I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
Al and Ricky Lyons take a family vacation to Guatemala, a place loved by Ricky's mother before cancer took her away much too soon. What they had planned to be a fun vacation of surfing, sun and sightseeing turns into a race against time and a fight for their lives when Ricky comes across an ancient Mayan tablet. The tablet is wanted by the Santos Meurtos, and they will stop at nothing to get it.
This is a great edge of your seat dystopian novel. I was drawn in immediately and could not put it down. You can easily connect with the characters and the father son relationship is so realistic. My favorite character was Ricky. Even though he had no idea how he was going to save his father, his determination drove him. You could also see him grow as a person during his trek across the country to rescue his dad. This was an wonderful story of faith and courage. Even if you don't read dystopian novels, this book takes you on an amazing cross-country adventure you're sure to enjoy.
