What to Expect: Friendship, problem-solving, teamwork, adventure, fantasy

Kase Garrick has been looking forward to training as a warrior at the Academy for his whole life, but things start to go wrong almost the moment he arrives. After an accidental altercation with his sister’s boyfriend, he finds himself in the discipline room, trapped with a wizard fire-starter and a trespassing scholar. However, to Kase’s surprise, this looks like the start of two unlikely friendships: unlikely because, as he learns, scholars, wizards, and warriors don’t mix at the Academy. Soon, Kase and his new friends will face the ultimate test: can their combined talents help them succeed where others have failed in the ultimate challenge of the Quest series?

A light and easy-going fantasy, How to Set the World on Fire delivers important lessons about friendship, self-control, teamwork, and self-belief through an exciting and imaginative narrative. Kase and his friends are relatable characters, and readers will learn alongside them as they grow and challenge themselves. The story is filled with fun fantasy details, from invisible unicorns and pregnant langaras to magical mirrors that bear a striking resemblance to modern cell phones.

How to Set the World on Fire is enjoyable and uplifting, perfect for fans of traditional fantasy adventures.
