The Golden Door

The walled city of Weld is under attack from ferocious flying creatures that raid in the night, bringing death and destruction. The Warden calls for volunteers to find and destroy the enemy invaders, and the heroes of Weld answer the call one by one, never to return. Rye is too young to go, but his brothers are among the lost and he is determined to find them. Will he get the chance to save them? What terrors await him beyond the Wall? This gripping tale of a scarred but enchanting world is the first in a stirring fantasy trilogy from Emily Rodda, the internationally bestselling author of the Deltora Quest series.
