Editorial Reviews

Library Media Connection
"Would appeal to students who enjoy a fast-paced adventure."
Resource Links
"This fast-paced adventure will capture the reader to the final page...Rose has managed to create another fascinating, suspenseful story, which should be a popular addition to an elementary school library collection."
Children's Literature - Lisette Baez
Josh and Erica find themselves on a wild adventure with their grandfather in a race against time and history to protect the Mask of Kulkaan. They must find the hidden pieces of the mask before the corrupt Crystalline Order gets their hands on it. If they fail, the result will be evil world domination. Josh and Erica find themselves all over the map from Niagara Falls to Manhattan to Mexico. This mysterious quest also takes these two young detectives to the lost city of Atlantis, some 10,000 years back in history. Peril creeps around every corner with Josh and Erica ready to face their fate to save the world. The Doomsday Mask not only makes for a thrilling read but will provide young readers with interesting facts about world history as well as paleontology. This is a classic example of good versus evil and the consequences that follow for those who seek ultimate power. Reviewer: Lisette Baez
