In this second book of Tasakeru, Faun discovers an ancient secret hidden in the desert: a survivor of a lost race.
The second book of Tasakeru, by Brian Stanley.
What secrets lie within the sands of Kamen Desert? Faun Reinaka doesn't care; the only thing that concerns her is the priceless relics inside the ancient edifice buried there... stealing just a few of them will make her rich. But what she finds is far stranger: a survivor of an ancient, extinct race that once ruled Sankami. The survivor strikes a deal with the vixen: in exchange for a source of great magic, he promises wealth beyond her wildest dreams. However, to do so, she must betray the trust of her fellow Outcasts... will her greed or her friendship win out in the end?
