I am excited to be partnering with Disney Book Group on this giveaway and fabulous new Rick Riordan Presents book! All thoughts and opinions are my own. This post does contain affiliate links.
Almost exactly one year ago I read the book Storm Runner by J.C. Cervantes and was totally hooked! My middle grade reader was too. We loved it and have been anxiously awaiting the release of the next installment in the series. Today I am thrilled to be able to share with you that the second book is now hitting a book seller near you! Happy day!
Here is a little overview of the first book: It’s a contemporary adventure based on Maya mythology that focuses on a lonely boy in New Mexico who has a physical disability that makes middle school feel even more like everyone is watching him. But as he soon learns, his physical differences are merely the first clue to a family history that connects him to the Maya gods—and puts him in mortal danger. Exciting right?!
If you haven’t read book one, get ready for a teeny, tiny spoiler alert…
Here is where the new book Fire Keeper picks up:
Zane Obispo’s new life on a beautiful secluded tropical island, complete with his family and closest friends, should be perfect. But he can’t control his newfound fire skills yet (inherited from his father, the Maya god Hurakan); there’s a painful rift between him and his dog ever since she became a hell hound; and he doesn’t know what to do with his feelings for Brooks.
One day he discovers that by writing the book about his misadventures with the Maya gods, he unintentionally put other godborn children at risk. Unless Zane can find the godborns before the gods do, they will be killed. To make matters worse, Zane learns that Hurakan is scheduled to be executed. Zane knows he must rescue him, no matter the cost. Can he accomplish both tasks without the gods detecting him, or will he end up a permanent resident of the underworld?
In this cleverly plotted sequel to The Storm Runner, the gang is back together again with spirited new characters, sneaky gods, Aztec royalty, unlikely alliances, and secrets darker than Zane could ever have imagined. Secrets that will change him forever.
