About the Book
Just One Boy…. Jack McKinley is an ordinary kid with an extraordinary problem. In six months, Jack is going to die.
Just One Mission… After Jack collapses in the middle of a busy street, he’s whisked off to a strange hospital in a strange place. There are armed guards and weird kids and fantastic creatures, not to mention no parents, no phones, and no possibility of escape. The place is run by an odd professor named Bhegad, who tell Jack that what’s killing him is a genetic trait inherited from the prince of a long lost civilization. It’s destroying Jack by making him too strong too fast. He’ll need to stay strong, through because it’s up to him to save the world.
Just One Problem…. That long lost civilization sank when seven magic Loculi were stolen and hidden around the world. Now Jack and his friends must find the Loculi before they fall into the wrong hands. If they don’t, they will never be cured, that lost world will rise, oceans will be displaced, and life as we know it will pretty much end.
No one ever asked Jack if he wanted to be a hero. He just has to be one. One kid. One mission. One big problem. The thrills begin in The Colossus Rises, the first installment in the newest adventure from master storyteller Peter Lerangis.

My Review: The Colossus Rises, is the first installment in the epic seven-book adventure series Seven Wonders. If you’re a fan of Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series you will enjoy reading Seven Wonders. This book is full of action and adventure.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
