Pub Date 8/1/23
A warrior’s power lies not in his weapons but in his heart.
Batu is just an ordinary kid in present-day Almaty, worried about bullies, school, and his mom’s new baby…until the day he meets Aspara, the Golden Warrior.
Aspara steps straight out of Batu’s notebook cover—and out of Kazakhstan’s past.
Aspara has been waiting hundreds of years to be summoned to the human world and to finally get his chance to search for the Golden Cup, a magical talisman sent down from the heavens.
When the Golden Cup was lost, Aspara watched as many of his friends and family were killed or disappeared.
Craving adventure and a sense of purpose, Batu sets out with Aspara and his own friends to find the Golden Cup, plunging them into an adventure through a world where myths come alive.
But there are others looking for the Cup, and they’ll do anything to make sure the kids fail.
Will Batu and his friends make it out alive (and make it home in time for dinner)?
