Ian and Mia Warrior are fourteen-year-old twins. They were born in Guatemala but were adopted from the Madres de la Cruz convent in Quetzaltenango by Gary and Donna Warrior and now live with them in Texas where they attend Catholic school. Mia has had “premonitions,” and Ian finds out that he can heal anyone, even a dead man. These experiences bring about a life change for the twins, who enter the mystical world of demons, angels, and the supernatural. Mr. and Mrs. Warrior’s friends, Hugo and Dolores Acevedo of New York City, want the Warriors to bring Mia and Ian for a visit. But the Acevedos are really working for Caleb Sute, a mysterious, shady character who is planning to gather his followers in Guatemala for “the Great Awakening” using the k’in tun stone of the ancient Mayans.

The fact is that Caleb also wants to use Mia and Ian with their special powers for his purposes. Mia has a premonition that the children should not go to New York, so their parish priest, Father Bill Henry, keeps them home for special studies. However, Father Bill must make a quick trip to Guatemala to meet three friends, a Muslin cleric named Amin, a Jewish rabbi named Isaac, and an evangelical Protestant minister named Paul Jones, so he takes the twins with him. Together, the four men have a secret mission to perform. What is it? And who is this Caleb Sute? Will Mia and Ian be able to resist him? Will they even be able to survive? Author María Galvez de Briere is married to Paul Briere, a member of Congress in Guatemala. She has also lived in Texas, Puerto Rico, and Montreal, where she obtained her undergraduate degree at McGill University. Writing and travelling are her two great passions.

The Warrior Twins is certainly a fast-paced, exciting story. The obvious lesson is that people from various cultures, backgrounds, and religions can come together for a cause far more important than their differences to combat evil for the greater good of humanity. And there is a very strong good versus evil thread, along with a great deal of interesting historical and geographical information about Guatemala. As to language issues, the “d” word is used once by one of the “bad guys.” Depending on one’s theological background, not everybody will agree with the underlying premise of the plot, that God gives people the power to perform miracles today, and some may question whether a Catholic priest, Protestant minister, Muslim Imam, and Jewish rabbi can really work together for a spiritual cause. But putting such questions aside, I would think that regardless of differences in views on these subjects, anyone can appreciate it as a fun fantasy-fiction book. ( )
