A world in the balance.
A boy with a fateful choice.
A girl with golden wings.

Jack Zulu explores a new realm in this fantastic adventure that stretches beyond Earth and into a world on the edge of destruction. Jack must search for answers about his fallen father’s story and risk everything to save the cause at the lost city of gold.

  • Fast paced and fantastically fun. A great book especially for a young boy that loves adventure!


  • It's difficult to find stories that feed the heart and soul...brilliant adventure that is full of hope and longing, while also being epic in scope and a delight to read!


  • The family culture of storytelling shines bright in Jack Zulu. I appreciated the old-fashioned adventure feel.


“This father-son duo have combined forces to create an enchanting, mythical world full of the types of dangers that create daring heroes and heroines. Our souls crave meaningful stories, and Jack Zulu delivers.”

Ginny Yurich, 1000 Hours Outside
