Ocean of Dust - a YA Fantasy novel by Graeme Ing


Lissa, the young heroine of my book, has been begging to escape my mind for decades, so I had no choice but to write about her for my debut book. I sincerely hope that you, dear reader, will have as much fun with her adventures as I did writing them. Reviewers have referred to Ocean of Dust as a page-turner, for which I am thrilled. Please enjoy, and don't hesitate to start up a conversation on my web site, Facebook or Twitter. I don't bite - I'm a friendly bibliophile :)

Fourteen-year old Lissa is snatched from her home and finds herself a slave on a trading ship traveling on a waterless ocean of nothing but gray dust. A feisty, curious and intelligent girl, her desire to explore the ship earns her the hatred of the cruel first officer, Farq.
Fascinated by the ocean of dust, Lissa becomes embroiled in its mysteries, sensing things that the crew cannot, while cryptic whispers in her head are leading her toward a destiny linked to the dust itself. Only one man aboard can help her make sense of her new talent, but can she trust him? All is not as it seems, and she must unravel the clues before it's too late.
When a sinister plot casts her adrift on the barren ocean, her best friend is left in the hands of the treacherous crew. Everything hinges upon her courage, quick wits, and her ability to master her new talent.
