The Prince of Soul and The Lighthouse is a comic sci-fi novel set in New Zealand. It follows the adventures of a high school student who discovers that he may be responsible for the end of the world, and is the only person who can prevent it. More importantly, though – does Kaisa like him, and is there any chance that his grandfather will just accept that he’s dead and let him get a decent night’s sleep?
Winner of the 2013 Sir Julius Vogel Award for best youth novel.
Sagt om boken:
... skriven på ett bländande språk – humoristisk, galen och helt underbar. - BTJ
“Swedish he may be, but Brounéus comes perilously close to having written the great New Zealand visionary fiction novel... a rollicking adventure – humorous and as exciting as an Indiana Jones escapade.” – Sunday Star-Times
“Great characters... laugh out loud material... just brilliant.” – Radio New Zealand
“Hilarious action and deep philosophical discussion. Reincarnation has never been treated like this before.” – Dominion Post
