Embrace the Fire Within

FIRE WALKER ~ BOOK 2 OF THE SAND DANCER SERIES

In FIRE WALKER, the story of Mina Hawker continues with more sword dancing, fiery magic, and dark secrets as we explore the western lands of Sandair and delve into what it means to be a Fire Walker.

When her kingdom starts rounding up anyone with fire magic to fight and die on the front lines of a pointless war, a brash young warrior must decide how much is too much for her people to give up in order to stop the violence.

FIRE WALKER is OUT NOW by Uproar Books

RIOTS IN THE STREETS. ASSASSINS IN THE PALACE.

ARMIES ON THE MARCH.

THE FIRE WALKERS ARE PAYING FOR THEIR FREEDOM

WITH THEIR BLOOD.

For centuries, Fire Walkers have been locked away in temples for the sin of being born with fire magic in their veins. At last, they are free.

But when a king is assassinated by fire magic, the people demand war. And the ruthless Prince Ravel sees his opportunity to seize the throne and rid his kingdom of Fire Walkers forever.

Mina Arlbond, the famed Sand Dancer who disguised herself as a man to win freedom for the Fire Walkers, is ordered to personally lead her people to the slaughter on the front lines of war. Instead, she races across the kingdom to unmask a conspiracy that threatens to tear apart three great nations—and blame Fire Walkers for the chaos.

When she discovers a chance to prevent the war and end the oppression of Fire Walkers forever, Mina must decide how much of her soul—and the soul of her people—is too much to sacrifice to stop the violence.
