Maya and the Rising Dark by Rena Barron

39726908. sy475

After her father goes missing, 12-year-old Maya uncovers that he is the keeper of the gateway between our world and The Dark. To find her father, she’ll need to unlock her own powers and fight a horde of creatures set on starting a war. Stranger Things meets Percy Jackson set on the south side of Chicago.



Y’allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll, Stranger Things meets Percy Jackson???? YES PLEASE. I’m so so so  down with it. I want to get back into reading more middle grade, and this one sounds like the most perfect blend of middle grade goodness and good paranormal materal. I want this now, please? PLEASE, BOOK GODS AND GODDESSES???? HEAR MY PLEAS.




Mulan certainly knows a thing or two about going to war, so I think she will enjoy this one!


What do you think? Is this on your book TBR as well?
