magic, myth and adventure’ EMMA CARROLL
to leave her island, Isabella dreams of the faraway lands her
cartographer father once mapped. When her friend disappears, she
volunteers to guide the search. The world beyond the walls is a monster-filled
wasteland – and beneath the dry rivers and smoking
mountains, a fire demon is stirring from its sleep. Soon, following
her map, her heart and an ancient myth, Isabella discovers the
true end of her journey: to save the island itself.
A beautifully written, multi award-winning story of friendship,
discovery, myths and magic for any age – perfect
for fans of Philip Pullman, Frances Hardinge or Katherine Rundell.
Set in an extensive and stunningly-imagined parallel
world imbued with magical realism.
A gorgeous gift for readers young and old – will stay
with you long after reading.
