This is the real deal. If you or your middle grade reader love adventure and mythology, here is your next must read. I enjoy reading and reviewing many middle grade books, but it’s been a long time since I’ve read an adventure that I couldn’t put down. Roseanne A. Brown does a brilliant job of weaving together action adventure, mythology, new school blues, friendship, and family. The twists and turns in this book are satisfying and will leave you wanting more.
Twelve-year-old Serwa Boateng leads an exciting life with her loving parents. That’s right, it’s published by Disney Hyperion in the Rick Riordan Presents series and both her parents love her and are still alive! This family of adze hunters or slayers of the transforming vampires from Ghana, travel the world together until an important mission forces Serwa’s parents to leave her in a safe place while they’re on a quest.
Serwa adapts to attending middle school like other kids her age, but finds the picture-perfect small town she’s living in isn’t as safe as her parents thought. Unable to contact her parents Serwa must battle an adze on her own, well not completely on her own, her new friends join in.
So much more folk lore, history, and adventure runs through these pages but I don’t want to put out any spoilers. I will tell you there’s a witch and some major surprises for Serwa and the reader. Enjoy this magical tale.
