Mystery of the Maya by R. A. Montgomery takes YOU on a daring adventure to Mexico to find your lost friend! 9-12 year old readers can travel back in time to search for their friend Tom, becoming a great Mayan warrior or the next human sacrifice - or they can remain in the present, becoming a double agent fighting a modern revolution!

Choose Your Own Adventure Mystery of the Maya is an interactive adventure book in which YOU decide what happens next.

Your best friend Tom goes missing on assignment in Mexico, and you have to help find him! Do you take a potion that sends you back in time to the world of the Maya civilization or search for him in the present day? What secrets does Chichén Itzá hold? Can you trust Manuel, a well-known guide in the area? Can you even trust your own dreams?

For readers who enjoyed other titles from the Choose Your Own Adventure series including: The Abominable Snowman by R. A. Montgomery, Journey Under the Sea by R. A. Montgomery, and Beyond Escape! by R. A. Montgomery.

About the Author:

R. A. MONTGOMERY attended Hopkins Grammar School, Williston-Northampton School and Williams College where he graduated in 1958. He pursued graduate studies in Religion and Economics at Yale and NYU. Montgomery was an adventurer all his life, climbing mountains in the Himalaya, skiing throughout Europe and scuba-diving wherever he could. His interested included education, macro-economics, geo-politics, mythology, history, mystery novels and music. He wrote his first interactive book, Journey Under the Sea, in 1976 and published it under the series name The Adventures of You. A few years later Bantam Books bought this book and gave Montgomery a contract for five more, to inaugurate their new children s publishing division. Bantam renamed the series Choose Your Own Adventure and a publishing phenomenon was born. The series has sold more than 260 million copies in over 40 languages. He was married to the writer Shannon Gilligan. Montgomery died in November 2014, only two months after his last book was published.

Review:

Choose Your Own Adventure titles have sold at least 250 million copies around the world since the series debuted with Bantam Books in 1978, and anyone who remembers reading them probably knows why. You were the protagonist. When you're 9 years old, that's a pretty exhilarating feeling. Your fate depended on the choices you made at the bottom of each page. Each installment had dozens of endings, and the more rabid fans (including yours truly) wanted to experience every one. --The Associated Press

COULD WE BE NEXT? Your friend Tom disappears on assignment in Mexico searching for clues to the sudden collapse of the Mayan civilization. Meanwhile a pool of human blood appears at a Mayan ruin where Tom was last seen alive. What is behind Tom's disappearance? Has he traveled back in time? Or are the practices of the Maya alive and well, including human sacrifice?" A large spacecraft hovers over the pyramid. "What's happening Manuel?" you ask, hardly believing what you see.
