Chapter One

Lila dreams of being a firework-maker like her father. But it isn't all about creating Crackle-Dragons and Golden Sneezes. Like every firework-maker before her, Lila must also make a nightmarish journey to battle Razvani, the evil Fire-Fiend! On her journey, she outwits pirates, outlandish beasts and a furious emperor.
