Jake Atlas and his family are on the run, hunted by international police while chasing the mysterious People of the Snake to stop them from hiding the secret history of humankind. But when the family’s friend, Sami, is poisoned, the People of the Snake force the Atlases to work for them in exchange for a cure. Their mission: to locate a legendary lost city and the tomb of the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl in the jungles of Honduras – home to bandits, big cats, tarantulas and crocodiles. But the family’s greatest enemy is themselves, as their squabbles threaten to get them into even deeper trouble.

In order to reach the tomb, the family must survive ancient traps, jump out of a crashing plane, escape a jaguar’s lair, climb a cliff of skulls, jump over a huge waterfall and escape from a trap of swinging blades!

A brilliant heart-thumping sequel to the increasingly popular Jake Atlas and the Tomb of the Emerald Snake, this is another high-octane adventure, full of laughs and high-tech gadgets, from an award-winning author.

Fast Moving

Think Indiana Jones with a touch of junior James Bond. The Atlas family are being hunted by the police whilst also attempting to scupper the plans of the People of the Snake. Unsurprisingly things get a little hairy & complicated.

I love the Jake Atlas books. Although the family are not quite a "normal " family, they do have normal squabbles and get on each others nerves. However when the crunch comes they pull together.

The book is full of action, plenty of techy stuff and some humour thrown in. Great to read and plenty to keep a child's attention.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
