A PARALLEL REALITY WHERE 'GOD SPARED MEXICO' - BUT FROM WHAT?
After his family learn the truth about the ancient prophecy that could spell doom for the planet, Josh Garcia knows he can't carry on living in the outside world. He and his mother move to the 'invisible city' where an ancient society is determined to find the solution to saving the world.
If they can't find the solution, this is how things will end: on 22 December, an electromagnetic pulse will blast through the atmosphere. Technology will fail. Civilization will fall apart. The key to survival lies in a secret Mayan book, the Ix Codex, protected by Josh and fellow members of the society.
But someone has altered time. To put it back on track, Josh must unravel history itself; he must travel to the Golden Age of the ancient Mayan past and face the dangers of a dark, parallel reality.
The fourth and penultimate book in M.G. Harris's best-selling Joshua Files series.

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, a best-selling series of young adult books which was translated into 17 foreign languages.
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.
"Dealing with time travel and its inherent problems, such as how much change is too much, Dark Parallel is pure adrenaline. A great new way of bringing history to life, the Joshua Files mixes historical detail with modern technology and time travel. It has also become interactive, not only with the Joshua Files website, but also the fact that the Mayan prophesies really do exist and concern a time that is fast approaching us. A well-written, fast-paced read that will appeal to anyone with an interest in history." Inis Magazine
