Review of #53 Jaguar Sun (Jaguar Sun #1) by Martha Bourke

DECEMBER 21, 2012 Will that fateful day destroy our world, or did the Mayans have something else in mind? 

Maya Delaney knows. Unfortunately.

Maya Delaney is just an average sixteen-year-old. She’s busy dealing with exams, her soon to be ex-boyfriend and fitting in.

But Maya’s got bigger problems. She’s hiding a major secret from her dad and having strange visions she can’t control.

In her struggle to figure out who she is, she learns that she is meant to fulfill an ancient Mayan Prophesy and bring forth a New Age on earth.

Will the spirit magic Maya wields be enough to defeat Toltec, an evil society bent on keeping her from her                                                                   destiny?

                                                               Or will that destiny destroy her?

Hey guys! Check out the cover and synopsis of Jaguar Sun above. :D

I've received this book from Martha a long time ago and I've finally got the time to write the review for it. Sorry, Martha!

First of all, the cover....is AWESOME.
I love it when book covers catches my attention. I love the Jaguar at the background and it beautifully complements the theme of the book.

When I first started reading Jaguar Sun, I find it to be a really engaging read because it has the end of the world theme which I really love.

Maya (the main character) is just a highschool girl with normal issues until she saw her nightmare shadowing her. Of course, in this scenario, who wouldn't freak out?

Her grandma helped her alot and revealed that Maya was a shapeshifter.

The story is really nice to read (especially at night!) and I understand her situation really well because Martha wrote it excellently.

You can't help but be connected to Maya but sometimes you just wanna strangle her.
But, of course, you can't expect all main characters to be strong, kick-ass person all the time.

There were a few reason why I love reading this book:

ONE, I love the way Martha twist the Mayan prophecy to work for her. Imagine, it wasn't earthquakes or fires blowing up everywhere. Instead, it was a supernatural war during December 21, 2012.

TWO, I love humorous characters and there's a few of them inside.

THREE, There's shapeshifters! Most books out there are talking about vampires and stuff. Now, I get to read about shapeshifter. :D

In conclusion, (Hahaha, it's like an English essay) if you like Jaguars and twist to prophecies, Jaguar Sun is the book to get.

I'll be reading Jaguar Moon, the book 2 of the Jaguar Sun Series as fast as I can!
