Summary

Forbidden to leave her island, Isabella dreams of the faraway lands her cartographer father once mapped. When her best friend disappears, she's determined to be part of the search party.

Guided by an ancient map and her knowledge of the stars, Isabella navigates the island's dangerous Forgotten Territories. But beneath the dry rivers and dead forests, a fiery myth is stirring from its sleep.

Prefer to read it...

The narrator is strong and I liked the book, but something about the combination didn't quite work for me. I read this instead and preferred it.

Lovely story

Not my usual genre but I did enjoy it. Vivid descriptions and beautiful writing I could imagine myself there on the island.
