The Storm Runner is an upcoming novel written by Jennifer Cervantes. It is set to be released on September 18th, 2018.
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?
Thirteen-year old Zane Obispo was born with mismatched legs and has been homeschooled, he spends his time in the New Mexico desert with his three-legged boxer-dalmatian, Rosie he took in after someone apparently abandoned her. He lives with his mother and uncle Hondo, his neighbors are the pepper gardener pepper Mr. Ortiz and the blind phone physic Ms. Caballero. There also a dead volcano (the Beast) in his yard that Zane suspects may have a connection to his father who left before he was born.
After a year, Mrs. Obispo decided to enroll Zane at a private school called Holy Ghost. His first day is tomorrow, Zane is not happy because of his shorter right leg but when his mother cries he accepts. His mother also gave him a present: a wooden cane from the recently deceased Mr. Chang. That night, Zane looked a book about Mayan Mythology. Last month, he discovered a labyrinth of caves and made it his own private place. He went back there that night with Rosie who ran towards some giant paw prints. Ignoring it, Zane and Rosie climbed the volcano, he thought about ways to get out of school when a plane suddenly came flying close to them. It looked an alien was inside, it crashed into the Beast causing Zane and Rosie to fly back. When he wakes up he races back home to find his mother worried, Rosie was already there. An ambulance, cops, fire trucks, and camera crews came. They couldn't find any planes, Mr. Ortiz and Ms. Cab were worried about Zane, she says evil lurks here. Rosie suddenly runs off, Zane gives chase and sees what was in that plane: a demon from Xib’alb’a (the Mayan Underworld) similar to one he read in his book. It told Zane "Apu", when mom came up he kills the demon with his cane. When he got back home, he soaked the book in his mom's holy water and hid it under some dirty clothes.
