Disclosure: Disney Book Group is partnering with me this review and giveaway. Regardless, all opinions are my own!
Everyone in my family loves immersing themselves into a good book. Nothing brings me more joy than, on a fall rainy day, grabbing a good book, nustling under my blanket and curling up on the couch with a good book. The same rings true for other members of the household.
As a typical teenager, sometimes it is hard to get Jeffery (age 13) to get him to do anything for an extended period of time. However, one thing he loves to do is sit and read a good, engaging book. That is why were excited for the new release of The Storm Runner, by Rick Riordan Presents and Author J.C. Cervantes.
About the Book
How can one boy with a limp stop the Maya god of death, disaster, and darkness from destroying the world?
Zane has always enjoyed exploring the dormant volcano near his home in New Mexico, even though hiking it is challenging. He’d much rather hang out there with his dog, Rosie, than go to middle school, where kids call him Sir Limps a Lot, McGimpster, or Uno – for his one good leg.
What Zane doesn’t know is that the volcano is a gateway to another world and he is at the center of a powerful prophecy. A new girl at school, Brooks, informs him that he’s destined to release an evil god from the ancient Maya relic he is imprisoned in–unless she can find and remove it first. Together they return to the volcano, where all kinds of crazy happens. Brooks turns into a hawk, a demon attacks them in a cave, and Rosie gives her all while trying to protect Zane. When Zane decides to save his dog no matter the cost, he is thrust into an adventure full of surprising discoveries, dangerous secrets, and an all-out war between the gods, one of whom happens to be his father.
To survive, Zane will have to become the Storm Runner. But how can he run when he can’t even walk well without a cane?
