5-Worlds

5 Worlds Book 1: The Sand Warrior (US Only)

Written by: Alexis Siegel and Mark Siegel

Illustrated by: Xanthe Bouma, Matt Rockefeller, and Boya Sun

Release Date: May 2, 2017

Publisher: Random House Children’s Books

About the Book:

The #1 New York Times bestselling creator of Amulet, Kazu Kibuishi, hails this first book in this groundbreaking sci-fi/fantasy adventure series as “a magical journey, as fun as it is beautiful!” Think Star Wars meets Avatar: The Last Airbender!

The Five Worlds are on the brink of extinction unless five ancient and mysterious beacons are lit. When war erupts, three unlikely heroes will discover there’s more to themselves—and more to their worlds—than meets the eye. . . .

   • The clumsiest student at the Sand Dancer Academy, Oona Lee is a fighter with a destiny bigger than she could ever imagine.

   • A boy from the poorest slums, An Tzu has a surprising gift and a knack for getting out of sticky situations.

   • Star athlete Jax Amboy is beloved by an entire galaxy, but what good is that when he has no real friends?

 

When these three kids are forced to team up on an epic quest, it will take not one, not two, but 5 WORLDS to contain all the magic and adventure!

“This stellar team has created a gorgeous and entrancing world like no other!” —Noelle Stevenson, New York Times bestselling author of Nimona

“Epic action, adventure, and mystery will draw you in, but the heartfelt characters and their seemingly impossible journey will keep you turning the pages.” —Lisa Yee, author of the DC Super Hero Girls™ series
