For nine months of the year, the sands of the Sharani Desert are safe. The genesauri-giant, flying, serpentine monsters who hunt across the desert in enormous packs-lie dormant. 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 creatures' appearance, but this year, the genesauri have stopped following the rules.

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.

From the Author:

SANDS was a thrilling book to write.  Be prepared for plot twists and some fun world elements. It has a unique world bordering on the epic in scope, though this is a decidedly YA series.  Stay tuned for the sequels (there will be four of them), the first of which is called STORMS and is now available via Amazon as well.
As with all books, if you enjoyed SANDS, please leave an honest review and tell your friends and family about it.  The best way to keep authors producing books you like is to encourage others to enjoy their work as well.

About the Author:

Kevin L Nielsen has owned over 300 guinea pigs at the same time, been nationally ranked as a guinea pig breeder, plays duets through his nose on recorders to the embarrassment of many, and lived without air conditioning for almost 2 years.

He owes his publishing debut to a kindly librarian back in the 6th grade, the LTUE Symposium, a purple shirt, and a passing editor who didn't mind some mild sarcasm. Kevin writes epic, young adult, and urban fantasy. His writing group, Team Unleashed, keeps him grounded and away from purple prose about falcons, dragons, and worldbuilding.

Kevin currently resides in Utah with his amazing wife and two wonderful children. He's still writing and continuing a lifelong quest to become a dragon rider.

You can find Kevin on his website, kevinlnielsen.com
