Scholastic's multi-platform mega-adventure through time continues!

History is broken, and three kids must travel back in time to set it right.

The seas will boil. The earth will tremble. The Cataclysm is coming, and young adventurers Dak, Sera, and Riq are stranded thousands of years in the past, where they can do nothing to prevent it. Their only hope lies with the ancient Maya, a mysterious people who claim to know something about the future. Can the Maya's prophecies be trusted? Can they provide the key to changing the future? The kids aren't certain, but they know one thing right away: There is more to these ancients than meets the eye.

Each book comes packaged with a full-colour, collectible Hystorian's Guide-your key to unlocking an all-new online adventure starring Dak, Sera, and Riq. You'll need all of the Guide's hints, secrets, and codes to navigate the richly immersive worlds of Revolutionary Paris and other soon-to-be-revealed locations in a totally unique, story-driven gaming experience.

Fix the past. Save the future.

wow, the first book was great, the second was okay, but this one is just terrible. I'm basically giving up on this series

While I'm still enjoying the story arc, I'm finding myself a bit frustrated that the stories continue not from book to book, but from one book to the online game and then they jump back to the next book. This means that anyone who hasn't played the game might feel like they're missing out on some important information that's been revealed only online. Hoping they'll do a companion book to fill in the gaps for those who don't play the game!

Kdmullerspy, you mean that this book goes very deep into Sera's and Riq's remnants. I have yet to see where their remnants originated.(Although I already know from the previous book that Riq's remnants are that he's not supposed to exist at all.)

Awesome!!!!!They really went deeply into the psyche of Sera and Riq; whereas Dak was just ...well... Dak(If you've read the books then you'll know what I mean). I love this series!!!!!

You're going to be special, Sera. I can see it in your eyes. But you must understand, there is always a price to pay for being special. You must have strong shoulders. Do you have strong shoulders, Sera?
