Burning Magic

The third book in this thrilling fantasy series.

When Lily, aka the “witch queen”, and bat-rider extraordinaire Thorn travel to the Sultanate of Fire, things go terribly wrong. Instead of celebrating a reunion with their old friend K’leef, they are thrust into royal murder, an epic quest, and a deadly battle for the throne.
While investigating the murder, Lily learns shocking truths about her life that could destroy all she has achieved. Yet, among the ruins of her old life, she has the opportunity to become someone greater . . . and more terrifying.
Thorn and the magnificent bat, Hades, join the timid K’leef and the idiotic Gabriel Solar in a quest to find a phoenix. These fire birds are the key to saving the sultanate, but they nest within the Shardlands. The boys must defeat not only the monsters of that magical wilderness, but also rivals eager to claim the throne for themselves. Rivals that include a renegade from House Shadow . . .
Chilling surprises, ghostly encounters, and belly laughs are just some of the treats in store for readers of this burning-hot desert adventure.

The Author

Joshua Khan

Joshua Khan was raised on the stories of heroes, kings and queens until there was hardly any room for anything else. He can tell you where King Arthur was born* but not what he himself had for breakfast. With a head stuffed with tales of legendary knights, wizards and great and terrible monsters, it was inevitable Joshua would want to create some of his own.

Hence the SHADOW MAGIC trilogy, published in the US by Disney-Hyperion, and in the UK by Scholastic. Joshua has created a world of ancient sorcery, magnificent forests, dark secrets and really, really big vampire bats.

He lives in London with his family, but he’d rather live in a castle. It wouldn’t have to be very big, just as long as it had battlements.

*Tintagel Castle, in case you were wondering.
