I’ve always been a fan of Erin Bowman. She writes amazing science fiction and some of the only historical fiction (westerns) I actually enjoy reading. Dustborn combines all of the world building and action from her previous books into one story. Delta, lives in a world where everything is sun scorched and desert. Rivers and lakes just have small amounts of muddy water to survive on. Dust storms can rise up at anytime and if you get caught in one, you’re most likely going to end up dead. When Delta has take her dying sister to the nearest healer everything in her life takes a sudden turn. After her visit she finds herself without a sister and a newborn baby instead. When she finally makes it back to her village she finds everyone murdered or gone. Determined to find her family Delta sets off only to be captured and hauled off to the General’s fortress. Little does Delta know that the map tattoo she has on her back holds more secrets than she could ever imagine. In order to survive and save her family Delta must discover the secrets hidden in her tattoo before the General and his men.
