MG (Maria Guadalupe) Harris was born in Mexico City but moved to England as a young child. Before becoming a writer, she worked as a scientist and ran an Internet business. On regular visits back to Mexico, MG 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, a best-selling series of books for middle-grade readers which was translated into 17 foreign languages. MG Harris. is also the author of GEMINI FORCE ONE, a trilogy of action-adventure novels created with Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson and funded initially via a hugely popular Kickstarter campaign. As M.G. Reyes she has is the author of the EMANCIPATED trilogy, a crime-drama for older teenagers.
I really enjoyed reading Ice Shock. MG Harris has imagined a fascinating world and the plot is really gripping. Fast paced with twists and turns that really keep you turning the pages. I ended up reading it pretty much in one stretch on holiday as once it gets going you have to get to the end!
The writing is accessible for anyone but has a very nice style and some lovely passages of descriptive text sprinkled in as well.
Highly recommended and looking forward to reading the latest installment, Zero Moment, which I have just ordered.
-this book is one of the best books I've read all year -it's very thrilling -it can get you stuck in very quickly -the technology is so advance and it's not even 2045 it's 2012 -I'm gonna read all the books in the series
My nephew aged 11 loves this series of books so far and was avidly reading this one over Christmas. So pleased he is interested in reading. He also finds the Joshua files name amusing, since he is called Joshua!
Having read the first book in the series, (which i would also strongly reccomend) i have waited patiently for this to book to come out for a year and it was well worth the wait! Not at all did i expect such a thrilling read. Expecting alot from this fantastic author i was very hopeful but i did not expect this! From the amazing glowing yellow cover to the back, every page is gripping, great description, fast paced, it has it all. Worth every penny of this great price off amazon. You have nothing to lose.
I reccomend this strongly for anyone who likes action, adventure, mystery in particular, but anyone could fall in love with this book, no matter what the age rating is, you'll completely forget about that as soon as you start. How will MG Harris top this?
There is no other word for it, this book will take you for a ride, to Mexico and back without leaving your room! It is truly astounding how MG manages to produce this after the epicness of Invisible City (The Joshua Files #1) (just make sure you read invisible city first) Definitely one that you can read again and again and again without tiring! Recommended to all my friends :) Also, next one in the series Zero Moment (The Joshua Files #3) definite read after you have read this one.
I found this book to be even better than the first in the series, which surprised me because at the end of the first one I couldn't see where the story could go. But it's definitely worth checking out this one too. I would recommend that you read them in order because it helps to understand the characters that way. This has a deeper mystery and I won't say more than that because I don't want to spoilt it. Just read it!!
