Overview

The Jaguar Stones Book Three, The River of No Return by J&P Voelkel, Pamela Voelkel

A hurricane is brewing in the jungles of the Maya, and the ancient Death Lords are on the warpath.



Across the world in Venice, Italy, hanging out with his blogger friend Nasty (Anastasia) Smith-Jones and eating Pizza Gelato, Max Murphy thinks he is safe from their clutches. But when a rogue octopus pulls him off his gondola and tries to drag him down to the underworld, Max realizes that the Death Lords aren't finished with him yet.



Soon Max is back in Central America and reunited with the only ones who can help him in his battle—Lola, the mysterious Maya girl, and the howler monkeys Lord 6-Dog and Lady Coco. Once again it's up to the four of them to save the world as they fight off mutant cave spiders, zombie warriors, and, of course, the twelve villainous Death Lords.



With the hurricane about to hit land, Max and Lola embark on a one-way journey to danger down the blighted Monkey River. They take shelter in a subterranean hotel, only to stumble upon Death Lord central. Torn between rescuing themselves and rescuing one of the last wild jaguars of the Monkey River region, Max and Lola find themselves drawn into an ever more bizarre series of tests, culminating in a terrifying ballgame that they can never win.



The River of No Return is filled with the same outrageous humor, heart-stopping action, and fascinating details of Maya culture that fans of the Jaguar Stones series have come to love. Readers will be on the edge of their seats as secrets about their favorite characters come to light while Max and Lola try to stop the world from ending . . . at least for now.

About the Author

Jon and Pamela (J&P) Voelkel are the author-illustrators of the Jaguar Stones books, a series of Maya-themed adventures set in present-day Central America. The fast-paced, funny stories center on the friendship between a city boy and a jungle girl—

a mirror image of Jon's wild childhood in Latin America and Pamela's altogether tamer upbringing in an English seaside town. The Voelkels met while working at a London advertising agency and now live in Vermont.



To research the Jaguar Stones, they have explored over forty Maya sites in Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico; canoed down underground rivers; tracked howler monkeys in the jungle; and eaten live termites for breakfast. Jon's most frightening experience was getting lost in a pitch-black labyrinth under a Maya pyramid. Pamela's most frightening experience was being interviewed by Al Roker on Today.

Lola is determined and brave.. the perfect mayan warrior. Max is the red headed, crazy and stuborn kid from boston. Togeather they fight forces only known to the ancient maya. Lola must lead max through the endless fights with the death lords and the god of violent and unnatual deaths. With the help from very unexpected allies they escape to fight another day. But at what cost? Lola lost the only family she had Chan Kan. The info max overheard at the the hotel turned out to be more important than Max had thought when Zia revieled a secret that max would remember forever. Lola was her daughter and even she hadn't known. But her father gave max new family. His uncle was the father of lily. (Thats lolas real name!) For the first time ever lola felt like there were no more secrets she was happy beyond compare. But with the white jaguar going to the death lords Lola and Max are in for more advetures... If Max survives through his own memorial sevice and funeral! Orginized by the death lords no doubt. Max and Lola must face the death lords again. One way or another. - Crazy for mayan mythology.
