Luka and the Fire of Life

Paperback

Price: $17.00

Overview

“You’ve reached the age at which people in this family cross the border into the magical world. It’s your turn for an adventure–yes, it’s finally here!” So says Haroun to his younger brother, twelve-year-old Luka. The adventure begins one beautiful starry night in the land of Alifbay, when Luka’s father, Rashid, falls suddenly into a sleep so deep that nothing and no one can rouse him. To save him from slipping away entirely, Luka embarks on a journey through the world of magic with his loyal companions, Bear, the dog, and Dog, the bear. Together they encounter a slew of fantastical creatures, strange allies, and challenging obstacles along the way–all in the hope of stealing the Fire of Life, a seemingly impossible and exceedingly treacherous task.
