Though there was some choppy parts of the story ( Spoiler Alert: kids getting there own hotel rooms, really???) and a few typos, the overall story hits the mark and provides a satisfying conclusion to the series.

Good life lessons are taught and a few fun moments happen. All is good.

I think this book was a great ending to the jaguar stones series. I think this book would be for older kids maybe 8 - 13. Its good for both boys and girls and would be great during a fantasy section. I really enjoyed this book and even though I am not too into fantasy books it kept me wrapped in.

Unfortunately, I feel the story "jumped the shark" a bit in this one. I felt that there was a lacking of connection to the Maya mythos in this book, despite the convergence of every Mayan monster imaginable. I enjoyed the little taste of New Orleans and wish we could have explored there longer. I never felt like I received any real historical background on Cahokia, but maybe there isn't all that much known. Overall, a bit disappointed in the finale, as the other books were so rich in Mayan Lore ...more

Maya underworld Lords of Death match up against modern day teens for a action packed series that take readers all over the globe...

Book 4 has the Hero Twins, Max and Lola, dashing around Central America, New Orleans, up the Mississippi and winding up at Fenway Park to play the Greatest Game of all time.

The series is a mix of fact and fiction, for fun reading and opening minds and imaginations.

I started this series with my son when he was 10; he is nearly 12, and has enjoyed the author's sense of

I thought that the book was good and very imaginable with what happens in the book. I hate that this series of the Jaguar stones ends with this book . They Made the Mayan monster very imaginable . When i read this book after i was finished i wished that if only they made this book longer than it would be a longer and better book . The Characters made the book come to life in my head . As i kept on reading it felt like i was in their world . this book really knows how to keep the reader engaged .

Great book to round out the series that shows the hunt for the finish to finding the Jaguar Stones. This book, like the rest, contains pictures. It also is full of wonderful adjectives and verbs that students can begin to learn when they read stories like this for the first time. Although the series is fiction, it is full of Maya myths that can become a great discussion for class.

Hated to see series end. Not disappointed by twists and turns which seemed to flow naturally. Have put on to read again list. Highly recommend for anyone looking for adventure and a learning experience. Mayan culture is brought to life by authors who care. Read extra material at end of book not just for educational value but understanding.

Only wish book was longer. Grand finale was more than anticipated. Characters were outstanding with story line equal to task of keeping reader engaged.
