Ah-Puch (pronounced ah-POOCH) is the Maya god of death, disaster, and darkness in J. C. Cervantes’ The Storm Runner. He’s also commonly referred to as “the Stinking One.” Many years ago, he ruled over the lowest level of the underworld, known as Xib’alb’a (pronounced shee-bahl-BAH).
After waging war against the other Maya gods, Ah-Puch was sentenced to an eternal imprisonment at the bottom of a volcano. Conniving, manipulative, and all-powerful, Ah-Puch is a force to be reckoned with. Were he to escape and exact his vengeance, the fate of the entire world could be at stake.
