A mysterious stranger. A murderous ambush and a sinister plot in the deep desert.
Alissa returns home from university, still haunted by the death of her sister and a restlessness that keeps drawing her back into the great sand sea of Irithen, the dangerous heart of a remote province on a distant planet.
Her attempt to save the life of the young and charismatic Talin throws her into a whirlwind of hidden agendas and a ruthless military attack. Only her mental and physical skills can keep her alive in this vast expanse of sand, heat, giant lizards and poisonous scorpions.
Learning to fly a huge condor before it kills her would help as well.
Duneflyer is the first book in the Stormweaver series, the far-future fantasy epic by Jay Aspen.
