The fourth book in the enchanting graphic novel series 5 Worlds will see its heroes travel to Salassandra, a desert planet, to continue their mission of lighting ancient beacons to restore environmental harmony to an overheating galaxy. As with the previous three volumes The Sand Dancer,The Cobalt Prince, and The Red Maze, each book introduces a new ecosystem and inhabitants that expand the collective mythology behind 5 Worlds. In The Amber Anthem, Oona Lee will not only have to light a new beacon through elaborate dances that command mystical sands, but convince a crowd of 10,000 to join her in singing the titular anthem.
