Description

Arlo Finch and the Rangers of Pine Mountain Company are headed to Camp Redfeather for two weeks of archery, canoeing, and investigating the ancient monster who lurks in the lake's icy waters.

But before they've even gotten on the bus, a major discovery puts Arlo, Indra, and Wu in jeopardy. Forces from beyond the Long Woods are after a mysterious item that only Arlo can recover. Meanwhile, the normally gentle forest spirits seem aligned against him.

New faces and sudden departures change the dynamics of the Blue Patrol. But it's the mystery of the long-lost Yellow Patrol that sends Arlo across the Lake of the Moon and into a thrilling new adventure. Once he uncovers the secret history Uncle Wade has been protecting, nothing will ever be the same.

Review quote

Praise for Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire

"Accomplished screenwriter August artfully thrusts readers into a whole new world, right alongside Arlo . . . This is just the first volume in a new series, so readers won't have to wait long to plunge back into the mysterious Long Woods." --Booklist

"Much like other popular series such as 'Percy Jackson, ' [this is] an exciting fantasy novel grounded in reality with a strong emphasis on friendships and great characters. This new series will appeal to fans of mystery and adventure as well as reluctant readers." --School Library Journal

"The mysteries--from what makes Arlo a target to why a girl who vanished years ago has reappeared to him and only him--become increasingly more compelling as more pieces are revealed . . . Readers will find Arlo relatable, especially if they've ever struggled to fit in themselves." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A thrilling adventure full of magic and wonder. John August is a master storyteller." --Ransom Riggs, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

"A fast, fun, and fearless tale. Arlo's adventures feel both completely real and entirely magical. I loved it!" --Ally Condie, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Matched and Summerlost

"A masterful mix of mystery and adventure, set in a supernatural scouting troop. Reading this book made me wish I hadn't dropped out of Cub Scouts." --Geoff Rodkey, New York Times-bestselling author of the Tapper Twins series
