The Caves of Wonder

Lucy & Dee



Kirsten Marion

Trapped and on the run!

Lucy and Dee are stranded in the magical world of Sericea with the young emperor Yidi as they flee his stepmother Xixi, the sorceress queen.

Hiding their true identities to protect both themselves and their new friend Mai, the group must make the hazardous trip across Sericea to the Caves of Wonder to find the White Tiger, a fabled warrior who could help them defeat Xixi.

Along their risky journey, developing talents and rumours of revolution challenge their resolve and friendship.

Dangers lurk around every corner, and if Lucy, Dee, and Yidi can’t face them together, their lives and the very fate of Sericea will be in peril.
