Description

""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.
