Rebel of The Sands #1 (♥♥♥♥♥) by Alwyn Hamilton
Dustwalk is an unforgiving,dead-end town. It’s not the place to be poor or orphanage or female. And yet Amani Al’Hiza must call it “home”. Amani wants to escape and see the world she’s heard about in campfire stories. Then a foreigner with no name turns up, and with him she has the chance to run. But the desert plains are full of dangerous magic. The Sultan’s army is on the rise and Amani is soon caught at the heart of a fearless rebellion.
My Review : (Spoiler alert)
I gave it five stars but doesn’t mean this is the best book I’ve read so far, but I really enjoy reading it. The moment I read this book, I already like Amani, about how she dream about she want to run away from Dustwalk to Izman , and that she will to anything for it. She even disguise as a boy in Pistol Pit to win the money prize for her plan. But then suddenly this Foreigner Jin guy show up, I’m already freaking excited how their romance are going to turn out. Desert girl and a foreigner is a really interesting love story. Then this book talks about magical things , Djinni , Buraqi (magical horse) , ghoul , skinwalker. I love this book more toward the end, where for her whole life she’s been living she just found out that she is not a foreigner (gallan) child, her real father is not a gallan soldier The Sultan hired. Instead, she found out that her real father is a Djinni ( a magical creature that possessed a magical power) so, she’s a Demdji (human+djinni) and Jin is not just a foreigner but he is a prince, and he is part of the Rebel Prince , a new dawn a new desert . And they have a Rebel camp , where Amani found out who he and she is. In that camp, there’s a lot of Demdji, Im fascinated by the girl who have gold skin. And some of them have the power to change themselves as someone else, as animals, read through someone mind, and mess with it. And turns out Amani can control sands, why suddeny can control? She’s been living in the desert for her whole life. why? Because she’s been holding gun , and gun is made of iron, and these magical creatures can get hurt by iron, or lose their power, so that day she didn’t hold and gun, and in the middle of a fight with The Sultan’s army she suddenly can control sands. So whole desert is her weapon, imagine that already makes me feel I hope they can make this series into movies. And Jin? I’m in love with him, who don’t? He’s a prince, he can fight, he’s sweet and jaw dropper . I really can’t wait for the next book of the Rebel of The Sands series. Can’t wait for their new dawn new desert.
