Jehn fears the day when his people will receive a moonstone from their goddess, Atoille, which will bestow a sand gift upon everyone. His rough upbringing on the street, pulling cons to survive, has taught him that people can’t be trusted.

When the dark god steals the moonstone and Jehn accidentally becomes the only recipient of its power, he must harness his unwanted gifts to recover the moonstone.

Jehn will have to master his new powers and dig up every skill he learned on the street if he’s going to cross the ocean of sand, infiltrate the dark god’s dwelling, and take back the moonstone.

This was a fun prequel adventure through the Oceans of Sand. It features the reluctant hero, Jehn, who doesn't want his people get receive the powers to manipulate the sand. The irony is he ends up being the only one with the gifts.

Honestly, after having read the Oceans of Sand, I wasn't sure if this character was going to cave to the dark side or not. His reasons for not wanting the sand gifts are sound. But it still gave me pause which is the brilliance of this story.

As with the first book in this series, I was left wondering how they were going to pull off the heist. You have three friends, Jehn, the relucent hero, Duma, the gemologist best friend, and Keziah, the only one trained to fight against a God and his shadowy forces. It's clear from the start each character brings a unique skill that is necessary to complete the quest. However, they're inexperience and tension between the group members makes you question if they will succeed the entire time.

Keziah was a fun character because she was the one with all the skill. She had to watch Jehn learn the powers that she was supposed to receive. It makes for an interesting enemies-to-lovers trope because before this, they were friends or at least friendly.
