REBEL OF THE SANDS, by Alwyn Hamilton

rebel

The story: Amani just wants to get out of her dead-end town. Little does she know that making her escape just ahead of the Sultan’s troops will throw her into the path of djinns, death, and disturbance –and a young man name Jin, who is certainly not who he claims to be, and is far more than she ever dreamed. But guess what? So is she…FAR more than she ever dreamed.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: a “magical” read (excuse the pun…or don’t). Check out this fast-paced mashup of a wild west showdown and a tale from the Arabian nights!
