Meet Your Third Finalist

Wasp on the Wind

An epic saga unfolds as a future apocalyptic world begins to reveal its secrets … Chris was what the West Sand Command called “a greeny.” But after some three years of training and a return to the very group who had rescued her from the desert, her “Now Time” circle was complete — with one adjustment: She was now carried with her a mysterious pendant that she had been ordered to present to Lon, the Tagos of the Choe, an assignment that, as of yet, no West Sand Commander was aware.
