Storm Runner
Storm Runner | J C Cervantes
26 posts | 19 read | 21 to read
A contemporary adventure based on Mayan mythology from Rick Riordan Presents!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 Mayan 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?

For fans of Lightning Thief a story built around Mayan myths. Great main character and lots of action.

If you like Rick Riordan' s books, you will like this too. In fact this book is part of the Rick Riordan Presents campaign. The main character is Zane Obispo who learns his heritage as well as his destiny in the first book of this series. JC Cervantes explores Mayan gods and myths as she creates an adventure that won't disappoint fans of mythology. Book 2 comes out in the fall of 2019.

You know what? I'm not enjoying this. I don't care if I've only got 100 pages left, I don't care about the characters, it feels boring and it's not sparking joy. I'm going to konmari this mofo and mark it DNF.

Cathythoughts I think you are absolutely right 👍🏻♥️ 7mo
mcctrish I just bailed on “On the come up” I loved “the hate u give” but I‘m not into rap at all so a book about rap throw downs ( that‘s the start who knows where it goes from there ) is a no 7mo
Sace @Cathythoughts @mcctrish I had such high hopes for this book but it just wasn't for me. 7mo

This is not turning out to be as good as I thought it would, but I'm past the point of no return. I might as well finish it.

I'm actually staying on target for a read along schedule!!

PS- I think I've figured out that I reach for manga and MG fiction because I can only find small chunks of time to read and I can get more pages of manga/MG read in 10 than more difficult material.

BookHoarder32 @RealBooks4ever @Erofan It had the same feeling as the Percy Jackson series. It's definitely a pick - I put a short review on Goodreads. 7mo

It was wonderful to see J.C. Cervantes at the Tucson Festival of Books last weekend. The Storm Runner is a fun, thrilling romp through a world of untapped magic and endless possibility. We recently interviewed J.C. Cervantes about her writing process and her interactions with readers.

This book is exciting for a number of reasons, so I hoped to get my copy signed when I met the author. However, I met the author in a social situation while she spoke to another cool author whose book I did not have on hand. It‘s not like I‘m a smooth talker in the best of situations, so I just excused myself.

Being determined to not DNF this has saved it for me. A good 100 pages in and something is /finally/ happening. I don't know if it's enough, but it's more exciting than before. At least Kiwi is comfy and waaarm 😻

My first finished book of #24in48 with just under 9 hours of total reading done. I enjoyed the story but it didn‘t really grip me quite as I thought it would. The latter part of the book definitely picked up and the ending was really good so I‘ll probably give the sequel a go when it comes out. #rickriordanpresents

I‘m almost done with The Storm Runner but I can‘t keep my eyes open for much longer so I decided to get some sleep and finish it first thing in the morning. I‘ve gotten a decent 7 hours of reading in today which I‘m proud of! #24in48 #huomennalissää #bujo

Starting #24in48 now, from the comfort of my bed. It‘s 8:30am as I didn‘t have it in me to wake up at 7am to read but I decided to go with the official time zone anyway. Here we go!

I‘m ready with my #tbr for my first ever #24in48 readathon! I‘m hoping to get to at least the 12 hour mark; it‘s been a while since I‘ve read for a really long time as my attention span isn‘t what it used to be but I‘m super ready to try this! #bujo

RosaS @BookHoarder32 Thanks! Oh no😱 Knowing Rick there‘s a huge cliffhanger in this as well which makes that even worse😂 But at least there‘s something to look forward to! 10mo

📕Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
📗Mother Knows Best by Serena Valentino
📘The Storm Runner by J.C Cervantes
📙First We Make the Beast Beautiful by Sarah Wilson
📕The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

Any thoughts on which of these to read first?

TheBookAddict I finished my first John Green book this weekend, Looking for Alaska, and if the one on your pile anything like that one, I recommend you start with Green‘s Book first. 😊 happy reading! 11mo

Finally I get to enjoy a mostly free weekend! This means that I can stay up late and read which really feels like a luxury at this point. I've been struggling with a lot this month so it's really nice to just be able to relax and catch my breath for a moment. #currentlyreading #latenightreading

I love my sister! (Who's not on Litsy.... yet) 😉 Because she let me borrow these as she has prime and release day delivery, and my Lantern's Ember and Storm Runner have not yet shipped (with my Lu's Wildcard). And she mostly has the same taste in reading as me. 😁📚 Lended #bookhaul !! 💃🕺

Feisty heroes, tricky gods, murderous demons, and spirited giants are just some of the pleasures that await in this fresh and funny take on Maya mythology, as rich and delicious as a mug of authentic hot chocolate.

Another in the “Rick Riordan Presents” series, this explores Mayan mythology. I really love that Riordan is helping authors explore world mythology, but I wish there was a little more originality in this story. There are so many similarities to both the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson books that I stopped keeping track. There‘s nothing really wrong with the story - it‘s fun and fast and very engaging - but it‘s been told before. 50%pick/50%SoSo

Was delighted to come home tonight to a parcel from the wonderful @LibrarianRyan! It's super rad that she decided to share some of her Book Expo treasures with Littens who couldn't attend. All of these sound like amazingly fun reads- not sure how I'll decide what to pick up first!
