In the follow-up to 'City Of The Beasts', internationally celebrated author Isabel Allende leads readers on a fantastical
voyage to another remote corner of the world.
Not long has passed since teenager Alexander Cold followed his bold grandmother into the heart of the Amazon to uncover its legendary Beast. This time, reporter Kate Cold escorts her grandson and his closest friend, Nadia, along with the photographers from International Geographic, to an exotic sovereignty in the peaks of the Himalayas. Their task is to locate its fabled golden dragon, a sacred statue and priceless key to the kingdom.
In their chase to reach the statue before it is threatened by an American entrepreneur, Alexander and Nadia must use the transcendent power of their totemic animal spirits - Jaguar and Eagle. And with the aid of a sage Buddhist monk, his young royal disciple and a fierce tribe of Yeti warriors, the group faces an extraordinary battle to protect the holy rule of the golden dragon.
Filled with feats of physical daring, descriptions of incredible geographical backdrops, and the warmth of human relationships, 'The Kingdom Of The Golden Dragon' will satisfy every reader's thirst for escapist adventure.
