“It’s been a while since I read a book that I just didn’t want to put down.” – Deb
Fourteen-year old Lissa is snatched from her home and finds herself a slave on a trading ship traveling on a waterless ocean of nothing but gray dust. A feisty, curious and intelligent girl, her desire to explore the ship earns her the hatred of the cruel first officer, Farq.
Fascinated by the ocean of dust, Lissa becomes embroiled in its mysteries, sensing things that the crew cannot, while cryptic whispers in her head are leading her toward a destiny linked to the dust itself. Only one man aboard can help her make sense of her new talent, but can she trust him? All is not as it seems, and she must unravel the clues before it’s too late.
When a sinister plot casts her adrift on the barren ocean, her best friend is left in the hands of the treacherous crew. Everything hinges upon her courage, quick wits, and her ability to master her new talent.
This reader would recommend it!
Ocean of Dust kept me wondering what would happen to Lissa next, and I was always surprised, page after page. The places she went, and the challenges she faced, were beautifully described and unique. The secondary characters were complex, and I, like Lyssa, was never quite sure who to trust. It’s been a while since I read a book that I just didn’t want to put down. This book is a great read for all ages and I sure hope there will be sequels. – Deb
