Never underestimate the power of fandom could be said about many fandoms, including Rick Riordan’s dedicated readers! Daughter of the Deep has spent 10 weeks on the New York Times Middle Grade Best Sellers List and hit number one this week!
The highly anticipated book debuted at number two after facing publication delays due to supply chain issues seen throughout the publishing industry. However, it seems fans would agree that Daughter of the Deep was well worth the wait, as copies continue to fly off the shelves.
The plot is an homage to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, asking a fascinating question: what if that tale were real? The book centers on protagonist Ana Dakkar, a freshman at the elite Harding-Pencroft Academy who discovers she is a descendent of the legendary Captain Nemo. What follows is a thrilling adventure tale readers of all ages won’t want to miss.
Congratulations to Riordan, who is also keeping busy away from the pages with several projects in development for screen adaptations — including the Percy Jackson series, Kane Chronicles series, and Daughter of the Deep.
