Disney Book Group is partnering with us for this awesome giveaway of THE STORM RUNNER by J.C. Cervantes!
We have another amazing book coming from the Rick Riordan Presents imprint, which, as you know, means another story based on mythology. This time, author J.C. Cervantes introduces us to Maya mythology with The Storm Runner, a middle-grade book that’s sure to entertain even adults as well as children.
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?
Sounds exciting, right? There’s so much to love about it already, especially Zane, who we’re sure is going to be an awesome main character, even with a limp. Then there’s his dog Rosie, and we know we’re going to love her, because, well, she’s a dog! And then Brooks, the new girl at school who seems to know all the answers, and is probably witty and willing to go all out to help Zane.
If you win our giveaway, you’ll not only get The Storm Runner book, but you’ll also get a branded umbrella and branded Mexican hot chocolate along with it.
You’ll have until Monday, September 24th at 11:59am EDT to enter for a chance to win The Storm Runner prize pack, so we recommend you do it now.
Please note: Giveaway is open to U.S. addresses only, and the prizes will be provided by Disney Book Group.
