Overview

The entire world laid to waste. There are no second chances.

The ancient machine that produced icefire was destroyed twenty years ago, but the deadly magic is again on the increase. No one understands why or where it’s coming from.

Massive changes in weather patterns plunge the northern half of the inhabited world in deep drought. People are once again fleeing, but nowhere is safe.

King Isandor sends people to investigate a concentration of icefire in the mountains at the border, but two consecutive patrols both vanish. It appears that, after having suffered badly in wars, the neighbouring country Arania is on the offensive, and is using icefire as weapon. Their culture is harsh and their barbarism knows no boundaries.

Meanwhile two young meteorology students make a string of discoveries that will change the way the people understand the world. They’re on the threshold of the age of enlightenment, but vital knowledge necessary to save their world may well get lost when war overruns the inhabited world.

Sand and Storm (Moonfire Trilogy Book 1) by Patty Jansen is another wonderful book by the master of fantasy. She brings us into a world where the ancient machine of icefire had been destroyed but it seems to be coming back but no one knows from where. Since icefire controls the weather, part of the world is in drought. The world is then divided and at war with each other. The story follows two meteorologists who are making discoveries that might save the world. Also the story follows a few others that are important to the story and the reader will gets drawn into their life. One is a female mechanic who is forced to be a spy. Lots of action/adventure and surprises with this story. The stories all mesh into a flow and blend of a delicious fantasy that is pleasing and enjoyable. Just the right about of action, suspense, and fantasy mixed in. I received this book for a honest review and it in no way effected my review or rating.
