The Kingdom of Sand found Nima wandering in the desert as a young girl.
Now seventeen, Nima is the storyteller for her adoptive kingdom, weaving tales for their entertainment while yearning to learn the truth of her past.
When the king from the nearby Kingdom of Stars demands that Nima be brought to him, she has no choice but to go with the warriors. The palace is dark and stifling, and the king's rule is tyrannous. Nima immediately begins plotting her escape, even though it means traveling back through a desert full of windhaunts—memory-stealing spirits that roam the dunes.
As Nima grows closer to one of the king's sons, though, danger from the windhaunts and palace secrets threaten her at every turn. She must use her stories to discover—and create—the truths of her past and the shared history of the kingdoms in order to preserve her freedom, save her people from the windhaunts, and reunite the Kingdoms of Sand and Stars.
Tales of Sand and Stars is a luminous, lyrical fantasy full of the beauties and dangers of the desert and the creatures that roam the dunes.

Juliet grew up in northern California, where she spent her free time staring at spooky lakes and making up stories about the old buildings surrounding them. Years later, she still lives in California and she still makes up spooky stories…about lakes and the old buildings surrounding them. Like April in April’s Ghosts, she’s terrified of spiders and she’s obsessed with Hamilton. Like Lissa in June's Blood, she plays the piano...but not very well.

Up until a few weeks ago, eighteen-year-old Lissa Anderson drank, smoked, and partied hard.
Now, though, she’s determined to be the straightest arrow at Rosebud, an elite summer program for classical musicians.
But the unrestful spirits in the old school have other ideas.
A spooky old dormitory, overprivileged students, and hours at the piano make the program into everything Lissa expected.
What she didn’t expect is her quickly-budding romance with a cellist, a series of thefts related to scary stories, or the ghost determined to get Lissa’s attention.
Dead men tell no tales, but dead girls do.
This boxed set includes all three books in the Rosebud Academy trilogy: June's Blood, July's Flesh, and August's Bones.
