So with Katherine's life hanging in the balance and all the adults stuck in Mexico, which is a long story in itself, but one only a adult can get stuck in, the boys along with their friend and Katherine's brother, Thomas must search and rescue Katherine before time runs out. But what happens on the mountain can not stay on the mountain and that advice comes from the most surprising place, well, person ever, but is this really the end of Robert? We will have to wait and see. Be sure not to miss this action packed adventure you will regret it.
