This is for Riordan fans who want to learn Latino and Hispanic mythology. Charlie has lost his parents and his house has burnt down. So he has it rough and then he sprouts horns, followed by feathers, and, well, read on for more. Charlie then finds himself walking into the myths his abuela told him as he was growing up. Charlie with his longtime crush, Violet Rey, sets out to discover what has really happened to his parents and the possibility that he is the Morphiling, a shape shifter, who will help protect the world from La Mano Peluda. Charlie Hernandez and the League of Shadows is a fun, adventurous read and a great way to learn a new mythology.
