Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–6—In this sequel to Middleworld (Smith & Sons, 2007), 14-year-old Max and his friend Lola are on another quest to save his parents from Ah Pukuh and the Maya Lords of Death. This time they have to go to Spain to retrieve the Jaguar Stone from his ancestor's castle and return it to Xibalba, the Maya underworld. On his return from the castle, Max discovers that Lola has been abducted by Count Antonio de Landa, who is working with the Death Lords. Max and the two Howler monkeys that are possessed by the spirits of Maya royalty, Lord 6-Dog and Lady Coco, set out to save Lola from marrying Landa and retrieve the precious stone that was taken by Ah Pukuh. The authors use Maya mythology and terms and add interesting facts about Spain and Spanish culture. This is a fast-paced book, and the action starts right away. There are so many holes and contrivances in the plot, however, that make this story hard to believe, even for fantasy.—Erik Carlson, New York Public Library

From Booklist

Think way back to the 1920s and adventure series like Tom Swift or Bomba the Jungle Boy, and you�ll get an idea of what readers are in for here. The Voelkels� first novel in the Jaguar Stones series, Middleworld (2007), introduced 14-year-old Max Murphy, the only child of world-famous archaeologists. (These are just the kind of work-obsessed parents�prone to taking a kid into a tomb and then forgetting all about him�that an adventuring kid needs.) Mayan Death Lords, a deadline to find a precious stone to stave off the end of the world, and lots of Mayan lore make this a fact-packed, thrilling ride. Rick Riordan fans will love it. Grades 4-8. --Connie Fletcher --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Of course, I loved it! My students third grade through fifth grade couldn't wait to read all the books in the trilogy. Wonderful, wonderful exposure to South America, mythological themes. Brighte/higher reading students appreciated most. Lots of wonderful class/individual/small group activities if you contact the authors.

Max Murphy and his parents are back home in Boston, safe and sound. But Max knows he owes the Mayan death lords a favor in return for rescuing his parents. Though his parents would like to pretend that nothing even happened. When the death lords return, Max is ordered to find the remaining Yellow Jaguar stone and hand it over to them. Lola and a couple of howler monkeys friends follow Max to Spain to help with finding the Yellow Jaguar. But in a small town they find superstitious residents, hellhounds, and the evil Count Antonio de Landa all hindering the teen's search. With the end of the Mayan calendar approaching, there are some who think the end of the world is near. And the death lords have something sinister planned.

The story takes place mostly in Spain, but Mayan folklore is still central and includes the Spanish conquistadors' impact on society. This sequel is no slouch in the adventure department. The danger and suspense is nonstop, with many surprises, along the way. The intensity gradually builds throughout the last half of the book to an unexpected ending. With plenty of humor to lighten the dark and ominous mood, this fantasy adventure series is a fun read for middle readers on up.

Rating 3.5/5

I'll admit I enjoy series books. It's a fantastic feeling to find a book that you really enjoy and then to have even more books similar to that book all set to be read. It takes a lot of the `work' out of going to the library/bookstore. The biggest downside to series book is they tend to be really formulaic.

Thankfully, The End of the World Club did not fall into that `second story syndrome'. Yay! I was pleasantly surprised the authors were able to keep enough of the `flavor' of the first book in addition to having a different unique story. It's really hard to find that balance.

This book had adventure but a different type of adventure. Instead of running through jungles, Max and Lola are running off to Spain, dealing with `city' adventures and solving mysteries. This book felt more like the Percy Jackson books which is awesome. Max gets caught up in many different silly situations: playing for his favorite band, waking up in a coffin, trying to stop a wedding.

While I really enjoyed this book, I didn't love it. I think it's really hard to capture the magic and wonder of the first book again. It is absolutely fun and wonderful but there just wasn't that little something extra to make me love it, you know?

For what it's worth, I recommend reading this fairly soon after Middleworld. I took a few months off and had a hard time remembering everything. The two books are only a few weeks off from each other in time so remembering what already happened is very helpful!

I still highly recommend this series to Percy Jackson fans. I keep telling that to all the kids who come into the bookstore when I'm at work!

Some of my 4th -5th grade readers, girls and boys, good and reluctant readers, have enjoyed this adventure series very much. It's about some "can-do" kids who have to save their archaeologist parents who are off studying the ancient Mayans....

My son is really loving this series. He's read them all multiple times and if he needs a book to grab while we run errands, this series is the one he wants. He laughs when reading it, and says the story is fun and captivating.

I was very excited to read the second book of the series, as the first book was excellent. The second book was even better. It had mystery, action, and humor. This is a great book for teens and young adults. I enjoyed this book a lot.
