Sand & Storm is the first book in the Moonfire Trilogy.
The entire world laid to waste. There are no second chances.
The ancient machine that produced icefire was destroyed twenty years ago, but the deadly magic is again on the increase. No one understands why or where it's coming from.
Massive changes in weather patterns plunge the northern half of the inhabited world in deep drought. People are once again fleeing, but nowhere is safe.
King Isandor sends people to investigate a concentration of icefire in the mountains at the border, but two consecutive patrols both vanish. It appears that, after having suffered badly in wars, the neighbouring country Arania is on the offensive, and is using icefire as weapon. Their culture is harsh and their barbarism knows no boundaries.
Meanwhile two young meteorology students make a string of discoveries that will change the way the people understand the world. They're on the threshold of the age of enlightenment, but vital knowledge necessary to save their world may well get lost when war overruns the inhabited world.
In this epic fantasy series, set in an alternate world, the people have to find out important facts about their world in order to discover how to save themselves from the devastating effects of the return of icefire on the world.
This leads to a Galileo-like adventure, but where the knowledge has direct ramifications.
Is the world round or flat? What is the legendary “Mother” that Aranian fishermen speak about? What cases icefire and why hasn’t it disappeared when the machine that produced it was destroyed? Why has it devastated the world’s weather patterns?
Three young people in very different situations in different parts of the world need to come together to solve this issue.
Javes is trapped in the northern desert after the death of his tutor. Lana is a young woman in Chevakia, much less street-wise than she thinks she is. She will soon find herself in a very difficult situation.
Tamerane has grown up in a very restrictive household in the City of Glass. She is smart, but her father doesn’t want her to study. He wants to marry her off for money.
Impending war is about to thwart all their efforts.
