The deathly Sanghouls have escaped from the Empty Province and, from within their golden dunes, they seek to wipe out all life in Empyria. Unaware of this, the last surviving humans continue going about their daily routine in the city of Nimar. But when the city’s water pool stops refilling, the Nimerians are forced to move into lands of myth and legend.

Only when Prince Viro, an elf of the southern lands, arrives in Nimar do the humans truly understand the threat to their existence. The two races must unite and reclaim the lost seven stones of light – the only weapon that can defeat the demonic shadow enclosing them.

As four of the city’s most talented young men and women, Athmane, Faria, Bayoud and Mary will be critical to Nimar enduring the perils, both natural and unnatural, that await them.

I can offer PDF only sorry, but I'd be very grateful for any reviews that can be posted on Goodreads or Amazon. Thank you guys!

This is a story like no other. I find myself saying this a lot lately. It could be due to the fact that fantasy stories are not my normal read. In my defense, I can only say, I was captivated. I could not stop reading about a breed of people that I knew was not real, that the entire was so far from reality, it was not funny. But the author did such a terrific job describing the environment, its inhabitants and all the perils the inhabitants went through, I just could not put the book down, even though I was exhausted from all the fighting, walking, and searching for water. Great read!

It's like Dune went viral. I'm kidding. It's good. It's original. I liked it. The world was carefully constructed without too much explanation pulling away from the story.

The story centers around a few thousand survivors who need to find a new source of water. The pool they depend on is running dry. they need to relocate to another area around Dunein. Shadows in the Sand is their struggle to survive.
