Rebel of the sands (rebel of the sands 1)
by: Alwyn Hamilton
Expected publication: march 8th 2016 by Penguin
genre: YA Fantasy
She’s more gunpowder than girl—and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.
Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and barren wastes, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still practice their magic. But there’s nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can’t wait to escape from.
Destined to wind up “wed or dead,” Amani’s counting on her sharpshooting skills to get her out of Dustwalk. When she meets Jin, a mysterious and devastatingly handsome foreigner, in a shooting contest, she figures he’s the perfect escape route. But in all her years spent dreaming of leaving home, she never imagined she’d gallop away on a mythical horse, fleeing the murderous Sultan’s army, with a fugitive who’s wanted for treason. And she’d never have predicted she’d fall in love with him…or that he’d help her unlock the powerful truth of who she really is.
WHY I’M WAITING
- It sounds like a mix of western and fantasy and I have never read something like that, and find it quite intriguing.
- I recently read the wrath and the dawn and now find myself craving books that take place in a dessert like environment, which this seems to do.
- The cover. I mean it just draws me to the book and makes me think MINE. So Yeah The cover.
What are you guys curently waiting on ? i would love to know 🙂
