In stock

In the second installment of the award-winning, critically acclaimed Lightfall series, Bea and Cad continue their quest to stop Kest, the mythic bird who stole the sun. Perfect for middle grade fans of Amulet and Avatar, Lightfall: Shadow of the Bird is another breathtaking journey into the magical world of Irpa, where epic battles and powerful creatures abound.

Creator Tim Probert brings readers yet another graphic novel chock-full of masterful world-building, engaging storytelling, captivating illustrations, and inspirational characters!

Shadow of the Bird picks up right where The Girl and the Galdurian left off—in a hidden settlement where Bea and Cad have been taken in by mysterious creatures known as the Arsai. Bea and Cad’s wounds have healed, but they must face the growing threat of Kest Ke Belenus, a dangerous being who won't stop until he collects all the Flames from the remaining Lights of Irpa, dooming the world to eternal darkness.

Meanwhile, the Feather Knights continue their raid on the city of Lealand. When the Light of Lealand falls and Kest's Feather Knights turn their attention next to the seaside city of Rinn, Bea and Cad are desperate to find a solution. The heroes seek out the help of an Irpan spirit long-thought extinct, the water spirit known as Lorgon, whose ancient wisdom may help them find a way to take down Kest and save Rinn from utter destruction.

But when their time with Lorgon presents more questions than answers about the extinction of their sun, Bea and Cad must decide what's more important: stopping Kest or uncovering the truth.

Full-color digital illustrations created with colored pencil, pencil, and Photoshop.
