About the Author
M.G. (Maria Guadalupe) Harris was born in Mexico City but moved to England as a young child. Before becoming a writer, M.G. worked as a scientist and ran an Internet business.
On regular visits back to Mexico, M.G. became fascinated by Mayan archaeology and made several trips to Mayan ruins in Yucatan and Chiapas. One such trip planted the seed of the idea for The Joshua Files. While recovering from a skiing accident that resulted in a broken leg, she began writing Invisible City, the first book in the Joshua Files series, on a laptop next to the bed.
M.G. is also the author of GEMINI FORCE ONE, a trilogy of action-adventure novels for young adults created with Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson and funded initially via a hugely popular Kickstarter campaign. As M.G. Reyes she has authored EMANCIPATED, a series for older teenagers.

The people and setting are rather believable, and even the fantastical elements are written in such away that you find it easy to buy into also. I got through it in no time, finding myself reading whenever I had a spare too minutes, out came the Kindle - Always a sign I'm enjoying a story when I read at every chance I get.
The ONE downfall of this book, and the reason it loses a star for me, is that I really did not like the main character/protagonist. He was well written, believable, easy to image as a real guy - I simply did NOT like/sympathise with him, he comes across as a bit of an... well, not a nice guy at all. I couldn't "root for" him, or wish him to succeed.
I'd still recommend this story to anyone who's a fan of the genre
The characters are convincing and three-dimensional. As seems to be usual in e-book fiction, there were quite a few typos, and I would sometimes knock off a star because of that, but this story was so good I am happy to follow the majority of reviewers to-date by giving it 5 stars.
Each twist and turn hurls the reader into an unforgettable adventure where anything is possible and nothing is quite what it seems.
With a wonderful ensemble of memorable characters, exotic locales brimming with authentically described detail, and mysterious intrigue that's constantly one step ahead of the reader's best guess, it's impossible to put the book down, and you'll be guaranteed to be left wanting more by the last page.
Looking for a thrilling summer read? You've found it!
