Millwood Hargrave creates a spellbinding world of 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.
thrilling and magical, Kiran Millwood Hargrave's debut novel
has all the makings of a modern classic.
