New York Times bestselling author Kazu Kibuishi says of Lightfall: Beautifully drawn. Tim Probert has created a world readers will want to visit.

For fans of Amulet and middle grade readers who love sweeping worlds like Star Wars, the first book of the Lightfall series introduces Bea and Cad, two unlikely friends who get swept up in an epic quest to save their world from falling into eternal darkness.

Deep in the heart of the planet Irpa stands the Salty Pig's House of Tonics & Tinctures, home of the wise Pig Wizard and his adopted granddaughter, Bea. As keepers of the Endless Flame, they live a quiet and peaceful life, crafting medicines and potions for the people of their once-prosperous world.

All that changes one day when, while walking through the woods, Bea meets Cad, a member of the Galdurians, an ancient race thought to be long-extinct. Cad believes that if anyone can help him find his missing people, it's the Pig Wizard.

But when the two arrive home, the Pig Wizard is nowhere to be found-all that's left is the Jar of Endless Flame and a mysterious note. Fearing for the Pig Wizard's safety, Bea and Cad set out across Irpa to find him, while danger fights its way out of the shadows and into the light.

Will these two unexpected friends find the beloved Pig Wizard and prevent eternal darkness from blanketing their world Or has Irpa truly seen its last sunrise Praise for Lightfall Kirkus Best Books of 2020 Fall 2020 Indie Next List Junior Library Guild Selection 2021 Texas Library Association's Little Maverick Graphic Novels Reading List Selection

Reviews for Lightfall: The Girl and the Galdurian (GN)

Beautifully drawn. Tim Probert has created a world readers will want to visit. -- Kazu Kibuishi, author of <em>Amulet</em> Thoroughly satisfying, with a cliffhanger ending that's sure to hook readers. -- <em>Kirkus Reviews </em>(starred review) Probert's cinematic, full-color artwork is packed with inventive creatures and vivid landscapes perfectly in keeping with the fantasy adventure atmosphere. -- <em>Booklist</em> Probert's debut combines engaging fantasy elements: mysterious enemies, fateful responsibility, and death-defying action against a variety of foes. Detailed, jewel-colored art illuminates Irpa's radiance as Bea's journey unveils sweeping landscapes, Ghibli-esque character design, and luminous architecture. Worried Bea and enthusiastic Cad quickly become a team that readers can root for, and compelling unsolved mysteries demand a follow-up. -- <em>Publishers Weekly</em>
