Product description

Think riding a surfboard is daring? Haoyou is the Kite Rider: strapped to a kite and sent into the heavens, to bring back messages from the dead. Well – a stunt like that is bound to turn heads. Soon this brave kid is winning both admirers and deadly enemies. When he’s hired by the Jade Circus, it’s a chance for Haoyou to see the world. He’ll even perform before the great Kublai Khan himself. But is the circus master leading Haoyou into deadly danger? Prophecy and fate. Ghosts and family. All the exotic sights and sounds of Ancient China. A bold classic unlike any book you’ve ever read, to set your imagination soaring.
