"The Rones lie about their true intent. They enter the city of Huron at the peril of us all. Save me."
Every steward has a city and every steward hears the voice of the city. Fourteen-year-old Nikolas Lyons has heard the voice of Huron and she will change his life forever.
Nikolas and company are transported to a time when Earth is tethered to the fantastic world of Mon – or as we have come to call her, the Moon. He learns that Mon is filled with fire-breathing winged lions and volcano born nymphs and magic so thick you can breathe it. But not all things are grand and beautiful. While aboard the Mottled Craw and in route to Huron, Xanthus is infected by a mysterious creature. It is not long after Nikolas understands that his friend's infection and the evil brought on by the Rones are one and the same. Never one for responsibility, Nikolas finds himself tasked with finding a cure for a dying Xanthus, while protecting the city of Huron from the mysterious creature most foul.

First 100 Page review here.

*I received this copy from the author but that does not affect my opinion.*

  Nikolas is an adventurous 14 year old boy who goes on the adventure of a lifetime with his friends,brother and grandfather. Their mission is to find Huron and help the people but along the way find themselves sidetracked by various events. Nikolas was a likable character as well as his friends. I liked the idea of the book as well but it wasn't what I had expected even though I reviewed the first 100 pages, some things were changed.

 If I were to describe the story I would say it's a little Zathura(movie with Josh Hutcherson) with some Avatar and Greek mythology and a lot of other original factors. If you have read my first 100 page review you know that Caroline(one of Nikolas's friends) was my favorite character and still is. I rate this 3.5 out of 5 stars. It's a lot of adventure but it was a little to sci-fi much for me, but still at least check it out! Thank you Kevin and Aero Studios!

Have a great day and have a happy holiday!
