Two-time Newbery Honor Award-winning author Laurence Yep brings his epic City Trilogy to an action-packed and heart-pounding conclusion

Scirye and her loyal companions chase the villainous Mr. Roland for a final showdown at Riye Srukalleyis, the City of Death, located in the heart of the Kushan Empire, along the Silk Road. There, they reunite with old friends, meet new allies, and confront an even more dangerous foe....

This is the thrilling conclusion to the trilogy that began with City of Fire and City of Ice by esteemed storyteller Laurence Yep, who has been one of the preeminent Asian-American authors for children for the past forty years.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Scirye and friends have one final opportunity to stop megalomaniac Roland from using magic weapons to conquer the world, but they are imprisoned by corrupt officials in Scirye's hometown and may miss their chance. Yep deftly drops backstory nuggets throughout this concluding volume of the City Trilogy, so new readers can enjoy the nonstop action and entertaining Silk Road history along with returning fans. There are some didactic moments as Yep ties up many loose ends, but overall this is a strong close to a rousing adventure. Bonus: The whole trilogy makes for an excellent read-aloud.--Welch, Cindy Copyright 2010 Booklist"
