About Sand Dancer
A Young Adult fantasy novel, Sand Dancer is a breathless tale of magic, intrigue, and murder in a desert kingdom where the summoning of fire is a sin punishable by death. When a 16-year-old peasant named Mina discovers fire magic runs in her family’s blood, she must disguise herself as a young nobleman if she hopes to discover the truth and avenge her father’s murder.
“It’s a wild ride, an almost frantically paced adventure, with a fierce and unforgettable female hero trying to stay alive in a darkly magical desert kingdom,” said Rick Lewis, founder of Uproar Books.
“At the heart of Sand Dancer is a young woman who is frustrated her life seems entirely out of her control,” said Miss Skies. “She struggles constantly, often in self-destructive ways, to escape the demands and expectations of her rigid, male-dominated world. I think that’s a very real and common experience for young women of any era or culture, whether it’s a fantasy kingdom of swords and sorcery or the real world of today.”
