Publisher Comments:

On the island of Jayangan, old beliefs and magic exist side by side with new pop songs and motorcycles. . . .

Adi is a fisherman's son, proud to be studying with the greatest of traditional sword makers. Dewi is the daughter of a healer, curious about the world beyond her quiet village.

Neither Adi nor Dewi is prepared for the sudden violence that transforms their lives. Both are propelled into an epic battle in which even the mystical spirits of Jayangan are threatened and helpless.

Charged with a desperate quest to find the mysterious Snow, Fire, and Sword, Adi and Dewi know only that if they fail, their beloved homeland will fall to an evil shrouded in impenetrable darkness. Can two children of the modern world succeed where the most powerful and ancient spirits cannot?

Set against the backdrop of a mythic Indonesia, Sophie Masson's gripping fantasy will leave readers breathless.

Synopsis:

In a mythic Indonesia where magic and ritual meet pop songs and motorcycles, two teens are on a desperate quest to prevent their beloved homeland from falling to an evil shrouded in darkness.
