Zane would much rather explore the dormant volcano near his home in New Mexico than go to school with kids who bully him for his limp. But what Zane doesn't know is that the volcano is a gateway to another world, a world he's thrust into with his dog, Rosie, and the new girl at school, Brooks - kicking off an epic adventure full of surprising discoveries, dangerous secrets, and an all-out war between the gods. 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?

Zane is a huge fan of exploring the volcano near his home. But he has no idea that the volcano is actually a gateway to another world and that he is at the centre of a prophecy.

I loved Rick Riorden's books, but I already read them all. So I was scrolling down the page of all Rick Riordan's books. Then I found this book, and on first glance the cover looked not that intresting sience the cover is full of art and I am not saying it is terrible art but it did not make the book seem intresting to me. But I had nothing else to read so I guess that that is the best I could find, so I holded it after a few days of waiting it finally arrived and when I started reading it I was basically swallowed by its amazingness and I would read it everysingle day untill it was finished it was one of my most favourite books. So I learned to never base a book on its cover, it was the wrong thing to do. So my comment is to say this book is amazing and I would recommend it to everyone.

Terribly slow moving plot on a character whose whole personality is based on his disability and neighbors. Character takes no initiative, he doesn't actually act but lets the (slow) storyline drag him along. Terrible, could not finish.

If you enjoyed the Greek and Roman mythology stories presented in the modern time by Rick Riordan then you need to try this series. The story is a Rick Riordan presents title. This story by J.C. Cervantes centers on the Mayan culture in modern time. It is great middle school read.

If you like Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series, you've got to try reading this Mayan- Mythology book! I'm excited to read the next book: The Fire Keeper!

Wonderful Mayan mythology fantasy book. Had some rough spots but overall a wholesome story.

I liked the idea of this story but I couldn't get into it very well. I'm sure I could've enjoyed it if I'd kept at it, but there was a wait list so I returned it. The writing could've been better, but the characters were very interesting and I think the second book will be better.

The Storm Runner had an engaging plot and imaginative characters combined with Mayan mythology. I really did enjoy reading this book. However, I don't quite like the author's writing style. In my opinion, the author has an annoying tendency of stating the obvious, and uses too many exclamation points to the point of excess. Overall, it was a satisfactory book and I will be looking forward to the next in the series (If there is one).

Zane Obispo’s mother is making him attend a private school after a blissful year of being home schooled. Zane is not excited because in the past other students have bullied him about using a cane when he walks. He would much rather explore the volcano behind his house with his dog, Rosie. On one of Zane’s exploits up the volcano, he and Rosie witness a plane crash with an unusual creature that only he can see. Then a mysterious girl named Brooks tells Zane that he is destined to release something horrible that is imprisoned inside the volcano. Zane and Brooks set off on an adventure filled with epic battles, Mayan gods, and even a chicken! Along the journey, Zane’s inner strength is tested as he learns about his past. A fun and exciting read, fans of Percy Jackson will devour this story and be clamoring for more books starring Zane.

Lovisiana's Way home is a wonderful book! It was very heart felt and motivating. Every letter in this book was amazing with feeling. I especially loved when Louisiana sang, it reminds me of who we can be if we give it our all. I also loved how DiEamillo writes"Granny's" letter. This book is a must-read!

This is the 2nd book out in the Rick Riordan Presents imprint and the 1st in a new series about Mayan mythology by J.C. Cervantes. It's action-packed and sure to be a hit with fans of Rick Riordan's other mythology-based series.
