Jake Atlas and the Quest for the Crystal Mountain

By Rob Lloyd Jones


Jake Atlas and his family are searching for their fifth emerald tablet, which will reveal the secret to the history of humankind. At China's Terracotta Army Museum, Jake retrieves a clue to a safe passage into a nearby tomb, where the tablet is believed to be hidden. But when a helicopter appears and blows up the tomb, the Atlases know they are being pursued by the People of the Snake. They must decode the rescued tablet and journey to the Crystal Mountain in Tibet to discover its store of ancient knowledge. But the mountain is guarded by a spirit, never to be entered. Not one to be deterred, Jake Atlas must overcome high altitudes, survive in a frozen landscape and drink far more yak butter tea than he'd ever imagined to discover the mountain's secrets. Another heart-thumping archaeological adventure from an award-winning author, full of laughs and high-tech gadgets.

  • Sequel to the high-octane novels Jake Atlas and the Tomb of the Emerald Snake and Jake Atlas and the Hunt for the Feathered God.
  • Full of humour and high-tech gadgets, this action-packed series has huge appeal for girls and boys.
  • Rob is energetic in promoting his books through his many events here, in the UK, as well as internationally.

Rob is the author of highly acclaimed titles Wild Boy and Wild Boy and the Black Terror, as well as Jake Atlas and the Tomb of the Emerald Snake and Jake Atlas and the Hunt for the Feathered God.
