Product Description


 Their empires have fallen, but their mythology lives on...
Zanya Coreandero is a seventeen-year-old orphan with only a single friend and no hope for a normal life. Diagnosed with anxiety and night terrors, no one believes her cuts and bruises are a result of an evil entity, and not a brutal case of self-harm.

With the only home she's ever known being the isolated institution--where breakfast is a handful of medications, the psychiatry sessions are mandatory, and her every move is watched--the only relief is her red-haired roommate named Tara, who's more like a little sister than her best friend.

Free will is strong, but destiny is stronger...
When Zanya is kidnapped, she meets a group of gifted Mayan descendants, each with a unique ability. Gone from a nameless castaway to the only hope of mankind, Zanya is forced to make a grueling decision: bond with an enchanted stone and save humanity from rising underworld forces, or watch helplessly as Earth falls victim to a familiar dark deity from her dreams. This time, he's playing for keeps.

A wicked secret hides behind a handsome face...
When Arwan, a dark-eyed timebender, takes interest in Zanya's mission, it's unclear if his intention is to help, or if he's on a hell-bent mission for revenge. Wary of falling for another guy with major secrets and a tainted past, Zanya fights to keep her distance. If only her heart gave her a choice.

If you like Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Xena and Wonder Woman, you will absolutely love Mayan Blood! A band of teen superheroes, mentored by their leader’s uncle, travel in and out of time to Central America, Europe and more to battle the dark side for priceless artifacts and the fate of the world.

Mayan Blood fits several genres: young adult (YA), New Adult (NA), paranormal, romance, magic, time travel, adventure and then some. To me, time travel seems the most challenging to write, with cultural, legal, financial and personal preservation issues and shifting sub-missions between time-place combinations; methods, risks and rewards of time travel and the whole timey-wimey thing, but Dalayne proves herself worthy with this first book in the Stone Legacy series. She deftly weaves characters’ superpowers, personal agendas, relationships, roles in the missions, voices, wardrobes and weapons across time, place and situations, while remaining true to their unique identities throughout. And the villains! They’re in cahoots with each other, have grievances against one another, make deals and time travel with the teen superheroes to various ends. In addition, Dalayne intuitively drips information at just the right flow rate. I never knew who would do what to whom around the next page corner and was frequently surprised, especially at the fight scenes.

Ohio author Dalayne has a knack for creating and solving problems for her characters. Not having a blue police box or flying DeLorean, the team addresses the issue of breathing during time travel by acquiring a primitive, yet highly effective and flexible, biological apparatus. If I told you what it was now, you'd never believe me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough details and use of Mayan backdrop for me. 18 July 2016
By Anne - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was captivated by the cover and my personal love of adventure stories with an Aztec or Mayan backdrop and didn't realize Mayan Blood was a YA story. It had the usual YA problems for me, an insta romance(s), a romance(s) gone bad, histrionics and lack of communication. Mayan Blood also didn't have enough background details for such a complicated setup. Was Zayan in an orphanage or sanitarium? She mentions orphanage, but then says she is patient A696.

The whole set up with the Riyata needed to be clearer, not just for us, but for Zayan too. Why doesn't Renalto just spell it out making the transition for Zayan easier? With the stone having a Mayan history and Belize setting, why are some of the group anglos? Why do they all speak perfect English? Why are some of the books in English? Why don't they tell Zayan what she can do and help her work on developing her powers instead of giving her a stack of books and saying "read" when time is of the essence? Why does Sarian time bend to where he goes? Why isn't the Mayan culture and backdrop used more? It's a bare nod.

Some of what the characters say and do doesn't make sense such as Arwen asking Zayan why she doesn't know anything about the stone. Duh! He knows she was raised as an orphan! Zayan doesn't want others to tell her what to do, but she then tries to direct Tara.

The story has a lot of potential, the writing flowed well and the story moved along. The story ended fine for me, but it very definitely left involved readers wanting more. I wouldn't call it a cliffhanger though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Series Review (books 1-3) 12 March 2016
By Lydia - HEA Bookshelf | MBMB - Published on

Have you ever come across a book or series where there's so much to say and yet, you can't express your feelings?? That's me right now with Mayan Blood, Interlude, and Lights of Aurora by Theresa DaLayne. These books are FANTASTIC, but they are ones where you HAVE to read to understand just how epic they are. There's magic, action, romance, and tons of page-turning scenes where I felt I could not get enough of these characters.

Theresa DaLayne knows how to write books that will hook readers from the very beginning. Her writing is smooth and flows effortlessly. I had no problem whatsoever following the plot lines from book to book. Her character development was top-notch! You grow alongside the characters as they face their different, action-packed journeys. Mayan Blood was a phenomenal start to the series and the books only got better and better. While the series starts off in the YA age group, it certainly doesn't stay there, so please don't let that stop you from checking out these books if you don't normally read YA. I have not had a chance to read book 4, Anarchy, but trust me when I say, I will be doing that SOON. Go one-click!!
3.0 out of 5 stars Does not live up to its promise 23 September 2016
By Diana The Book Nerd - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book's premise held a lot of possibilities, with the inclusion of Mayan mythology and legends. However, it never seemed to live up to those possibilities, as it never seemed to decide what type of book it wanted to be or what audience it was shooting for.

At times, there was a definite feel of a YA adventure novel along the lines of Beautiful Creatures, with Zarya, a seventeen year old who discovers she has posers she never dreamed of when she and her best friend Tara escape the orphanage they grew up to find themselves in Belize. In Belize, Zarya discovers that she is one of a special race created by the Gods of Heaven to protect humanity from the ambitious Gods of the Underworld.

At other times, the forced sexual tension between Zarya and Arman, the 'love interest' with a dark side and Jay her past love who comes back into the picture gives the feel of a NA romance or a sci-fantasy romance. But this goes nowhere, spinning in circles of he loves me, she loves me not, I don't deserve love and so on. This circle is the saddest part, as Arman is the most interesting of the host of 'good' side characters.

The villain is pulled directly from the drawer o' bad guys. Even to his physical description. Dark hair, pointy nose and so on. His goal is very Bond-ian. He wants to control the world by controlling the magical object of the day. His back story is sketchy at best and dull at its worst. He even gives monologues of his evil plans.

The ever shifting POV, from tight third person in the 'voice' of Arman or Zarya to the general third person the novel starts out with doesn't help matters. The 'voices' of Arman and Zarya are tagged, thankfully, at the start of each chapter. Had these tags not existed it would be difficult to understand whose point of view we were experiencing. The same problem exists in the dialogue. There is very little difference in the characters' tones that it is imperative to have the he-said-she-said tags. In excellent books, each character is so well defined, at times we don't need the tags at all. There is only one character, Tia Drina who has a unique tone, but it borders on racist due to the heavy handedness with which that tone is created.

Average writers tell more often than they show. Ms. DeLayne tells way more than she shows. This is most obvious in the fight scenes. There is no tension as it is all told, never shown. Where snappy dialogue could have been used, long-winded explanations are put in instead.

With a retooling and a correction of aim toward a YA audience with more exploration of the Mayan link, this would have been a great book. As it stands, it is fair book that feels far longer than it is.

3 out of 5 stars.
4.0 out of 5 stars good read 10 March 2017
By Loves2Read - Published on

I liked this book. The plot is well thought out. The characters are done well and you definitely know who is who and what is what.
There is not enough background reference. It says Mayan blood, but not enough is done to show the connection. Other wise this book is very good,

I don't mind a book being part of a series, knowing that the story will continue in the next book, but I do not like the way this book ended. Sort of just stops. I would not even consider it a cliffhanger, you can tell as you get towards the end that you will have to read on to continue the story but this book like I said. It just stops. Not even a bit of closure or even the lead on of a cliff hanger. I gave it 4 stars based on what is written it is well done and the story line flows well..
5.0 out of 5 stars great Mayan mythology story 19 April 2016
By Bridgett B. - Published on

Zanya has spent her whole life in the orphanage. She also has bad panic attacks and dreams that are all to real, as in if she gets hurt in her "dream" she gets hurt in real life. But then Zanya and her best friend are kidnapped, and taken to Belize. She is also told that she is the Stone Guardian and that she really isn’t crazy but that she is being hunted by Sarian. It has the paranormal, romance, magic, time travel, adventure and then some.
I really enjoyed reading Mayan Blood, it's A fast paced well written story. I will definitely read the rest of the books in this series. it's not all hugs and kisses and someone is bound to be hurt. But I loved it.
A great time-traveling, paranormal love story.
