Publisher's Summary

Forging a new quest, Maddie and Alex unite the desert runners in order to find enough food to feed the Tromoal through their birthing. But there’s descent into chaos at the mayor’s farm on the discovery of a stolen Tromoal egg and the fact he’s hoarding zombie cattle. Maddie's choices are limited, but her fight isn’t.

A tasty Dessert in the form of a desert storm

Maddie and friends return for the third installation of this sandblown serial. No spoilers, but we do kind of get to see what Alex's final fate is, and we get to see (as I sort of suspected) why Maddie isn't just any NPC.

This book has a very different feel than the first two books, and not in a bad way. There are real elements that made me think of the Dark Tower, but considering that Maddie's world is a Virtual one it amped up the coolness of it all. The end battle between Maddie and the big bad was too brief for my taste, I really wanted to see her give it to him just a bit more, but the end result was most satisfying. I really do not want to give away anything, but the story rocks and pops, has the proper dash of mystery (what is up with Alex?), and leaves the door open for the next chapter.

Some things to look out for are the Tromoal, Karma and character sheets, and the proper way to do some stacking. A lot of things are answered, some left for later, and more mysteries sprout up.Chapman does a great job completing one plotline, continuing another, and starting something new in just a few spaces. I think she is getting really comfortable with Maddie now, and has a sense of who she is (because Maddie told her), making writing her all the easier now.

Andrea Parsneau has cemented her place in my parthenon of narration. She really plays the characters like a fine violin, and helps make the setting all the more real.

I can't wait to see more of the Desert's Daughter, Maddie, in action.

The Story teller.

Man I was sure this is a trilogy, now I absolutely know it's not which is good and bad.
Good because it's an awesome story!
Bad because I want to know how it ends.
Yes this is one of those creation that grabs you from the beginning and that you can't wait to finish it, but when you do you get sad because you want more, in short which ever it goes it always suck :-).
I truly love this series as you can already tell.
Hoping that number four is on its way, beside a great story, all those twists and turns blow my mind away, which is a great part of why I love this series especially on this third book which totally twisted me around all the way to the last minute !
There is nothing else you can ask from an author, a good story which you can't predict or know where it's heading is magic which only a few authors have mastered accomplishing it !
As is with the first two books, performances is perfect on this one to.
There is absolutely no way that I can find not to recommend this book or the entire series.
I can't see anyone not liking it so I'm not worried recommending it, I truly can't see how anyone won't enjoy this series it's absolutely impossible!!!
