"Durst imbues a thrill-filled story about monster racing with impressive thematic depth and a refreshing spectrum of female characters [...] Durst consistently defies expectations in both plot and characterization while exploring sophisticated themes of found family, integrity, and morality. This excellent epic fantasy will appeal to adult fans of Tamora Pierce and Megan Whalen Turner."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"National Velvet with monsters and a big helping of palace intrigue, Race the Sands is monstrous (literally), heartwarming, and empowering in equal measure. An incredibly fun and inspiring read." --Katherine Arden, New York Times bestselling author of The Bear and The Nightingale
"RACE THE SANDS is not only a blistering rush through a brilliantly credible and original fantasy landscape, it's the story of resolve, family, and personal destiny we all need. Highly recommended."--Julie E. Czerneda, author of THE GOSSAMER MAGE
"Sarah Beth Durst is one of the most prolific authors I know, yet each of her beautiful stories is infused with exciting action and fully rounded characters whose struggles are both relatable and fantastical. Race the Sands is a fast-paced adventure that will have you falling in love with its heroines and the monsters they ride."--Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of The Demon Cycle?
"Durst's latest delivers the same sweeping prose and lush worldbuilding as her "Renthia" series, with strong female protagonists and lively supporting characters. This compelling fantasy will please fans and engage new readers."
