Hargrave creates a spellbinding world of magic, myth and adventure'
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.
