Tales of Elemental Spirits
A collection of stories by

 
 
Master storytellers Robin McKinley and Peter Dickinson, the team behind Water: Tales of Elemental Spirits, collaborate again to create five captivating tales incorporating the element of fire.

In McKinley's 'First Flight,' a boy and his pet foogit unexpectedly take a dangerous ride on a dragon, and her 'Hellhound' stars a mysterious dog as a key player in an eerie graveyard showdown. Dickinson introduces a young man who must defeat the creature threatening his clan in 'Fireworm,' a slave who saves his village with a fiery magic spell in 'Salamander Man,' and a girl whose new friend, the guardian of a mystical bird, is much older than he appears in 'Phoenix.'

With time periods ranging from prehistoric to present day, and settings as varied as a graveyard, a medieval marketplace and a dragon academy, these stories are sure to intrigue and delight the authors' longtime fans and newcomers alike.
