"One of the rare sequels that improve upon the original. Touches of science fiction and fantasy add flavor to the action and adventure, as do Borgesian allusions and a charming tale of two long-dead lovers. A good bet for the thrill-seeking middle school crowd." Kirkus Reviews
"It's the Mexican and Mayan flavourings that give Harris's adventure yarn that bit of extra bite as she weaves a satisfyingly twisty plot..." James Lovegrove, Financial Times
"Questions of self-belief and enquiry into that which is preordained provide food for thought that complements the furious action in this adventure. An enthralling, satisfying read that will leave its audience hungry for future instalments." Jake Hope, Books for Keeps
About the Author
M.G. (Maria Guadalupe) Harris was born in Mexico City but moved to England as a young child. Before becoming a writer, M.G. worked as a scientist and ran an Internet business.
On regular visits back to Mexico, M.G. became fascinated by Mayan archaeology and made several trips to Mayan ruins in Yucatan and Chiapas. One such trip planted the seed of the idea for THE JOSHUA FILES, a best-selling series of young adult books which was translated into 17 foreign languages.
M.G. is also the author of GEMINI FORCE ONE, a trilogy of action-adventure novels for young adults created with Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson and funded initially via a hugely popular Kickstarter campaign. As M.G. Reyes she has authored EMANCIPATED, a series for older teenagers.
