My personal acid test of a novel's success is how involved I become in the story. Jaguar Sky kept me thinking and re-thinking the interconnections between characters and possible outcomes to the very end. My only complaint is that I wanted even more of the story. Highly recommend!

I just finished reading Jaguar Sky. I really loved the book. I have always been interested in the Maya culture. Maddie is a college student on an archeological dig to Belize. The story has many twisted and turns. I like the characters they are believable and you really care about them.
Maddie has been haunted by dreams and she hopes to find some of the answers on this project. There are both good guys and bad guys but nothing is what it seems. I like the mystical aspect as well as the tension in the relationship between characters. One of the strong points that I like about Maddie is that she is independent. She is not a damsel in distress needing to be saved by a man. I enjoyed watching her character evolve and develop as she finds her confidence and her destiny. The author has been to the country herself so the added tid bits of information about the area and the people just add even more interesting facets to the story.
I did not purchase this book from Amazon but received it as a gift.

Laura's writing is good, neat and concise - something I always need from a book. The plot evolves nicely too although i would have liked a deeper involvement much earlier in the story but I can see why she worked it the way she did and it does work. The characters sound like people, or parts of people, she knows and they all stand up and are consistent, congruent. I find myself liking the Maya people and finding them interesting, deep and sensible while wanting to slap all of the American characters at times LOL but that doesn't stop the page-turning quality of the story. I'm not a YA fan but this bridges the gap between young adult and adult, I kept on picking it up and reading whenever I got the chance, just had to get to the end.
The end is satisfying and not happy-ever-after which is very good, it's real and still has problems, things that will be difficult. I very much like it that Maddie grows, and grows up, setting her feet firmly on the adult path and understanding the responsibilities she takes on. There's a good opportunity for a follow-up book here and I'd very much like that :-)
