Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents J. C. Cervantes's exciting new spin-off from the best-selling STORM RUNNER trilogy, featuring the shadow bruja Ren vs. Aztec gods.
Shadow bruja Ren Santiago, daughter of the Maya goddess of time, suspects that five rogue godborn kids are trying to awaken the dangerous Aztec Lords of Night. With none of her other friends available, Ren has to team up with a teen hybrid demon and an eleven-year-old hunter to stop them. But this is no ordinary challenge. It could well be an impossible one that leaves Ren questioning her very existence.
Anyone who enjoys fast-paced myth-based adventures will be swept up in this one featuring Maya and Mexica gods and their magical offspring.

Praise for The Lords of Night
"This volume sizzles with madcap fun, interweaving icons and figures from Mayan and Aztec mythology with dizzying results. The author excels at making these gods and goddesses cool and familiar. In the second half, many truths kept from Ren fall into fabulous place, spiraling into an exciting cliffhanger. This duology opener is accessible to readers who are new to this world. An engrossing, god-filled delight." —Kirkus Reviews

You will meet the scariest gods you can imagine, the creepiest denizens of the Underworld, and the most amazing and unlikely heroes who have to save our world from being ripped apart." —Rick Riordan
