Summary: David is a high school student with a pretty normal life. Normal, that is, until he witnesses his girlfriend, Senna, being swallowed up by a massive wolf, and in his attempt to rescue her, he and three other kids are sucked into EverWorld after her. Then the adventure really begins. David, April, Christopher, and Jalil must escape from gods they’ve only heard about in ancient mythology as they try to find Senna (who may be a witch) and get back to the real world before it’s too late! Written for teenaged readers, this book is action-packed and filled with mythology from Aztec to Norse. Search for Senna is the exciting introduction to this series, which contains 12 books.
Review: If you’re looking for something to read after you’ve finished or outgrown the Percy Jackson books, then pick up this series! Even though the mythology mentioned in this book may not be entirely accurate, I still enjoyed the references. The characters are likeable, the story is fast-paced, and it leaves you excited to read book two in the series: Land of Loss. I’m actually going to go check it out right now!
