When Bartlett and Jacques le Grand are held captive in the City of Flames, it looks as though their adventuring days are over ...unless they can fetch the one impossible thing people long for in this mysterious underground kingdom. Can they survive the sunbaked fields of stone, outwit the Pasha and his guards and rescue Gozo from a life of luxury, marzipan and pomegranates? Bartlett must draw on all his legendary powers of Inventiveness, Desperation and Perseverance to bring them through. In this exciting sequel to Bartlett and the Ice Voyage, award-winning author Odo Hirsch tells a richly exotic tale of action, humour and intrigue.
