The River of No Return by Voelkel - OPTIONAL

Voelkel, J&P The River of No Return, 337 pgs. Egmont, 2012.

Language - G, Sexual Content - PG; Violence - PG; 

After Max's last adventure, he thought he was safe. Unfortunately, his life is in as much danger as ever--even halfway around the world. The Death Lords will not rest until the White Jaguar Stone is in their possession, and now they're making up all the rules. 

I loved following Max and Lola on their adventures through jungles and Mayan temples as well as the awesome Mayan traditions and mythology that comes with that. However, I feel like their challenges became very repetitive and predictable. As long as readers are picking up Max's story strictly for entertainment and not for developed plots and characters, they will be happy with the results. Plus, the book has great pictures.
