Comments The Visionary Mayan Queen: Yohl Ik’nal of Palenque

  • Toni Osborne

    Book 1 in the Mists of Palenque SeriesSet in Palenque (ancient Lakam Ha) during the Maya Classic period (250-900 CE), this is the first of four story of Ancient Mayan Queens. Yohl Ik”nal is the first woman who ruled at the height of the Maya civilization.It is evident the author’s passion with the Mayan civilization, its culture and cosmology. It must have taken Ms. Martin intense research as well as numerous queries with indigenous elders in order to write such a detailed account. The saga [...]

    As a historian I'm always interested in attempts to popularize history using fiction. It can be well done -- full characters, engaging plot, clear historical background that doesn't get in the way of a story, and pushing the boundaries of what we know by filling out events with logical possibilities. It can be poorly done -- stereotypical characters, a lot of telling not showing events, long sections expounding historical information instead of the characters simply living out the events, and to [...]


  • Alexandra Engellmann

    This is the second book of this author that I’ve read. I have to say, after the first book (it was actually the third in the series), this time I was fascinated enough with the Mayan history to look up every famous name and learn more about these ancient rulers. Archeology has always been of interest to me, and seeing a photograph of a real location or a tomb really makes it more enchanting. However, I wouldn’t say that I’m very familiar with the Mayan culture, and I think for a book to dr [...]


  • Nanksy

    Beautifully written, and extremely well researched, I think. The author has a fine grasp of words and puts them together skillfully, but unless you are fascinated with the complexities of the Mayan calendar it is a hard read.There is not much story. Most of the book is a complicated study of the Mayan system of government, their accurate method of measuring time , and a great deal of mysticism. I found myself skipping over many pages of time calculation and looking for the story about the leadin [...]


  • Heather

    a short book. I really enjoyed the first half about the life of the ancient Mayan queen, good historical details. The second section set during the modern archaeological dig had less plot development.


  • Robert Mitchell

    Hot cocoa, corn cakes and venison stew. The food enjoyed in Leonide Martin’s remarkable The Visionary Mayan Queen: Yohl Ik'Nal of Palenque, the first book in her Mayan trilogy, Mists of Palenque, is well worth the price of admission all on its own. The compellingly appetizing descriptions of food are not only fun to read, they also illustrate this historical novel’s four main strengths. Yes, FOUR. 1. Unless we are ourselves scholars, readers of historical fiction must summon a measure of fai [...]


  • Nikki

    I couldn't get through this book. I was interested in the premise, Maya historical fiction centered around one of the few queens, but the writing was just too hard to trudge through. The first few typos were tolerable, but then there were more. The author obviously knows the history well, but the efforts of wrap the facts into smooth story are awkward and unsuccessful. The writing is stilted and frequently overwrought or cringe-inducingly cliche. I enjoyed some of the imagery and historical cont [...]


  • Philip Dodd

    I found The Visionary Mayan Queen: Yohl Ik'nal of Palenque by Leonide Martin to be an interesting book. It made me feel sad, in a way, for it spoke of a culture that is gone, forever. I enjoyed it most when it concentrated on Yohl Ik'nal and the journeys of her spirit. Being interested in mythology, it was amazing for me to acknowledge that the Jewelled Tree of Mayan myth was like Yggdrasil, the world tree of Norse myth. There were times when the book became less like a novel and more like a his [...]


  • Yvonne

    "The Visionary Mayan Queen: Yohl Ik'Nal of Palenque" is magically written. The novel achieves three things, first, the story takes the reader through a fascinatingly entertaining tale, second through the world of the Maya and lastly the scenery descriptions allows the reader to become an eye witness to the story. Taking a reader through the world of the Maya is no easy task, Ms. Martin, not only managed to educate the reader about the Maya but she made the education incredibly entertaining and s [...]


  • Patricia

    The Mayan civilization is fascinating but I will admit that I don't know very much about the pre-Columbianor pre-conquest history of the area. I was drawn to the idea of a female ruler and the author introduced a strong, wise woman who put duty to her people first. We see glimpses of the daily life of the people-- food, flora, religious practices, clothing, architecture, and the Mayan calendar. Ms. Martin's book is well research and her notes at the end provide additional information. I enjoyed [...]


  • Mary Glass

    A rare woman of visionA rare woman of visionSo much new information, research and history. Add to that a wide cast of credible characters, both major and minor. Taking up the challenge of depicting an era near the end of a civilization. I did find the segue to more present times more distracting than informing. Really enjoyable.


  • Merredith

    I got this book for free on amazon. I enjoy historical fiction and I enjoy the Mayan culture, but I could not get into this book. The writing style didn't flow. It read like a text book that wasn't even true, since it's fiction. It may be good for some people, not for me. I gave up.


  • Ginger Bensman

    Any student of Mayan history and culture will find much to appreciate in Leonide Martin’s The Mists of Palenque. Yohl Ik’Nal and her moment in history have been painstakingly researched and vividly imagined. The Mayan world, its myths, temples and lush jungles are all here.


  • Tessa

    I found this glimpse into Mayan life fascinating. Sometimes the author gets a little lost in the explanations of architecture, history, etc, and the movement of the story gets bogged down.


  • David Gortner

    Great book. It really transported me back to the land of the Ancient Maya. Great plot and story.


  • Linda S Adams

    I have set this book aside for now . The names and locations and descriptions in the Maya language comprised so much of each page that it detracted from the flow of the story
