Twenty-seven days is how long it should have taken Evin to get home to find her brother and dad after the world turned into an angry ocean of beige sand.
Seven years, strange creatures, rifle training, and a puppy is how long it actually took to find anything familiar.
She can get to Death Valley and can get home that way.
But she finds herself fighting her way through until she meets an unlikely ally.
A war fairy.
An intimidating, weapon smithing healer who makes it his job to help her find her way to her family again.
If only it were that easy.
