What is this book about?

A fantasy quest filled with mystery and adventure!

The Kingdom of Lyrica was once kept safe and warm by the Firebird, whose feather and song was a blessing of peace and prosperity. But the Firebird disappeared, and Lyrica is now terrorized by the evil Spectress who wields her powers from within a volcano. All that remains is a mysterious message scrawled on the castle wall in the Queen’s own hand: Wind. Woman. Thief.

Young Prewitt has only known time without the Firebird, a life of constant cold (afraid to tempt the volcano monsters with even the feeblest fire). But there are whispers the kingdom’s princess survived the attack . . . and he is certain that if he can find her, together they can save Lyrica.
Princess Calliope has no memories beyond living on her barge on the underground lake. But as she nears her twelfth birthday, she is certain there is more to life than the walls of a cave.

Can they work together to solve the mystery of the message and find the Firebird to save the kingdom? They are about to  set off on a quest that puts them in more danger than either of them ever anticipated…
