‘The End of the World Club‘ is the second book in the Jaguar Stones trilogy written by Jon and Pamela Voelkel. Following the events of the first book, Max Murphy has unwisely made a deal with the twelve death lords of the Mayan Underworld to free his parents. All is well back in Boston…until collection day rolls around for Max.
Now he’s heading off to Spain to meet up with Lola, Lord 6-Dog, and Lady Coco to track down the Yellow Jaguar Stone and bring it back to the death lords…in seven days. It’s a race to avoid death, and everything seems to be against Max Murphy.
Compared to the first novel (The Jaguar Stones: Middleworld), The End of the World Club seems a bit disjointed. The authors had a good pile of ideas to work with, but didn’t transition them together in an easily readable fashion. This didn’t dampen my enjoyment of the story, but it made it more difficult to follow than the first one.
There are a lot of good things in this book, character development, great humor, and A LOT of plot twists. By the end of the book, everything you knew at the start of the story is really messed up. Still, it’s a great book to read, one that I would suggest to teens and up.
The End of the World Club and Middleworld are available on Amazon.com and other retailers.
