Scavenger: A Sand Diver Tale by Timothy C. Ward
Book Review

This novelette felt right. It was in the world of Sand, a place I would never want to visit but came to love as I read Hugh Howey's novel Sand. Timothy does a great job of placing you right back in that world and introducing new characters to you. I liked his descriptive prose too. I noticed it right away at the beginning of the book and it set the mood and tone for the rest of the story. For the brief time you get to spend with them you learn a lot about them and he does a good job of fleshing them out. There are some very personal things you learn about the character and before a bunch of action similar to what you loved in Howey's Sand happens you'll know the motivations of the main character well. If you like Sand, and I don't know who wouldn't absolutely love that novel, then you'll like this story too. It's always fun to go back to a place you love from a book and revisit it and Timothy does a great job of bringing us back to that barren wasteland we've all come to love.
