Jaguar Stones

JAGUAR STONES J&P VOELKEL

Meet 14-year-old Max Murphy from Boston, and Lola, the quick-witted Maya girl who teaches him to survive in the perilous rainforest. Together, Max and Lola must find the five legendary Jaguar Stones that gave ancient Maya kings their power - and save the world from the evil, cheating Lords of Death.

In The Jaguar Stones, Book One: Middleworld, 14-year-old Max Murphy leaves his comfortable life in Boston far behind and heads for the jungles of Central America in search of his archaeologist parents who’ve gone missing on a dig. Set against a vivid backdrop of haunted temples, underground rivers and Maya magic, The New England Booksellers Council called Middleworld “funny, fast paced and entirely original.”

In The Jaguar Stones, Book Two: The End of the World Club, Max and Lola head for Spain on the trail of the conquistadors. As the rest of the world panics about the end of the Maya Calendar, only Max and Lola can avert the coming doomsday as they search for the Yellow Jaguar and continue their battle against the Maya Lords of Death. Booklist called The End of the World Club  “a fact-packed, thrilling ride. Rick Riordan fans will love it.”

In The Jaguar Stones, Book Three: The River of No Return, Max and Lola are back in the jungles of the Maya and the Death Lords are on the warpath. Can Max, a video-gaming, pizza-loving city boy and Lola, his sassy modern Maya sidekick, save the world one more time? Not if they can’t get past the zombie army, the mutant cave spiders, the mysterious subterranean hotel, and some very dark family secrets.
