Duty and curiosity call Miriam and Xander away from their tranquility and into a new storm of troubles. The road they travel is a dusty one as their new adventure leads them to the southern deserts of the dragon world. There they find a world of wind riders, ancient secrets, and feuds as old as the lords of dragons.
Among the secrets is a darkness that lurks from the edges of the desert to the far corners of the sand city of Hadia where the Priests of the Portal hold sway. Their arrival triggers a movement of shadows that leaves them at the whim of their foes and leaves Miriam with questions about her origins. She must begin to know herself before she can help her friends, or they will all end up as skeletons in the sand.

The beautiful sky above me. The green forest and fields below me. A handsome dragon lord behind me. Everything was perfect.
Well, almost perfect.
"Do we have to fly all the way to the desert!" I yelped.
Xander winced. My arms were wrapped tightly around his neck and my body was pressed close against his chest. "You did not wish to ride," he reminded me.
I glared at him. "I have a tender bottom, okay? It wouldn’t have taken a two-week trip. Besides-" I leaned back and admired his chest, "-not all the view is a terrifying death."
Xander smiled. "I am glad I could be of service."
I caught a peek over my shoulder at the woods far below us. They were the outlying forest of Thorontur, King of the Arbor Fae. There was also a little bit of green plains that represented Xander’s dragon territory.
I cringed and looked back up into Xander’s face. "You know, have you ever thought about bringing over a plane or car from my old world?"
Xander shook his head. "It is forbidden to bring any mechanical devices through the Portal."
My eyes narrowed at him. "What about that truck that drove me over?"
"That is an exception."
"Uh-huh. How about we make another teensy-weensy exception and I get a private jet?"
He blinked at me. "A ‘jet?’"
I rolled my eyes and settled into his arms with my own crossed over my chest. "Never mind. So where are we going again?"
