Inner Earth, Agartha, a land where the color of your Aura defines you, losing the entire population of greens to the war left a visible void.
Ethan, a fourteen-year-old young man, discovers he has a green aura, the last of an extinct race. He leaves the school of Nafoura in search of the truth about the fate of the greens, and to find a home to call his own.
Joined by a girl from our earth, and an exiled shapeshifter, Ethan must race to the Chronicler of Agartha in search of answers.
But Ethan has a mark on his head by the very woman who decimated his people, doggedly chasing after him for nefarious reasons of her own.
Ethan must walk a thin line to get his answers, inadvertently stepping into the web of a prophecy he knows nothing about, one which may lead to salvation, or to a promise of doom for his and our world.
The Green Boy is the first installment in The Chronicles of Agartha. It is set to be published February 20th this year! The novel is written by Sherif Guiguis and Isaac Michaan. Michaan was generous enough to provide me with an ARC, so before we go any further, a huge thank you for the opportunity to read and review this before it hits shelves! Now on to the good stuff. The Green Boy is uniquely centered around the legend of the Agartha, but I’m getting ahead of myself. The story follows Ethan, our main protagonist and window into the world of Agatha, a world beneath our own. Ethan exists in a world filled with great beasts of legend… a world where having extortionary abilities is common place. Readers will follow Ethan as he discovers friends and foes and finds answers to questions that seem to follow him. Now back to that Agartha thing. If you know what that is great! You can skip this next bit. If not stick with me because you will need this before your can truly appreciate this novel.
The Agartha is a legendary land that is believed to be located inside the earth. It falls in line with the hollow earth theory. And you thought flat earthers were hard to follow. Ok but in all seriousness the more I looked into this modern-day legend the more intrigued I was and the more I was able to appreciate the setting of this novel. Unfortunately, I had no idea that this legend even existed going in which led to A LOT of initial confusion on my part. I would recommend just doing a light google search and you are ready to read.
