The surface of the lagoon began to tremble and shake.
Moving sinuously, the Great Lion emerged at the far side.

–Book Quote, (from Chapter 6: Cabaro)

Rise and Fall is the sixth book in the series, written by Eliot Schrefer. Conor, Briggan, and Cabaro (along with his pride) are depicted on the cover.

Official Summary

Deep in the desert there sits a beautiful oasis, ruled by a monarch unlike any other in Erdas. His name is Cabaro, the Great Lion, and he reigns over a kingdom of animals, jealously guarding his golden talisman. No human has ever set foot in the Great Beast’s territory. The journey to his oasis is impossible. 

As a team, Conor, Abeke, Meilin, and Rollan have achieved the impossible before. But now that team is broken — the friends scattered by a devastating betrayal.

The young heroes and their spirit animals have already sacrificed much in their quest for the talismans. But with the world crumbling all around them — and a ruthless enemy opposing their every move — their greatest sacrifices are yet to come.
