Product Description

Here’s what we call wow-factor. A boy so brave he flies into the clouds on a kite to listen to the spirits of the dead. Forget surfing. Haoyou is the Kite Rider – a boy with a job like no other. Strapped to a kite and sent into the heavens, to carry messages back to Earth from there. But a stunt like that is bound to turn heads (just like this book.) Haoyou is soon winning not just admirers but deadly enemies. The Jade Circus offers him a way to see the world, and even perform before the great Kublai Khan himself. But is the circus master leading Haoyou into terrible danger? Ghosts and family, prophecy and fate; all the exotic sights, smells and sounds of Ancient China. A tale unlike any you have ever read, to set your imagination soaring.
