5 Worlds Book 1: The Sand Warrior

We rated this book:


This book was about a girl named Ooma, and she is a sand dancer. Everyone thinks she is a bad sand dancer because she has little control over her inanimate sand creations. Ooma’s sister Jessa left when Ooma was little, so when all the sand dancers get captured by the evil Toki people, all the people think hope is lost. Ooma goes in search of her long-lost sister, thinking Jessa can light the beacon to set things right. When they reach a sacred moon, the wise plant creatures tell Ooma she is the one to set things right. So they journey back to Ooma’s homeland to light the beacon. That is when Ooma finds her sister Jessa working for the Toki! After she distracts Jessa, she lights the beacon and stops the Toki for now. The plot of this story is entertaining, and the author came up with some very interesting situations in this book. The characters were very unique in their own way. The language in this tale was very unusual because there were so many made up names I could not understand. The illustrations were very colorful and bright. This book was great, and I can’t wait until the next book comes out! I think ages eight and up could read this book. This was such a good book I simply cannot wait for the next book in the series! “Do not control the sand, let the sand control you.”
