Their psychic power brought them to Dustland together. But will that same power tear them apart?
Using their psychic abilities, Justice, the Watcher, Dorian, the healer, Thomas, the magician, and Levi, the sufferer, have formed their unit. Together, they mind-travel to a strange future world called Dustland. Together, they can survive anything. But when tensions run high between Thomas and Justice, will Thomas leave them stranded in this desolate land? With the future of their unit uncertain, the children are threatened by an even greater danger: Mal, the evil entity that controls Dustland. Will the unit be restored in time to fight against this new threat?  Dustland is the second book of Virginia Hamilton’s dystopian fantasy series, the Justice Trilogy, comprised of Justice and Her Brothers, Dustland, and The Gathering. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Virginia Hamilton including rare photos from the author’s estate.

Besides the devoted "dog," Miacus, Justice communicates (less well) with one of a group of winged, three-legged humans (we must take Justice's word for it that they are human) whose Quest is for a way out of Dustland.
