The End of the World Club
Book 2 of the Jaguar Stones series
In this sequel to Middleworld, 14-year-old Max and his friend Lola are on another quest racing against time to outwit the twelve Lords of Death. Their quest takes them to Spain in search of the long-lost yellow Jaguar Stone. They are to return the stone to Xibalba, the Maya underworld. But they are not the only ones searching for the stone. Max must keep his promise to the twelve Lords of Death, keep ahead of the hellhounds sent to watch him, save Lola from Count Antonio de Lana, and keep his parents out of Xibalba.
The book is full of surprises. The intensity gradually builds throughout the last half of the book to an unexpected ending. The comic relief comes from the two characters inhabiting the bodies of the two bowler monkeys, that of Lord 6-Dog and his mother, Lady Coco.
Readers of fantasy will enjoy the adventures and anticipate the third book of the series. The age group recommended is grades 4 through 8, or ages 8 to 12.
