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


From the author of Julia and the Shark and The
Mercies, chosen for the Richard & Judy Book Club


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
