The second book in a trilogy about the interaction of Neanderthals and Cro-Magnons, "Spirit Fire" is an epic adventure that sweeps across pre-historic Europe, Asia, and Alaska, as the man who invented war embarks on a quest to conquer the world. Rumors of unusual people living in caves far to the east of the warriors' land attract warrior leader Warlog. His shaman, Rayloc, fears the strangers are really Droglits, servants of evil from deep in the earth who have come to destroy his way of life. In the east, Sotif, History Man of The Alliance between Earth People and Sun People, tries to guard his culture against changes that could induce Mother Earth to withdraw her blessings. But Warlog is intent upon breaking The Alliance by subjugating the Sun People and destroying the Earth People. Faced with this threat, Sotif races to find the Spirit Fire to bring hope to his people and help them defeat Warlog. The key to success ultimately lies in the hands of Tincolad, one of Warlog's warriors captured by The Alliance. Will Sotif find the Spirit Fire in time? Can Tincolad be persuaded to help The Alliance before it is too late for the Earth People?

Shortlisted for the 2014 William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award National Geographic Adventurer of the Year 2014 "The most dominating endurance athlete of his generation." -- The New York Times An exceptional athlete. A dominating force. An extraordinary person. Kilian Jornet has conquered some of the toughest physical tests on the planet. He has run up and down Mt. Kilimanjaro faster than any other human being, and struck down world records in every challenge that has been proposed, all before the age of 25. Redefining what is possible, Jornet continually pushes the limits of human ability, astonishing competitors with his near-superhuman fitness and ability. Born and raised at 6,000 feet above sea level in the Spanish Pyrenees, Jornet climbed an 11,000 foot mountain -- the highest mountain in the region -- at age 5. Now Jornet adores the mountains with the same ferocity with which he runs them. In Run or Die he shares his passion, inviting readers into a fascinating world rich with the beauty of rugged trails and mountain vistas, the pulse-pounding drama of racing, and an intense love for sport and the landscapes that surround him. In his book, Jornet describes his record-breaking runs at Lake Tahoe, Western States 100, Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, and Mount Kilimanjaro--the first of his ambitious Summits of My Life project in which Jornet will attempt to break records climbing the highest peaks on each continent. In turns inspiring, insightful, candid, and deeply personal, this is a book written from the heart of the world's greatest endurance runner, for whom life presents one simple choice: Run. Or die. "Trail running's first true breakout star, [Jornet] has yet to find a record he can't shatter." -- Runner's World
