About The Book

Charlie Hernandez still likes to think of himself as a normal kid. But what’s normal about being a demon-slaying preteen with an encyclopedic knowledge of Hispanic and Latino mythology who can partially manifest nearly any animal trait found in nature? Well, not much. But, Charlie believes he can get used to this new “normal,” because being able to sprout wings or morph fins is pretty cool.

But there is a downside: it means having to constantly watch his back for La Mano Peluda’s sinister schemes. And when the leader of La Liga, the Witch Queen Jo herself, is suddenly kidnapped, Charlie’s sure they’re at it again.

Determined to save the queen and keep La Liga’s alliances intact, Charlie and his good friend Violet Rey embark on a perilous journey to track down her captors. As Charlie and Violet are drawn deeper into a world of monstruos and magia they are soon left with more questions than answers—like, why do they keep hearing rumors of dead men walking, and why is Charlie suddenly having visions of an ancient evil: a necromancer priest who’s been dead for more than five centuries?

Charlie’s abuela once told him that when dead men walk, the living run in fear. And Charlie’s about to learn the truth of that—the hard way.

The Review

I'm gonna say this first, y'all need to read the first book in this series (Charlie Hernandez & The League Of Shadows)  to fully understand this story or else it won't have that special vibe that you carry over from the first book!

After the events of the first book well past Charlie and his family, Charlie is having to learn his new found power while trying to please his parents who don't want him out of their sight, especially mama. Only when a new threat is discovered when the Witch Queen is kidnapped that Charlie discovers that something else is happening to the dark world that only Charlie can save. With his trustworthy friend Violet by his side, Charlie goes deep to rescue the Queen while putting their lives in danger with an ending that will wishing that the third book is out already just to see what will happen next!!

I'm not a huge lover of Fantasy books but this series has me totally wrapped into it or maybe it's just because I have grown up on the border and know the culture well. Either way, this book goes deeper in the world of mythology and culture that you can actually picture yourself with Charlie and Violet, as they fight their way to the truth. This book or series just isn't all serious though, it will have a few laugh out loud moments that will leave you wanting more. 

My only problem with this book is the simple fact that we now have to wait for the next book to come out to see what will happen next for Charlie and the people he meets!!

Thank You to Ryan Calejo for this fantastic installment in this series that I so hope doesn't end soon!!

I voluntarily reviewed this book from the Publisher!
