Review: It’s a roller coaster ride straight into hell. The action grows until it reaches a crazy ending. Where the surprises, action, and gore don’t let you stop reading. If you like Resident Evil, then this book is for you. I have enjoyed reading it.-Octavi Segarra-
Have you ever wondered in the back of your mind, what if you could make a wish and it came true. That's exactly what happened to Dr. Murray when he went on an expedition with a group of archaeologists to the Aztec ruins. Dr. Murray was a big dreamer with an over active imagination. So even if Dr. Murray were to tell someone that he made a wish and it came true, no one would believe him. Dr. Murray is what you would call the little boy who cried wolf. Dr. Murray was one of seven young archaeologists eager to make a name for himself. The expedition was planned around May. Not too hot and not too cold. The archaeologists that were going on the Aztec expedition were Dr. Murray, Dr. Morley, Dr. Webber, Dr. Sanchez, Dr. Seymour, Dr. Roberts and Dr. Bell.

The skies were blue that day their flight took off for the Aztec Ruins expedition. Dr. Murray sat next to Dr. Bell on the plane. Dr. Murray's over active imagination was already kicking in. Dr. Murray's mouth wouldn't shut up during the flight. Dr. Murray was telling stories about his great uncle Henry who was an arcaheologist. Henry was part of the first archaeologist's that made significant discoveries at the Aztec Ruins. Of course Dr. Bell knew that was a lie because Dr. Bell knew Dr. Murray's uncle Henry was a drunk and the only thing remotely close to him being an archaeologist was digging up bones in his back yard. Dr. Bell finally heard enough of Dr. Murray's far fetched stories and put his headphones on and turned up the music to drown out Dr. Murray's motor mouth.

Dr. Murray said, "I guess I'll just read a magazine."

Dr. Bell just closed his eyes and slept as the music poured through his headphones drowning out any background noise, including

Dr. Murray. The small twin engine plane carrying the seven archaeologists finally landed at their destination, the Aztec ruins. The seven archaeologists got their luggage and were transported to their hotel where they would be staying during the expedition. The archaeologists got something to eat, then got dressed and gathered their equipment for the expedition. The seven archaeologists piled in the van with their equipment and headed to the Aztec ruins to start the expedition. The archaeologists weren't even on the road five minutes when Dr. Murray's stories started flying out of his mouth. The drive to the dig site was about an hour away. The other archaeologist’s weren't interested in Dr. Murray's stories. So they talked amongst each other and talked over Dr. Murray trying to drown out his conversation.

"At last were here," said Dr. Bell.

Dr. Bell was in charge of the Aztec expedition. Dr. Bell and the other six archaeologist's were led to the Aztec ruins by a guide to get them familiar with the ruins. Dr. Murray didn't like playing second fiddle to no one and wasn't really interested in the ruins. Dr. Murray had his eyes set on something much bigger. The something much bigger was three crystal skulls.
