Magic and myth collide in this fast-paced middle-grade fantasy, a sequel to the adventure Booklist said will make readers “clamor for more, especially those who loved Rick Riordan’s Norse-themed The Sword of Summer.”
Ever since Buzz and his friend Mary returned from their quest to save the Runes of Valhalla, Buzz has been wishing something more exciting would happen in his sleepy town of Crowmarsh.
Buzz’s wish is about to come true. Strange people are arriving in Crowmarsh, and it turns out that these visitors aren’t people at all—they’re mythological gods! They’ve come to kidnap Buzz’s best friend, Sam, whose newfound power makes him the key to granting the wishes of the gods.When the gods kidnap Sam, Buzz and Mary must set off on a dangerous adventure to find a mysterious being known as the Keeper of the Myths. Only the Keeper is strong enough to help them save Sam, unlock their own powers, and banish the gods back to their realms—before it’s too late.
