Rise and Fall

Rise and Fall

Series: Spirit Animals (Book #6)
by Eliot Schrefer Illustrated by Nicola Barber

Deep in the desert there sits a beautiful oasis, ruled by a monarch unlike any other in Erdas. His name is Cabaro, the Great Lion, and he reigns over a kingdom of animals, jealously guarding his golden talisman. No human has ever set foot in the Great Beast's territory. The journey to his oasis is impossible.

As a team, Conor, Abeke, Meilin, and Rollan have achieved the impossible before. But now the team is broken, the friends scattered by a devastating betrayal.

The young heroes and their spirit animals have already sacrificed much in their quest for the talismans. But with the world crumbling all around them, and a ruthless enemy opposing their every move, their greatest sacrifices are yet to come.
