I'm going to die. I'm lost and i'm going to die.

Fire and Ice
The adventure continues in this third book in the New York Times bestselling series.
Erdas is a land of balance. A rare link, the spirit animal bond, bridges the human and animal worlds. Conor, Abeke, Meilin, and Rollan each have this gift-and the grave responsibility that comes with it.
But the Conquerors are trying to destroy this balance. They're swallowing whole cities in their rush for power-including Meilin's home. Fed up with waiting and ready to fight, Meilin has set off into enemy territory with her spirit animal, a panda named Jhi. Her friends aren't far behind . . . but they're not the only ones.
The enemy is everywhere.
- There is an alternate version of the cover, where Jhi's head is turned forwards.
- This is the only book in the series to have two authors.
