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.


When I picked up REBEL OF THE SANDS I wasn’t sure what to expect from this novel, the title and the summary was what drew me into a story. Now that I have read it, I am gratefull that it did. It was unlike any other stories that I have read, at least not lately. I was hooked into story from the first page to the last and afterwards was craving for more. I knew that it is a fictional story, but to me it felt real, every single page. Most of the novel, I felt like I was there besides Amani and Jin, every single step of the way. Through reading it, I felt every single emotion that Amani did and I pictured everything that was happing and to me, the story became real. I was eager to see what would happen with them next, if they will be able to escape.

I love Amani from start of the book, she has courage, to do what she did. She could sold out Jin easily but she didn’t. She has courage too, and determination. Amani is one of those characters that you can’t help but love. I love realthionship between her and Jin and even if they kept going back and forth, you could see that there was an attraction between the two of them, from the moment that the two of them kissed on the train. Even when Amani was trying to avoid him, I had a feeling that it was harder for her to get him out of her mind. She wouldn’t rescued him if she didn’t care about him. Of course now I am eager to find out what’s in store for them next.

REBEL OF THE SANDS is one story that I wished I read sooner, and I have a feeling that it will be a series that I am going fall in love with. I am already in love with the characters and the story. There were few times that I found myself reading late into night, because I needed to see what would happen. I am eager to see what adventures and what obstacles they have to face next.

Magical. Breathtaking.
