by Alwyn Hamilton
Grades 6 & up

Amani is willing to try just about anything to get out of her dying desert town before she is forced to marry her uncle. She has been living with extended family ever since her mother killed her father, and would rather face the Jinn and other magical creatures that still roam the desert at night than to spend one day longer there. When a mysterious stranger comes to town pursued by the Sultan’s army, Amani jumps at the chance to escape with him. But where she ends up going and what she learns about herself and the rest of the world is much more than she ever imagined. Recommended for grades 6 & up.

Grades 5 & up

It is rare that sequel is even better than the first, but this book was AMAZING! I can’t even write up a review because I don’t want to give any spoilers. If you liked Rebel of the Sands, you must read this book. It continues Amani’s story and will keep readers on the edge of their seats. I know that I stayed up way too late reading it!

Highly recommended for grades 5 & up, for anyone who likes books with a magical, mythological bent.
