Meet Wylah: warrior, hero and friend. Her adventures have been 40,000 years in the making!
Wylah is brave, clever and strong-willed, and all her best friends are giant megafauna animals.
Wylah dreams of becoming an art teacher like her greatly respected Grandmother. But when her tribe is attacked by the Dragon Army and taken captive, Wylah must summon the courage to unite the five Guardians and save her people.
But she isn't a warrior. Not yet, anyway.
What will it take for Wylah to become a warrior, like her Grandmother before her?
Introducing an unforgettable cast of characters, Wylah: The Koorie Warrior is a heart-stopping and imaginative adventure, inspired by First Nations history and grounded in culture.
Wylah is Co-Written by Jordan Gould a Proud Peek Whurrong Man and Richard Pritchard an Indigenous Samoan.
Imagine living with giant wombats the size of your house or kangaroos taller than a lamp post or birds the size of a football field.
Welcome to Wylah's world, where gigantic megafauna Guardians protect their tribes from invading dragons and magical Totems are used in epic battles.
Wylah: The Koorie Warrior is a rip-roaring, non-stop action-adventure, fun ride on an epic Cultural and Megafauna scale!
This is the first book in a series that is set to ignite the imagination of Australian historical fantasy.
