  • A little slow to start, but definitely worth the r

    *I received an ARC from NetGalley. This does not affect my review.* First off, I'll admit that had it not been for a NetGalley email letting readers know about The Storm Runner and Dragon Pearl that were inspired and sponsored by Rick Riordan, I probably...perhaps very likely would not have heard of these, or picked them up so quickly... I loved the Percy Jackson series growing up, and like with any of my favorite authors, if they talk about other authors and books, I have to check them out! (Which is why this isn't a 5 star review.) That said, while I wasn't immediately pulled into this one, I loved the idea of learning about Mayan mythology as I read this, and once the gods started getting introduced I quickly found myself wanting to know more! That was a big thing, since I was afraid this wouldn't be able to stand up to other mythology stories I've read like the mentioned Percy Jackson series, and even things like Gaiman's Norse Mythology. Not to worry, since I loved it! (Although all those I and X names kind of got confusing! I still managed to figure it out though.) If I was asked about a favorite character...? I don't have one, and there was a part where pretty much each of the main characters was able to stand up and have the spotlight. I loved so many little things that I can't even begin to list, with or without spoilers I just know I would miss something. Why not read it? I'm sure you will find your own favorite things about this book!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Loved it i have#1&#2

    I loved this book its soo cool the mayans are a caltour that not a lot of people know about the mayan gods and goddess fasinated me sooo much that i sat down one after i started reading this book for the 3 time and research about the mayan gods and goddess for about 3 hours stright and came up with 50 mayan gods and goddess it really cool to see that in diffrent parts f mexico there are diffrent names for the same gods and goddess this book has so many good carictors but if i had to pick a fav it might be brooks because she can stand her ground agents the demon runners better than anyone else in this book and she has so many secrets that just make her intreaging to read about and it just makes you want to be her friend to find out her story.this book has humor and it has the scary bits and the so happy it melts you face parts and the parts so sad that it makes you crie and a hole lot of evil butt kicking that makes up a really good book.i give this book 5 stars because J.C.Cervantes did such a good job on ths book and i can't wait fr book 3 i sugest that you read them in order because the next book (#2)is like the rest of book 1 and thats how i think book 3 will work to so read in order i am sure you will fall in love with this book and will be left wanting more i sure did.this book is amazing you have to read it have fun wit thus book. PS.sorry about the typos its hard to write on a kobo Bye.

  • The Storm Runner by J.C Cervantes

    The Storm Runner is a Rick Riordan Presents book by J.C Cervantes. It incorporates ancient Mayan mythology into a modern era. This books main character is Zane Obispo, a kid born with one leg shorter than the other, he also has an unsually strong bond with his dog, Rosie. He lives near a volcano he nicknamed "The Beast",with his mum and uncle Hondo. On the day that Zane returns to school (he's been homeschooled for the last year by his mum). A girl named Brooks, warns him that he's in danger, but according to the school, she never existed in the first place. Finding out the his volcano is actually a portal and that he was prophesiesed to let out the most destructive god, the god of death and bring chaos to the entire world, Zane and his friends embark on an epic journey to stop the god of death from destroying the world. To sum it up I'd say it's a brilliant book, that combines elements of Mayan mythology and the modern world. I think this is great and I can't wait to read the next two books in this trilogy. Let's go Zane. Ari Patel, 11, signing off. P.S. Don't forget to read the next two books (The Fire Keeper and The Shadow Crosser). P.P.S. Just to sound like a crazy, mad fan. I'd like to say " OH MY GOSH, THIS BLOWS MY MIND, THAT'S HOW GOOD IT IS.

  • OMG #TheBestBookEver! #SryBoutLength

    I love books. And this book is now in my fav book area and that says something! I also never say OMG which means i am really in love. This book is an amazing adventure! It's so good i'm in amazment and love so i can barely speel! Spell* (None of this was spell checkd) I am defently looking towards reading the rest of the series when i can afford it for my kobo. I would recommend this book to people who love adventure books, legends, myths, and maybe history. Also recommended to people who like the I Am Number Four Series (because of the power and legend and adventure context), maybe the His Dark Materials series (again because of the adventure and legend context). Hope this was helpful! PS. Sorry about length of review!

    Thanks for your feedback!
