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.

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.

The Storm Runner Reviews
Trigger warnings: None up until the point I read.
I received an E-ARC via Netgalley and Disney Book Group. However this review is based on the final version of the book. I was really excited when I heard about this book! And so happy when I got it on Netgalley. Unfortunately I didn't have the time to read it earlier. Then the final version released and I opted to read that.
The beginning was pretty enjoyable. As the story continued I found the writing style a bit annoying. The Storm ...more

OooOOOooo Nice cover!
Zane Obispo and his dog Rosie love to hike their volcano, even though Rosie only has three legs and Zane needs a cane to walk. Then a plane driven by a pilot demon crashes right by Zane’s head and he is thrown into a new and unknown world and a prophecy he doesn’t want to be a part of.

I was never Miss-Know-It-All when it comes to mythology.
I barely know basics about Greek mythology, know even less about Scandinavian one, and when it comes to Maya, before I came across this book, I had no idea it even exists.
Here is what come books for, to make us learn, end even though I can’t say that I am an expert in Maya mythology after finishing The Storm Runner, I can say that I know at least little about it.

There’s a whole lot to love about this little gem of a book. It’s an action-packed introduction to a little-known mythological system that features a hispanic, disabled MC. This sounds like a lot of rep and you might be wondering if the inclusion of the disability might seem like too much, but it’s all woven together seamlessly and given its due weight.
