Tristan Strong just lost his best friend, and now on top of everything else, he accidentally punched a hole in the universe. As in all the Rick Riordan Presents stories, Tristan goes on a mythological adventure. What sets this book apart from others I’ve read from the same imprint is that in addition to exploring the rich cultural mythology of West Africa, Tristan also encounters folk heroes from the American tradition (like John Henry and the Brer Rabbit) who were deeply inspired by those original myths.
