Lisa steps out of her element to review this YA, Urban Fantasy! But did she like it?
Sonora and the Eye of the Titans (Release Date: January 14, 2017)
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.

Allora and her friends are typical teens struggling with all the usual things that teens do; school work, romantic feelings and having magical powers! Oh yes, I forgot to mention that these teens are actually not from Earth but are in hiding, in Oregon, on Earth as there has been a war on their home world of Sonora.
Due to Allora letting her emotions get the best of her, her powers surface and the army that they are hiding from are made aware of where she along with friends and family are hiding. This leads to them going on adventures to find the Eye of the Titans, however, she tries to keep it secret from her mum as her mum is so overprotective.
The four teens end up getting themselves into the most undesirable and dangerous situations as they make their way through their quest.
This is a fantastic first book in the series and it will be wonderful to see where Allora, Tanner, Katie and Dex go from here!
