13-year old Zane Obispo of New Mexico has always had a fairly bizarre life. From being drawn to the mysterious dormant volcano in his backyard to only having one good leg, he is no stranger to the word abnormal. But Zane learns a whole new definition of bizarre when he is forced into a millennia-old prophecy with the new girl at school, Brooks. He would much rather spend time with his dog Rosie, but in order to save his family (and the world) from an evil Mayan god, he is thrust into an adventure that will change his life forever. Unexpected heroes, wicked demons, feisty gods, and new friends give him the power to overcome his fears and become the Storm Runner.
