The Lovereading4Kids comment
So often one is drawn in by gimmics on a book or in a book, but not this time. Ignoring the seriously cool and clever fluorescent die-cut flexible slipcase, the publisher Scholastic and the author M G Harris have delivered not just once with the first Joshua Files: Invisible City in 2008 but now in 2009 an even more accomplished rollercoaster of a ride in Ice Shock.
Continuing where Invisible City left off, Josh Garcia remains steadfastly determined to uncover the truth behind his father's death in the jungles of Mexico. Like the thrillers featuring Alex Rider or indeed those featuring Jason Bourne, Ice Shock is full of incredible plot twists and turns, well drawn and utterly believable characters but unlike the aforementioned characters Josh doesn't rely in any way on hi-tech gadgetry.
His coolness under extreme fire - both physical and emotional is so much more heart-pumping than anything else. No wonder Harris' Invisible City was the no. 1 debut of 2008. It wouldn't surprise us at Lovereading4kids if his second novel becomes one of the top titles of the year. Try it for yourself and see what you think.
Ice Shock by M. G. Harris
Josh is back home, trying to resume his normal life without a father and to make sense of his Mayan adventures. But soon it becomes clear that being back in Oxford doesn't mean Josh can escape his destiny. He's even more certain now that his father's death was no accident - and he's starting to wonder if he can really trust his closest allies.
