Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is truly action-packed with a very cool twist at the end. I could not put it down once I started reading it. The two lead characters capture your attention from the very beginning of the book and keep it.
Darrell Dougherty

The action scenes are well crafted and the suspense keeps one turning the pages. In Laura and Victor, Anton has created an unlikely action duo that gets the job done and leaves the reader hoping for more adventures. Anyone looking for a suspenseful, action story that is an easy read will enjoy Laura and The Jaguar Prophecy.

This is Anton's first novel. He has done a marvelous job at capturing the reader's attention and keeping it right to the end. The action scenes are well crafted and the suspense keeps one turning the pages. People ,places and things that he knows well are an integral part of the plot and make an enjoyable book even more so. In Laura and Victor, Anton has created an unlikely action duo that gets the job done and leaves the reader hoping for more adventures. Anyone looking for a suspenseful, action story that is an easy read will enjoy Laura and The Jaguar Prophecy.

This book is truly action-packed with a very cool twist at the end. I could not put it down once I started reading it. It includes one of my favorite locations (Grand Cayman). Anton has done a wonderful job bringing in very interesting locations and shows he has done his homework on those locations. He also brings in a little history with the caper, which adds immensely to the believability of the story. The two lead characters capture your attention from the very beginning of the book and keep it. This book is in the same league with books written by Clive Cussler. This is Anton's first fictional book and I can't wait until he writes another.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting with exciting venues. I am looking forward for the next book as I couldn't put this one down until I finished it. There was comprehensive research done for this book as with his others.

Laura and the Jaguar Prophecy was recommended by a friend, it's not the genre of book I typically read. As soon as I read the first page, I couldn't put it down. Without giving too much away, the story is of Laura and Victor, an unlikely pair, who happen upon great adventures. Anton does a great job of bringing their romance to life and describing in detail, the locations they visit. I am now reading book two in the series, Laura and the God Code, with equally good reviews! I can't wait for book three.

A good story, lost treasure, interesting and developing characters, lots of action and a high body count, interesting locations and a well written book. Looking forward to Laura and The God Code.

This book is OK - I actually ordered it by mistake but it wasn't too bad - just not my favorite genre.
