Something is hunting the inhabitants of Ravar
For three generations, the colonists on Ravar have been stranded on a harsh planet, forced to survive in a desert environment where only the scrappiest animals and the heartiest plants survive. Most live without the foolish hope that Earth's supply ships will ever grace the skies again.
Trapped in a sandstorm, Neena Xylance struggles to make her way back to her colony. What she doesn't know is that she isn't alone, and what she finds might destroy the last of the fragile life on her planet.

The book does not resolve any of its conflicts or answer any of its questions. Very disappointing read.25
Interesting storyline and characters35
The writer doesn't leave any room for the reader to ponder the material in front of them, they give annoying explanations for nearly every situation. My favorite thing to do in books is come up with my own explanations and see if I'm right. This is no fun.25
Really enjoyed the story line of this book, and I think the writer is talented, but I can see the effort out into not ending sentences with a preposition. That means that character’s speak in ways that do not make sense for the setting and their likely level of education on the planet Ravar. For instance, a six year old is going to speak differently than an adult, and it should be written as such. Teenagers will speak differently than adults, people from one colony will also speak differently, etc. Otherwise, love the survival aspects in the desert, I’m also intrigued by the caves and the creature(s).45
Undeniably one of the best series I have read. After finishing the first book so quickly, I couldn’t resist buying the last 3. There may be some awkward sentences that may confuse the reader without a second glance, but regardless the Story was immersive and worth reading.55
