Lightfall: The Girl and the Galdurian is by Tim Probert. It is book one in the Lightfall series.
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.
I absolutely adored Book 1. It is very well done and the art is amazing. So much detail and truely brings the characters Bea and Cad to life.
Younger readers will definitely enjoy this and I think it would be the perfect addition to a library collection. Although aimed for younger readers, readers of any age will definitely enjoy reading.
The character growth and narrative fully immerse readers into a world full of light.
I can’t wait for book 2 and definitely recommend this book!
