Lightfall: The Girl and the Galdurian


In the first book of the Lightfall series, Bea and Cad are two unlikely friends who get swept up in a quest way above their pay grade to save their world from falling into eternal darkness. For fans of Amulet and middle grade readers who love sweeping worlds such as Star Wars, comes Tim Probert’s author-illustrator debut, Lightfall: The Girl & the Galdurian.

Deep in the heart of the planet Irpa stands the Salty Pig’s Tonics & Tinctures, home of the wise Pig Wizard and his adopted granddaughter, Bea. Keepers of the Endless Flame, they live a quiet and peaceful life, crafting medicines and potions for the people of their once-prosperous world.

All that changes when Bea meets Cad, a member of the Galdurians, a race thought to be long-extinct. Cad believes that if anyone can help him find his missing people, it’s the Pig Wizard. But when the two arrive home, the Pig Wizard is nowhere to be found—all that’s left is the Jar of Endless Flame and a mysterious note. Fearing for the Pig Wizard’s safety, Bea and Cad set out across Irpa to find him.

Meanwhile, a dangerous being grows more powerful each day, and will stop at nothing to rid the world of whatever light it has left.

Will these two unexpected friends find the beloved Pig Wizard and prevent eternal darkness from blanketing their world? Or has Irpa finally seen its last sunrise?
