Default Help me find something

I just remembered, vaguely, a story of sorts. But I can't for the love of good find it again. Details:

* The setting was a deadly desert. People lived in some high rocks, which had elevators to get from the ground to above.
* The protagonist traveled with a mailman (or two), who rode what I'm pretty sure was a giant turtle. He went from town to town with the turtle, who wasn't affected by the deadly desert. A love/family letter was involved on some town, and I think there was an important package, too. The protagonist might have been interested on one of the letters carried by the mailman, but he wouldn't let him have it until they arrived to the destination.
* The turtle had a building of sorts on top of it, with a huge mail-classification machine inside. The cabin with the reins was in the head, and there was a rope bridge between the main structure and the cabin. There was a lever on the cabin.
* I think the turtle might get hurt or ill at a point during the journey, leaving the characters stranded. I also think there were other means of transport, like flying boats (normal boats, that floated in the air).

I don't remember if this was a book, a comic, or a game. It's just some weird memory, and I can't find anything with the information above. It could be a super obscure book no one has ever heard about, or maybe some widely know story I'm just failing to remember.

Doesn't sound familiar, and unfortunately googling "fantasy novel series giant turtle" only brings up Discworld, which I'm pretty sure is wrong.
