Luka and the Fire of Life

by Salman Rushdie

Luka coverLuka, along with his pets, dog and bear, set off into a magical world created by his father, Rashid Khalifa. This story revolves around Luka's journey as he retrieves the "Fire of Life" in order to save his father's life.

Luka and the Fire of Life is one of those novels that has you completely enthralled in the story. The novel incorporates several figures from various mythologies along with references to the tangible world. 

I would recommend this book to anyone 10 and up that enjoys fictional adventures/travels. It's a great read that emphasizes a son's love for his father. All in all, it's a really great book!
