In this book, Cruz and his friends travel to China where they search for clues in an emperor’s tomb. With Nebula spies all around, Cruz wonders who is telling him the truth, but the truth is more complicated than he realizes.
There are a lot of plots twists and major revelations in this book! Around every corner something insane happens and it throws the whole plot into turmoil. The adventure is fantastic, and it’s really interesting to learn about all the historic sites that the characters visit.
I just adore these characters! They each have some good development and I love their different personalities. Cruz is such an amazing main character. He surprises me in every book!
I really enjoyed the writing style, which has both some serious situations and some humor to keep things light. The pacing is excellent. The writing kept my attention and had me turning those pages.
Cruz and his friends travel to a remote area searching for an animal that is supposed to be extinct, but may still exist on an island. The explorers use a fancy camera that looks like a local plant, and takes photos of wildlife when a motion detector goes off.
The artwork is a cool mixture of illustrations overlaid on top of real photographs, and it adds a wonderful dimension and depth to the story. I loved seeing the characters brought to life in the artwork, as well as the beautiful locations they visit. It really makes a special addition to the story!
The fictional technology is really cool. There is sensotivia gel that can sense your emotions, a helmet that lets you talk to whales, and of course, Mell, the honeybee robot drone, is always by Cruz’s side, ready to protect her master. I just love that cute little bee!
