This means that you would be insane to attempt to read it without having thoroughly enjoyed in order the previous seven. You have time to read all eight before the publication of the ninth next year. You can find an introduction to the series and Maddy, Liam, Sal, Bob and Becks in my tribute to it here.
In my opinion, The Mayan Prophecy is the very best of the series so far I have high expectations for the final ninth, hence the so far.
It has an excellent opening. The twists and knots of the series are complicated and Alex Scarrow brilliantly recaps the main clues in the opening chapters, making it all come flooding back. The characters have developed to such a degree that instead of back history we now have delicate relationships and tender observations of the changes that have marked Maddie, Liam and Sal, but also Becks and Bob.
It is impossible not to care very deeply for this group of people and their more than robot support units. The stragglers have gathered over the novels too. Rashim is now joined by the return of Adam Lewis, a very poignant reminder from an earlier novel, and Bertie who has a role of his own to play in history. The revelations of the previous novels have caused a crisis for Sal and its course through the novel is harrowing and really quite traumatic to read.
On the trail of clues to deciphering ancient manuscripts, including the Holy Grail, the team venture into the jungles of the Maya — in the war-stricken s and in its superstitious and deeply different 15th-century past.ordalirea.tk

What the team suffers in both periods is shocking and it is not sanitised. This series makes few allowance for young readers except for a welcome lack of swearing and there are even fewer in The Mayan Prophecy. The discoveries made in the jungle are staggering as the team come closer to discovering the intent of the mysterious Waldstein and the seemingly inevitable end of the world that is expected to take place in The prologue, though, as with all the prologues in the series, hangs over the rest of the novel, throwing us completely off course, contributing to the enigma of Waldstein and his plan to save or destroy the world.
But which is it? The twists and hints and clues are as tantalising and pleasing as ever. The drama and thrills kept me reading. I read the novel in a day.
The Sacrifice Game: Book II in the Sacrifice Game Trilogy
I could not go to bed with it unfinished. He has created a brilliant premise and filled it with wonderful, complicated and endearing characters and has driven it on with the most exciting of adventures and puzzles.
In other words, it gives me all that I want and makes me both long for and dread with almost equal measure the publication of the end next year. TimeRiders appeals to and finds the youngster in me. The books do me good to read them and because they are so superbly written I can trust that they will all be excellent and that the conclusion will do justice to this finest of series.

With the time-travel twist and story shifting back to the starting point in the third novel ; it made for an interesting reading and kind of re-kindled the interest in the novel. Something difficult to sustain across pages …. Post a Comment.
