Forbidden

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.
