This first in an adventurous new trilogy combines mythology with threads of climate change and political corruption. The story weaves mythological creatures among strong, smart characters, and readers will be entertained and delighted. Armstrong and Marr have written a fast-paced, exciting adventure.

The inhabitants of Blackwell, S.D., are very special people. They’re descendants of the gods. Each god has a different magical power: Matt has a hammer, Fen can turn into a wolf and Laurie can open doors to other places. All is well until they realize that the end of the world is near. When the seer picks Matt to be the champion, everything changes. Matt, Fen and Laurie set out to save the world, fighting off trolls and nightmares who want to stop their quest. As they search for the other helpers, things turn dire. (LITTLE, BROWN, May, 368 pp., $17.00, ISBN: 9780316204965, HC, 8 & Up)
