Whereas the settings for the first two books in The Adventures of Archibald and Jockabeb series were inside the United States, the third book shifts to Brazil. When the two brothers fly south to visit their Uncle Charlie, a retired Merchant Marine who’d travelled all over the world before putting down roots in the Amazonian Rainforest, they have no idea what lies ahead. As the boys and their uncle travel further up river toward a remote village inhabited by the Minauri tribe and its wise old shaman, Hutano, the mood shifts and takes on a more foreboding nature. Jockabeb’s clairvoyant dreams once again foreshadow the danger lurking in the jungle outside the Minauri village. As a confrontation with the rival Wikola tribe and its evil shaman, Vengolus, draws closer, the boys learn a terrible secret that only their uncle and his good friend, Hutano, know. When Uncle Charlie and a Minauri war party head into the jungle in the dead of night, the boys are left alone with only women and children. Far from home, and with no one to protect them, Archibald and Jockabeb both hope that the blue feather dust will once again work its magic. In addition to learning interesting facts about the Amazon, the reader witnesses the classic battle between good and evil play out as the two brothers continue to mature and learn what true friendship really means.

Having narrowly escaped an evil shaman and supernatural black jaguar deep within the Amazon jungle in Book 3, the fourth book in The Adventures of Archibald and Jockabeb series finds the two brothers on school field trip to California.

What they next encounter in a subterranean grotto, and later out in the scorching desert, provide a true test of their survival skills and the power of the last bit of Haktu's blue feather.

The fifth book in The Adventures of Archibald and Jockabeb series picks up right where the fourth book left off. With many questions about what really happened in the Sonoran Desert still unanswered, Archibald and Jockabeb’s family head to the island of Jamaica for spring vacation. What begins as an idyllic stay at a secluded beachfront inn soon takes a turn for the worse when the boys and the inn’s proprietor, Salty, charter a fishing boat for the day. The captain of the boat is none other than Tommy Nat, Mr. Natonto’s estranged son. The violent storm that follows turns out to be only the first of many unexpected events that quickly propel the two brothers toward an unexpected showdown on another Caribbean island. The elusive Tommy Nat, a mysterious island doctor, a giant Haitian named Maurice, and unseen zombies all combine to set the stage for another classic clash between the forces of good and evil. While the final confrontation that unfolds inside a deserted café ultimately provides answers to the remaining mysteries of Lizard Flats, it also places the boys in untold danger. The book contains a number of interesting facts about the Caribbean, its culture and religion, and a bit of the occult. As in past books, the reader observes firsthand how Archibald and Jockabeb grow as brothers and young teens, all the while learning the true meaning of friendship.

At the conclusion of Archibald’s summer Students’ Living Abroad Program, Jockabab and a surprise visitor, Willow, arrive in Hong Kong for a week of what they assumed would be pleasant sightseeing.

The Adventures of Archibald and Jockabeb - In the Forest (Volume 1)

Written by: Art Collins

Available In: eBook|Paperback

Author Website: www.TheAJAdventures.com

The first book in the series begins when Archibald and Jockabeb sneak out of their house at midnight to hunt for a secret cave that was marked on an old map they’d found earlier in the day. The two brothers, who are twelve and eleven, end up finding and entering the secluded cave hidden deep within an eerie forest. After the boys descend a stone staircase, they discover a subterranean lake where an underwater dragon lives. The underwater dragon is actually a young Indian brave, Haktu, who many years before was transformed into the dragon by four evil warriors of the Black Raven Tribe. After Archibald repeats the magic words, “Nito, Vito, Samu,” Haktu is returned to his natural body. The three young boys then run for their lives when they are chased by flying wolf-crows that are part snarling wolf and part giant black crow. This initial encounter begins Archibald’s and Jockabeb’s first amazing adventure—an incredible adventure that spans the next year. During that time, the two brothers become reacquainted with Haktu after they along with their younger sister, Tess, find his lost pony, Uno. Still pursued by the deadly wolf-crows, the boys learn more about Haktu’s family, including the details of how he was captured by the Black Raven warriors. When Haktu finally says good-bye, he gives Archibald a magic blue feather. The blue feather plays an important role in subsequent books as Archibald and Jockabeb find themselves in one life-threatening predicament after another. While the settings change from book to book, the two brothers always meet fascinating characters—some good, and some evil; some human, and some anything but; some from this world, and some otherworldly beyond belief. As the boys grow older and travel across the United States, and to faraway places like the Amazon, the Caribbean, the Arctic, and the Orient, they learn the true meaning of friendship. The reader also learns interesting facts about the various places Archibald and Jockabeb visit, while witnessing the classic battle between the forces of good and evil play out in different ways.

The setting for second book in The Adventures of Archibald and Jockabeb series shifts from an eerie forest close the two brothers’ Midwestern home, to a remote mountain range in the western United States. When Archibald and Jockabeb leave home to board a plane, they are completely unaware that they’ll be the only two campers at Camp Bear Claw that summer. When they arrive at the camp, the boys find out that there are only two other people there—Gran, the elderly woman who owns the Camp Bear Claw, and Ben, the ranch hand who helps her. Worse yet, they soon hear stories from Ben about the strange and suspicious circumstances under which Gran’s husband, Walt, died a terrible death, together with how a deadly creature might well be roaming in the mountains nearby. When the boys leave camp early one morning with Ben and Gran’s old dog, Champ, to hike high in the mountains to find Tommy Two Feathers, an old Indian who may shed some light on whether the rumors are fact or fiction, they have no idea that what they ultimately learn will connect back to Haktu and his tribe. After being joined by a white wolf named Ghost Rider, the boys, Ben, Champ, and Tommy Two Feathers set out solve a mystery that has gone on for over a century. As danger looms at almost every turn, Archibald and Jockabeb hope that the magic blue feather they received from Haktu really does have the power to protect them. The reader once again has the opportunity to watch the two brothers’ personalities evolve, especially Jockabeb. And, as in the first book, the classic battle between the forces of good and evil play out—only this time in rarified mountain air.
