The Empty Waste
"What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well."
For most, the Great Desert is seen as a place to be avoided at all cost. There is nothing of value to be found there, only death. For centuries the blistering desert has remained untouched by all but the Badawi. But the Badawi see the desert in a different light. They know the desert holds many ancient secrets, and one day, those secrets will save all Alyssia. The Badawi know they are the desert's caretakers today, Alyssia's savior tomorrow.
