Overview

Ever since her childhood, spent watching her father in his workshop, Lila has shown a marked talent for pyrotechnics, even inventing her own fireworks with names like Tumbling Demons and Shimmering Coins. When Lila tells her father she'd like to become a master firework-maker, he's shocked. Firework-making is no job for a girl, he tells her. Nevertheless, Lila decides to run away to Mount Merapi, where every firework-maker must go to claim royal sulphur from Razvani the Fire-Fiend. Along the way, she meets pirates, wild animals, and supernatural beings until, at last, Lila must face the scariest obstacle of all: her own fear.
