Over a million hectares of wild bush-clad land and one young hunter …

Nissa Marshall knows that something is hiding deep in the forests of Fiordland National Park – she’s seen their lights in the trees. But what are they, and why does no one else seem to notice them?

When Nissa abandons her school camp to track down the mysterious lights, she finds herself lost in a dangerous wonderland. And she’s not the only one at risk – the forest and the creatures in it are under threat too.

She wants to help, but what can a school kid do where adults have failed? And can she find her way back? In Fiordland, the lost usually stay lost.

Spark Hunter is an epic Kiwi adventure-fantasy – a story of survival in one of the world’s last great wildernesses.
