A thrilling sequel from an exciting new voice in middle-grade sci-fi tracks two ocean-born children braving the dangers of the Above World.

The desert is no place for ocean-dwelling Kampii like Aluna and Hoku, 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. When they arrive, Strand's clone, Scorch, has gotten there first. Now the Equian leader has vowed to take all his people to war as part of Strand's army. Any herd that refuses to join him by the time of the desert-wide competition known as the Thunder Trials will be destroyed. To have any chance of defeating Scorch and convincing the Equians to switch sides, the four friends must find a way to win the Trials. The challenge seems impossible. But if they fail, the desert -- and possibly all of the Above World -- will be lost to Karl Strand forever. Here is the action-packed follow-up to Above World, which Kirkus Reviews called "a thrilling sci-fi adventure. Imaginative and riveting."

Dash is okay, I just don't like the fact that he kissed so much people. sigh. I feel that above world is better than this book, it contain more adventures and twists, but I still look forward to horizon.

I resent that this book is better than above world and Dash is the best character in this series. you are insane.

Above World was much better. I don't think this book really relates to the first book at all…not really, anyway. It was still a good read, and I love the characters (with the exception of Dash).
