DescriptionThe Kingdom of Sand is mostly sandy desert, with frequent rocky outcroppings, as shown on the cover of The Brightest Night. Water is rare, so towns cluster around oases and rivers, including the Great Five-Tail River. Where it borders with the Ice Kingdom, sandy desert gives way to rocky tundra.
The Scorpion Den is in the far south, with an oasis in the center, where Dune stole Sunny's egg. Burn's Stronghold is in the middle of the Kingdom of Sand and used to be the SandWing palace, but Burn took it over when she was attempting to claim the SandWing throne. The stronghold is now controlled by Queen Thorn.
The Kingdom of Sand is full of brightsting cactus, the only known antidote to SandWing poison, and has almost all of it in the Scorpion Den.
The prey in the Kingdom of Sand consists of lizards, coyotes, camels, and scavengers.
The Scorpion Den is a famous city in the Kingdom of Sand. It is inhabited by lowlife SandWings and SandWing hybrids. The Scorpion Den is known to be full of assassins, thieves, con artists, and more, making it a dangerous place to live.
Glory found an animus-touched tunnel in the Rainforest Kingdom that leads to the Kingdom of Sand. She described the desert as "always hot and clear with no rainy days". The tunnel is hidden by sand right outside of Burn's Stronghold, and the wind blows sand to cover it up every single day, which is why Burn had not discovered the tunnel entrance. The NightWings had wanted the tunnel there so that when Blister became queen, she could help them seize the rainforest.
The Kingdom of Sand is the main setting of The Brightest Night, where Sunny meets Thorn and her Outclaws in the Scorpion Den, Smolder in Burn's Stronghold, and where the next SandWing queen is chosen (Burn's Stronghold).
- The Brightest Night's book cover depicts the Kingdom of Sand.
- If Blaze had won the war, the Kingdom would be smaller, as the IceWings would now own the northern part; as Blaze promised them that piece of land if they won the war.
- The Kingdom of Sand is one of the two kingdoms that don't put the element before the word "Kingdom".
