(Ring of Fire series, Part 3)
In the shadow of Java's constantly erupting volcanos, the Blairs encounter a world of medieval courts, mystical shadow puppet plays, forgers of magical swords, healers with supernatural powers and whole communities ruled by the powerful Spirit of the South Seas. And among the Toraja people of the Celebes highlands, they share in the massive funeral rites of the last king of the tribe which believes its ancestors came from the stars in sky-ships.
