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 be...

The Storm Runner Reviews
An arc of this book was sent to me by Disney Books/Rick Riordan Presents in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
The Storm Runner is quite the book. It has characters that are very likable and humorous. They easily grew on me and I found myself having favorites quite early on in the book. And a plus, there was an adorable dog in this book, who (view spoiler)[ dies! but comes back, don't worry! (hide spoiler)] This story fits among Rick Riordan's books, ...more
"Are you understanding what I'm telling you, Storm Runner? You are the storm. And the storm is you."

This past spring, I read and fell in love with the first title under the Rick Riordan Presents umbrella, ARU SHAH AND THE END OF TIME by Roshani Chokshi. It's one of my favorite middle-grade releases of the year, and if you haven't read it yet, hopefully my review will encourage you to do so!
THE STORM RUNNER by J.C. Cervantes came out last week and is another series starter in th ...more
ok so first of all: THE DOG DIES
((view spoiler)[but comes back as a hellhound so that's OK I GUESS (hide spoiler)])
OVERALL this fits in the same formula as Rick Riordan's books and also the first RR Presents book, Aru Shah and the End of Time.
I didn't love it as much as Aru Shah and I think a big part of it was this recurring subplot with Zane's two older neighbors, the seer Ms. Cab and the mortal gardener Mr. Ortiz, who kept persistently asking out Ms. Cab even though she kept saying no, and Z ...more
I think for those that haven't read Percy Jackson, this could be a really good read. However, the formula of the story really followed almost too much like PJ. So while the story was enjoyable, it felt a little too much like a Percy story, that it was hard to stop drawing comparisons and not find some parts lacking.
The other issue that I had was the characters. There were some characters that I enjoyed - Hondo and Zane's neighbors - but I really never connected with Zane or Brooks. They felt to ...more
The countdown has begun and I am so excited to share Zane and crew with the world. I so hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it!
Welcome to the Volcano!
Zane Obispo has a pretty sweet life. Since last year, he’s been homeschooled, which means the other kids can’t pick on him anymore. He gets to spend a lot of his time out in the desert of New Mexico, wandering and exploring with his faithful boxer-dalmatian, Rosie.
His mom loves him like crazy. His uncle Hondo is a fun housemate, even though he’s maybe a little too addicted to pro wrestling and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
As for the neighbors, Zane only has two: friendly Mr. Ort ...more
I’d definitely recommend to people who love Percy Jackson it’s very similar.
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.
The Storm Runner is a middle grade fantasy book that follows a 13 years old boy ...more
