Alec Devlin: Empire of the Skull

Formats & editions

An action-packed adventure, which will keep kids on the edge of their seats.

Mexico, 1924.

Restless sitting around at his father's hacienda, waiting for adventurer Ethan to arrive, sixteen-year-old Alec and his faithful valet Coates head out into the wilderness in search of an ancient archaeological site . . . only to discover that Mexico is every bit as perilous as The Valley of the Kings.

Pursued by ruthless bandits, involved in a plane crash in the middle of remote rain-forest and finally an unwelcome guest in a lost Aztec city where the inhabitants still practice the rituals of human sacrifice, once again Alec must use all of his skills and stamina to survive.

Praise for Alec Devlin: Empire of the Skull

“...a cracking tale which combines sureness of touch with a great sense of timing...Don't pick up this book unless you've definitely got time to finish it. It demands to be read at one sitting. Adventures don't come much more gripping than this.”

Phil Hewitt, The Chichester Observer Online

“Involving and wholly and wonderfully implausible.”
