The Saker Falcon / "Aavikkohaukka" is a fantasy book for children and young adults. It is my first novel, and the cover is my own design, drawn by hand with my favorite media, watercolor.
"The Saker Falcon" is a magical adventure story of a 14 -year-old boy in the pursuit of his dream. It's about courage, loyalty and friendship that can cross oceans. The plot takes the reader from a small northern fishing village to a mysterious lighthouse-island and further south to the exotic desert. I have used in the cover elements and characters from the story and hope to have captured thrilling yet enchanting atmosphere.
Published in Finland with the original title "Aavikkohaukka", Karisto Oy, 2014.
