Last Canto for the Dead (Outlaw Saints #2)

May 16

The night sky behind the skyscrapers has a purple glow. There are two Black young people in the center foreground with greenish swirls of light around them. The young man is wearing a white t-shirt and has one arm wrapped around the front of the young woman. There is blue light coming from his fingertips. She is wearing glasses and holding swords or knives to each side of her. They are looking in opposite directions to the sides of the cover.Last Canto for the Dead (Outlaw Saints #2) by Daniel José Older
Rick Riordan Presents

Two gods-turned-teenagers wage simultaneous battles in the Caribbean and Brooklyn in this sequel to Ballad & Dagger.

Healer. Destroyer. Creator. Mateo Matisse and Chela Hidalgo are not just two teenagers in love–they’re powerful gods in human form. Powerful enough to have saved their Brooklyn diaspora community from the wrath of an ancient enemy and to have raised their once-sunken native island of San Madrigal from the sea.

But soon they discover that their problems are far from over. On the shores of San Madrigal, two creature armies are battling for survival. And on the streets of Brooklyn, a once tight-knit community is divided, with two sides at each other’s throats. But worst of all, a heartbreaking prophecy rips these two young lovers apart, sending Mateo back to the city, where cops are now patrolling the streets, and keeping Chela tethered to the island, where chaos and death lurk around every corner.

Healer. Destroyer. Creator. As gods, their powers know no limits. But as teenagers–separated, desperate, grieving–what will become of them? And what will become of their people?

Join their battle and witness their love in this thrilling conclusion to the epic saga that began with BALLAD & DAGGER. — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
