If there’s one thing Rick Riordan knows how to do it’s take kids on a thrill ride they’ll never forget! I was super excited to read Daughter of the Deep, an all-new story that’s full of action, adventure, and throwbacks to classic Jules Verne.
In a reality where 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is based deeply in truth, Ana Dakkar and her brother Dev are students at a high school dedicated to training the next generation of deep sea explorers. But it doesn’t take long before Ana finds herself dragged into a conflict that goes far beyond the school’s usual homework and practical experiences.
Daughter of the Deep whisks readers away on a high stakes adventure that will leave them wanting more! It’s definitely a great choice for Rick Riordan fans but it’s also worth picking up for readers who haven’t read anything by Rick Riordan before – or even those weren’t big fans of his mythological series.
About the Book
New York Times #1 best-selling author Rick Riordan pays homage to Jules Verne in his exciting modern take on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
Ana Dakkar is a freshman at Harding-Pencroft Academy, a five-year high school that graduates the best marine scientists, naval warriors, navigators, and underwater explorers in the world. Ana’s parents died while on a scientific expedition two years ago, and the only family’s she’s got left is her older brother, Dev, also a student at HP. Ana’s freshman year culminates with the class’s weekend trial at sea, the details of which have been kept secret. She only hopes she has what it’ll take to succeed. All her worries are blown out of the water when, on the bus ride to the ship, Ana and her schoolmates witness a terrible tragedy that will change the trajectory of their lives.
But wait, there’s more. The professor accompanying them informs Ana that their rival school, Land Institute, and Harding-Pencroft have been fighting a cold war for a hundred and fifty years. Now that cold war has been turned up to a full broil, and the freshman are in danger of becoming fish food. In a race against deadly enemies, Ana will make amazing friends and astounding discoveries about her heritage as she puts her leadership skills to the test for the first time.
Rick Riordan’s trademark humor, fast-paced action, and wide cast of characters are on full display in this undersea adventure.

“Daughter of the Deep took me back sixty-seven years, to when I dreamed of becoming Captain Nemo.
