Hot off the Press

Desert of the Damned 2Supernatural loner and wanderer, Sage Smith, returns in Desert of the Damned, the second thrilling installment of K. F. Baugh's Sage of Sevens Series. When Sage awakens in a remote canyon of New Mexico after a flash flood, injured and alone, she can’t remember how she got there. Tween cousins Maddie and Orion Thompson rescue and bring her to the home of Noreen Hano, elder of the nearby Native American Pueblo, to recuperate. Sage's head injury continues to plague her and soon she finds herself losing consciousness more frequently, often waking up in the company of the mysterious Puebloan Water Feather. He hints that Sage has abilities far beyond anything she can imagine. He challenges her to grow her gifts, warning that another supernatural being threatens the very existence of the Pueblo where Noreen and her family live. Desert of the Damned is available on Amazon. See more member books in our library.
