Rebel of the Sands, #2
Viking Books for Young Readers
Expected: March 7th, 2017
Description from GoodReads:
Mere months ago, gunslinger Amani al'Hiza fled her dead-end hometown on the back of a mythical horse with the mysterious foreigner Jin, seeking only her own freedom. Now she's fighting to liberate the entire desert nation of Miraji from a bloodthirsty sultan who slew his own father to capture the throne.
When Amani finds herself thrust into the epicenter of the regime—the Sultan's palace—she's determined to bring the tyrant down. Desperate to uncover the Sultan's secrets by spying on his court, she tries to forget that Jin disappeared just as she was getting closest to him, and that she's a prisoner of the enemy. But the longer she remains, the more she questions whether the Sultan is really the villain she's been told he is, and who’s the real traitor to her sun-bleached, magic-filled homeland.
Why I Want It:
I read Rebel of the Sands in December 2016, and I completely adored it. I couldn't put it down, I stayed up into the late night just finishing the book. And so, I can not wait to see where Alwyn Hamilton takes us with the rest of the story, in Traitor to the Throne. Action, gun fights, djinni, and magic, what more could you want in a book?
That's my Waiting on Wednesday this week! Will you be picking up Traitor to the Throne? What are you waiting on this week?
