Life gets strange for Charlie Hernandez when his parents disappear and his house mysteriously burns. But then he grows horns and feathers. Creatures from his abuela’s Hispanic mythology start appearing. Soon Charlie and his friend Violet Rey are on a crazy and dangerous search for truth. Their search takes them on a wild ride and introduces them to mythological creatures both good and bad.
Charlie Hernandez and the League of Shadows is a high action trip through the highlights of Hispanic mythology. It is a great addition for fans of Percy Jackson and lovers of diverse books. Charlie and Violet are plucky characters that readers will enjoy. I look forward to more adventures to come.
