About the Author
Jon Voelkel grew up in Peru, Costa Rica, and Colombia, all the
while dreaming of a boring life in suburbia. Eventually, having survived
monkey stew, an attack by giant rats, and a plane crash in the jungle,
he rolled up his hammock and decamped to Europe.
Meanwhile, growing up in a sedate seaside town in northern England, Pamela Craik Voelkel was dreaming of travel and adventure. The pair met in London, where they both worked in advertising. They went on to help found an award-winning agency, for which Jon was named one of the fifty most creative minds in Britain by the Financial Times. The authors' first book in the Jaguar Stones series, Middleworld, was an Al Roker Book Club pick.
The Voelkels now live in Vermont with their three children. You can visit them online at www.jaguarstones.com.
The epic conclusion to the exciting Jaguar Stones series and a rip-roaring adventure into the heart of America!
With his parents in jail and the Maya Death Lords in possession of all five Jaguar Stones, fourteen-year-old Max Murphy is pretty sure that he'll never get to leave the rainforest.
But the Lords of Death have a problem--a new king calling himself Great Sun claims to have the Jaguar Stones, too. And they want Max to prove the guy's a fraud. Or else.
Now, Max, and Lola, the mysterious girl who befriends him, are off on another wild adventure that will take them from Central America to New Orleans and up the Mississippi to the lost city at the heart of America's past.
But one thing Max should have learned after all of this dealings with the Death Lords -- they never keep their promises.

SBJ Book Society
The SBJ Book Society, Square Books Jr.'s first official book club, is not your average book club. The Phase I group consists of ages 8 through 12 (with some exceptions) and meets the second Friday of every month at Square Books Jr., 6-7 o'clock P.M. The SBJ Book Society will choose, read, and discuss one exciting, quality work of fiction every month. We don't just pick any old book - we compare novels, new and old, and narrow our selection to the most intriguing and relevant titles. SBJ members get a 10% discount off the chosen selection. SBJ Book Society members are encouraged to write book reviews and post them to the Square Books, Jr. website (publishers and authors love this). Sometimes SBJ Book Society has the opportunity to meet and interact with select authors. We also like to talk about school projects and other books that members are reading. Granted--sometimes we get silly and talk about goofy stuff--but we try to stay focused on the task at hand: literary enjoyment and enlightenment. If you are interested in joining the SBJ Book Society or learning more about us please email jill[at]squarebooks.com or junior[at]squarebooks.com or call us at 662-236-2207.
