The Lion King meets Wings of Fire in the magical rainforest kingdom of Caldera in this new middle grade animal fantasy series from New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award finalist Eliot Schrefer.

Caldera has forever been divided into those animals who walk by night and those who walk by day. Nightwalker panthers, like young Mez and her beloved sister, have always feared daywalkers as creatures of myth and legend. Until the eclipse.

Now Mez has discovered that she can cross the Veil and enter the daylight world. Her magical power has unknown depths, but she must rush to discover it after a mysterious stranger arrives at her family’s den, bearing warnings of a reawakened evil.

Saving Caldera means Mez must leave her sister behind and unite an unlikely group of animal friends to unravel an ancient mystery and protect their rainforest home.

    The Lost Rainforest: Mez's Magic is full of adventure and animals. It's really fun to read and when I read it I sort of see a movie of what's happening.

      This is a good book if you are into animals and fantasy so it was the perfect combination for me, sometimes it got confusing like in the start but later on it was really good.

        I loved the concept, and enjoyed the story, but for some reason it just didn't interest me enough to want to continue to read the rest of the series. Recommended for those interested in the rain forest.

            I loved this book because it was so interesting about how the black panther worked with the other special animals to defeat a person who she had trusted. It was unexpected that the snake was the one who tried to kill the other special animals that he made them trust him. Also I never knew that the Queen ant would be part of the story too. It was really exiting and strange about how the black panther saved all the other animals and realizes that if all the remaining animals work together, they could defeat the snake.

              This book was really special. It had a unique plot and a captivating setting and characters. I've never read anything like this before. Its main characters were magical animals and the plot was funny and action-packed. I think many kids will like this book.
