Aki and the Spheres of Time marks the fourth acquisition by Sungrazer, the independent imprint founded by bestselling author, Josephine Angelini.
Perfect for fans of Rick Riordan, Aki and the Spheres of Time is the story of a young boy’s resilience in his fight against unimaginable odds, as he is transported into a world where magic, mystery, and courage all converge in a quest to conquer the secrets that lie inside the realm of the Parallel Crystals.
Aki's world is forever altered when he stumbles upon an extraordinary gift—the ability to traverse distant realms, a power bestowed upon him by the mysterious Sphere of Time. Fueled by this newfound talent, Aki embarks on an odyssey that unravels the boundaries between reality and myth, where gods and creatures once dismissed as legends come to life, challenging the very fabric of his existence.
