????? "With an engrossing world, vivid characters, and awesome creatures galore, Sands is a fun ride!" —Jared Garrett, Author of Beat.

“Lhaurel paused at the intersection of two passages, trying to decide if she should go back and accept her pending marriage or chance the desert sands on her own. If she was honest with herself, she knew there wasn’t really much of a choice.” —From Sands (Sharani Series, Book 1), by Kevin L. Nielsen.

For nine months of the year, the sands of the Sharani are safe from genesauri—the giant, flying, serpentine monsters that prowl the desert in packs.

The smallest of their kind is able to take down a single man with ease, and the largest is able to swallow entire clans. The people of the desert have always been able to predict the patterns of the creatures' migration… until now.

When the genesauri suddenly attack her clan, seventeen-year-old Lhaurel draws a sword in her people’s defense—a forbidden practice for women of any clan—and is sentenced to death by her own people.

Chained to a rock and left to be eaten by the next wave of genesauri, Lhaurel is rescued by a mysterious, elusive clan said to curse children at a glance, work unexplainable terrors, and disappear into the sands without a trace.

With the fate of the clans hanging in the balance, Lhaurel discovers she possesses a rare and uncontrollable power—one that will be tested as the next deadly genesauri attack looms on the horizon and the clash between clans grows more inevitable by the hour.

If you like desert fantasy action books, then you’ll love Sands!

Will Lhaurel be able to prove her power and withstand the test? Discover the fate of Lharel and her people by reading Sands today.
