Lila dreams of becoming a firework-maker like her father. But to fulfil her destiny, she must make a nightmarish journey to battle Razvani, the evil Fire-Fiend. On her journey, she outwits pirates, outlandish beasts, and a furious emperor. But will she survive the Fire-Fiend’s blazing wrath? Inspired by Philip Pullman’s own love of fireworks and their names – ‘Incandescent Fountain,’ ‘Golden Vesuvius’ – this exotic, shimmering story crackles with suspense and wonder. It fuses no-holds-barred fantasy adventure, full of vivid characters and desperate battles, with a moving moral about determination and finding the courage to follow one’s heart.
