Rain Maker - A Tale of the Dry Desert: A Novel
The desert is dying. A girl finds an egg in the sands as she comes of age, the sun seering wisdom into her skin. The Great Saguaros that guard the Mother Desert are strickened with a blight and no rain has fallen in the desert in thirteen years. Without the rains, the desert will die, and without the Great Saguaros, an entire culture will go with it.
Eulia never wanted to save anyone. She longed to see the world and protect her Mother from the threat of outside invasion. Charged with the seemingly impossible task of finding the cause of the blight, Lia sets off from the desert world she knows so well and ventures into the lush green world of men, only to discover a plot sinister enough to spell doom for the desert and the world.
