In this action-packed follow-up to Above World, ocean-dwelling Kampii Aluna and Hoku are in the desert — not an ideal situation, especially now that Aluna has secretly started growing her tail. But the maniacal Karl Strand is out to conquer the Above World, and the horselike Equians are next on his list. Aluna, Hoku, and their friends — winged Calli and Equian exile Dash — race to the desert city of Mirage, intent on warning the Equians. If they fail, the desert — and possibly all of the Above World — will be lost to Karl Strand forever.
"A powerful sequel with sustained themes of friendship and honor." — Kirkus Reviews
