Even though their parents disappeared during a hunt three months ago, seventeen-year-old Indi and his siblings, Beleza, Oscar, and Zulu, continue to roam the Mediterranean on their sailboat and hunt down monsters–but Indi yearns for a more settled life for his family, and he hopes that his parents’ journal with its tantalizing hints of a treasure, will provide them all with the means of escape from their nomadic and dangerous life before it is too late.
Why I am Excited About It:
I am intrigued by two things about this book: the setting and the characters. These two factors are unique as they are rarely ever featured in books. The cast of characters are siblings and very few of the YA novels that I have read feature siblings so I am excited to see what that is going to be like. The setting of the Mediterranean is one that I can not recall ever reading about, well except for maybe The Heroes of Olympus. But even more so the fact that this world has monsters. And treasure. But the real question is, are these monsters and treasures real or are they the demons inside us and the virtues that are priceless but intangible.
