashes a series of epic events that will determine the future of the whole region.
Aided by Lady Rainbow and his wise shaman-priest Jungle Turtle, Smoke Macaw must undergo various trials to reassert to all his right to rule. Too, he must maintain constant vigilance over Lady Rainbow, she the target of an obsessive Lady Death Bat.
Will the royal lovers thwart Lady Death Bat's plans, and finally be free to wed on Quetzal Serpent's temple steps?
