Publisher’s description:

"Lila and Jay Cooper have joined their dad on a mission to the jungles of Central America, where a group of American treasure hunters have already become the victims of the deadly curse of Toco-Rey. Before Dr. Cooper can solve the mystery, his children are kidnapped and his integrity is put to the test. What price will he pay to get his children back? Is the treasure in the burial tomb of Kachi-Tochetin really worth more than gold?
Follow the Coopers as they explore unknown ruins, plunge through dangerous jungles, face hostile natives, and battle ancient evil forces. Will their courage and faith in God bring them through?"


My thoughts:
 Peretti rises again!  This guy is a great writer...no joke.   Creepy, chilling, wonderful, adventure, all packed into one 160 paged book.   Some things seemed unreal, but it was all interesting, and made me go, "Why not?".
Cons:
 None.
Pros:
 I can't list every single pro.  There is to many.
Language:
It says a Spanish guy "Cursed in Spanish"  but it doesn't say WHAT he said.
Romance and sexual content:
 None.
 Violence:
They stumble upon a dead guy, Something happens to Dr. Cooper that makes him go crazy, and he has to fight against wanting to kill some people, he triumphs.  Lila, Jay, and Tomas all have the same problem with the same affects.  But they never do kill anyone.   The main bad guy is a terrorist weapons dealer.
Drugs and drink:
 None.
Ratings:

Frank E. Peretti is an awesome story teller. I've read 3 in the series now, and although they are under my age level, I still find them fascinating!  I give this awesome book a:

While reading this, I kept going, "There is no such thing, but why couldn't it be real, and still undiscovered?".  Another Bravo for Peretti!
