Michael Thal’s Koolura series of books features a heroine with super-abilities who discovers more about her powers as the books progress. But what’s the third book, the time-traveling Koolura and the Mayans, about?
Koolura, a girl with extraordinary psychic powers, is back again with pal Leila. The duo is off to Mexico for Koolura’s father’s wedding. When touring a Mayan archeological dig, the girls uncover a mysterious device that hurtles them 2000 years back in time. They soon discover aliens from the planet Aquari living amongst Mayan natives. Are these Aquarians planning to take over Earth? And can Koolura and Leila stop them in time?

In the third book in the Koolura series, best friends Koolura and Leila, neither of whom are “ordinary girls,” but instead are quite extraordinary, find themselves in a truly extraordinary position. Traveling to Mexico to attend Koolura’s father’s wedding, the girls pay a visit to a pre-Columbian archaeological site in the Valley of Oaxaca.
When they enter the ancient pyramid, they find a Decoolerizer and next find themselves transported back in time, to an 8th century Mayan village. But the Mayans have already had visitors, the Aquaris, aliens from a dying planet who have enslaved the Mayans and if not stopped, will change earth’s future, and not for the good. It’s up to Koolura and Leila to save the day and they prove themselves up to the task, despite obstacles and hurdles in their way.
The tale is fast-paced. breath catching, and jam-packed with twists and turns. There’s humor, a touch of romance, lessons to be learned, evil beings to thwart, and the action and excitement doesn’t let up until the very end. Koolura and the Mayans won’t disappoint fans of the series or readers new to the adventures of Koolura and her best friend Leila.
