The Blood of the HoopoeBook - 2016
War is breaking out in Kadingir. Still struggling to accept her role as a long prophesied icon of unification between Is-Land and Non-Land, Astra Ordott is on a journey across the wind sands to join her father and his people - the mystics of Shiimti, who claim to hold the secret to a truly harmonious human relationship with the damaged Earth. She's desperate to get there quickly, but when her guide and companion, the shepherd Muzi, leads her off course into the path of a vicious sandstorm, she is forced to confront what the gods of their devastated world might be telling her: that there will be no refuge from her destiny. Meanwhile in the IMBOD Barracks, the charismatic Chief Inspector Odinson and Dr. Blesserson have taken a personal interest in Astra's troubled Shelter brother Peat. But Enki Arakkia and his tenacious warriors have battle plans that will place Peat on a collision course with Astra and her quietly blossoming love for Muzi. Can the spirit healers of Shiimti help her reconcile her family ties with her new loyalties - or will the escalating events of war change, utterly, everyone and everything she cares about?
