Book details:

Sonora and the Eye of the Titans
by T.S. Hall
Publication date: January 14th 2017
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult

Synopsis:

The King is dead, and the capital city of Titanis has fallen. The world of Sonora is at war, and the only hope against the onslaught of the Titan army lies with the last royal descendant of Zeus, who is being covertly sheltered on Earth in the secluded mountain town of Sandy, Oregon.

Allora is a shy, intelligent sixteen-year-old, trying to get through the gauntlet of high school while coming to terms with her otherworldly origins. After getting into a fight at soccer tryouts, Allora’s emotions boil over, and her hands suddenly burst into flames. She has harnessed the power of hadrons at the highest level, but at extreme cost. The magical outburst projects an energy signature that is detected by a group of assassins tasked with killing Sonoran rebels.

To survive, Allora, Katie, Dax, and Tanner must find a powerful ancient artifact known as the Eye of the Titans. With the help of a guardian known as Sasquatch, they will have to fight off creatures, solve complex riddles, and navigate magical caverns, all while enduring advanced calculus, jealous girlfriends, and prom

4 out of 5 (very good)


Sonora, and the Eye of the Titans is a young adult fantasy, in the similar vein of Percy Jackson. Allora is growing up as a 'normal' girl, whilst at the same time knowing that she is a Sonoran and having private lessons in magic and fighting. Also, it took a while to figure out just who knows what they are, and who doesn't. This book seems full of opposites - from being normal and Sonoran, to the love interest who likes Allora but is with someone else when it starts, and then agrees to go to the Prom with someone else! And of course, you have the quest that half of the adults won't admit to, whilst the other half encourage.

On the whole, this book is well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. The changes from one scene to another can sometimes feel a bit disjointed, but nothing major. This felt like a young YA read to me, which is not a negative comment in any way.

The story concludes nicely in this book, whilst definitely leaving you wanting more. Recommended by me.

I’m a writer, skier, and wanderer. I grew up in Portland, Oregon, but currently live in the beautiful mountain resort town of Sun Valley, Idaho. I love history, mythology, and the fantastical interpretations that have been incorporated in my debut young adult urban fantasy series called Sonora.
