The Fire Keeper (Giveaway)

I'm truly excited to kick off the month of September by partnering with Disney Book Group for a new giveaway! It's always fun to be able to support series and imprints I love, and I'm happy to be able to support The Storm Runner series. I read and loved The Storm Runner last year (and Macky has also read and adored this one), and I'm looking forward to devouring the sequel The Fire Keeper soon. I've heard that it's got more shenanigans with Zane and the gang, including a brand new quest and more Aztec and Mayan gods and monsters popping up! If you'd like to join me in catching up on the series, this is your chance to win a finished copy.

Zane Obispo’s new life on a beautiful secluded tropical island, complete with his family and closest friends, should be perfect. But he can’t control his newfound fire skills yet (inherited from his father, the Maya god Hurakan); there’s a painful rift between him and his dog ever since she became a hell hound; and he doesn’t know what to do with his feelings for Brooks.

One day he discovers that by writing the book about his misadventures with the Maya gods, he unintentionally put other godborn children at risk. Unless Zane can find the godborns before the gods do, they will be killed. To make matters worse, Zane learns that Hurakan is scheduled to be executed. Zane knows he must rescue him, no matter the cost. Can he accomplish both tasks without the gods detecting him, or will he end up a permanent resident of the underworld?

In this cleverly plotted sequel to The Storm Runner, the gang is back together again with spirited new characters, sneaky gods, Aztec royalty, unlikely alliances, and secrets darker than Zane could ever have imagined. Secrets that will change him forever.

About the Series
A contemporary adventure based on Maya mythology from Rick Riordan Presents! In Book 1, The Storm Runner, a lonely boy in New Mexico has a physical disability that makes middle school feel even more like everyone is watching him. But as he soon learns, his physical differences are merely the first clue to a family history that connects him to the Maya gods—and puts him in mortal danger.
