Today’s the big day! The Storm Runner by J. C. Cervantes is now on sale and ready to be read by all of you!
We’re celebrating the occasion by sharing this sweet illustration of the book’s endearing hero, Zane Obispo.
Zane is a 13-year-old from New Mexico who spends every day exploring an inactive volcano nicknamed “The Beast” with his dog, Rosie. On the first day of his new school, he meets a mysterious girl named Brooks, who introduces him to a world of Maya gods and monsters. Soon, Zane discovers his true destiny of freeing the death god known as Ah-Puch.
Courageous and independent, Zane doesn’t let the fact that he was born with one leg shorter than the other define who he is. Underneath his sometimes sarcastic exterior, Zane has a big heart and loves his family very deeply. But in order to save those who mean the most to him, he must learn to step up and become a true hero.
