Sonora and the Eye of the Titans
Publication date: January 14th 2017
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult
The King is dead, and the capital city of Titanis has fallen. The world of Sonora is at war, and the only hope against the onslaught of the Titan army lies with the last royal descendant of Zeus, who is being covertly sheltered on Earth in the secluded mountain town of Sandy, Oregon.
Allora is a shy, intelligent sixteen-year-old, trying to get through the gauntlet of high school while coming to terms with her otherworldly origins. After getting into a fight at soccer tryouts, Allora’s emotions boil over, and her hands suddenly burst into flames. She has harnessed the power of hadrons at the highest level, but at extreme cost. The magical outburst projects an energy signature that is detected by a group of assassins tasked with killing Sonoran rebels.
To survive, Allora, Katie, Dax, and Tanner must find a powerful ancient artifact known as the Eye of the Titans. With the help of a guardian known as Sasquatch, they will have to fight off creatures, solve complex riddles, and navigate magical caverns, all while enduring advanced calculus, jealous girlfriends, and prom.
3, 5 stars
Sonora and the Eye of the Titans is my comeback to Urban Fantasy, it’s been a while since I’ve read a book of this genre.
This book tells the story of 4 young adults and their adventures between two worlds. That’s one of the points I liked the most. It doesn’t tell the story from a totally different world, a different ambient. We see the characters grow as teens and also we see how they know and try to control their abilities.
Also, I’ve connected with Allora and her story how the story develops her character, her personality. How her past story has marked her too.
Besides, the story shows important principles that should be of high value and those are friendship, camaraderie, the importance of family and the fight for the right thing, not for what one wants. That’s a good points for this book.
Keeping on mind my likes in books, I couldn’t give it 4 or more stars because I found something missing or maybe it’s that I’m used to other happenings.
However, I recommend reading this book if you like this genre, but if you’re doubting then this should be a good start.
I found it easy-going and not-to-hard to read (English is not my maternal language), and a book for teens and young/new adults.
This is the first book, there are two more to come, Sonora #2 is coming this May so we don’t have to wait that much to know what happens next.
I’m really thankful for the opportunity to participate in this book tour.
I’m a writer, skier, and wanderer. I grew up in Portland, Oregon, but currently live in the beautiful mountain resort town of Sun Valley, Idaho. I love history, mythology, and the fantastical interpretations that have been incorporated in my debut young adult urban fantasy series called Sonora.
