Two-time Newbery Honor Award-winning author Laurence Yep returns with the action-packed sequel to the critically-acclaimed City of Fire
From the islands of Hawaii, Scirye and her loyal companions have pursued the villainous Mr. Roland and evil dragon Badik all the way to the city of Nova Hafnia in the Arctic Circle. With the help of a trader and his daughter, the companions manage to chase their enemies into the vast and desolate Wastes. They are determined to stop Mr. Roland from getting his hands on the second of the Five Lost Treasures of Emperor Yü, which will give him the power to alter the very fabric of the universe.
But few who enter the Wastes ever return, and Scirye has no choice but to call on the Spirit of the North for help. As wild and unpredictable as the Arctic itself, will the Spirit turn out to be friend or foe?
