Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents a second earth-shattering adventure based on Mesopotamian mythology by Sarwat Chadda, author of City of the Plague God.
*"Chadda excels in this action-packed adventure, peppered with scenes examining Western theft of cultural artifacts, xenophobia, and Islamophobia and grounded in emotional depth and tenderness for humanity. An epic tale that contains multitudes."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
