Tintin is looking for a friend who was taken prisoner by the Incas. Tintin is led through rain forest and mountains by a young orange seller. They accidentally stumble upon a native celebration that almost gets them killed. I love this book because it is very exciting and interesting! I would recommend it to people who like comics and action.

This is the second in a two-part series, where Tintin started out searching for Pro. Calcus, and now is trying to discover the secret of the crystal balls. They end up barely escaping being sacrificed to the heathen gods,and seeing with their own eyes the treasure of the Aztecs!
I do, however, give one caution for this book. In it the Axtec priests practice voodooism. Not a reason to avoid the book, just something to be aware of.
