Johnson, who has a passion for studying the ancient Maya, takes readers deep into the world of Mayan culture through the book’s protagonist, Chanla Pesh. Following Pesh’s discovery of her identity as a shaman in Jaguar Princess and her new role as a professor of archaeology, she embarks on a perilous journey in search of the source of Mayan jade in Lost Jade of the Maya. Pesh’s hunt for the sacred jade gets more complicated with the involvement of the gods of the Mayan underworld, and the kidnapping of her daughter, Yash. Along with her husband, Kedar, she must navigate the dangerous jungles of Guatemala while dodging the crime syndicates in time to save her daughter.

To write the two books, the author has extensively researched certain aspects of the ancient civilization. “I learned Mayan legends about jade, how jade is found, and how it is carved. I also studied the Mayan calendar, religion, and legends,” she elaborates.
