Rush doesn’t have a lot of options and does what he can, but his past haunts him and if he is going to preserve any kind of future for himself and his wife, Star, he is going to have to deal with the loss of his son and stand up for what is right, not what is easy.
When he’s offered a chance at a small fortune, decides that he has nothing to loss and goes for it. He realizes far too late that this opportunity is not at all, what he signed up for and is forced into a race against time to save his estranged wife.
Ward’s doorway into the world of Sand shows us some of the harsh realities of this desolate world and the hard, sometimes impossible decisions that are made every day by the people that struggle to get by.
Their destination lies across the wastelands and to get there they’ll have to fight their way through deadly brigands, vicious wild animals, and distrust of everyone around them. When Rush finds an unexplainable piece of old tech, with a man’s face on it and his voice talking to him, Rush begins to suspect that his old friend isn’t telling him everything.
Blue Dawn is an exciting continuation of Ward’s Scavenger series, based on Hugh Howey’s World of Sand.
The story is fun and it will be interesting to see where Ward plans to take the series. My only complaint is, I wish the characters were a little more fleshed out, especially Rush and Star. Hopefully, that will come later in the series, otherwise I found Blue Sands an entertaining read and recommend it to anyone who loved Hugh Howey’s novel.

Shawn King at STK Kreations is designing the covers for the Scavenger series and I think they do a fine job of portraying the bleakness of the story.
