by Marjorie Liu

In this middle-grade graphic novel, the first of a series, we meet Zuli. Raised by mystical bird spirits in the branches of the Great Tree, she's never ventured beyond this safe place. When a sinister force threatens the life-giving magic of the tree, she must get to the root of it. This adventure is bigger than anything Zuli imagined, bringing her face-to-face with an ancient dragon, the Witch-Queen, and most surprisingly of all, her true identity. Teny Issakhanian's illustrations soar, portraying ruins, lush forests and sweeping plains populated by goblins, wraiths, and griffins.
