An engaging old-fashioned adventure story, Zafir and the Seventh Scroll will take you to lands far away in time and place, as Bassam is called on to grow from a boy into a young man. The story begun in The Seven Secret Scrolls continues as Bassam rejoins his caravan, only to find his mentor, Zafir, gravely injured and facing death. Will Bassam be able to get him the help he needs - and will he ever learn what is in the seventh secret scroll, to complete his education and become the upstanding young leader Zafir sees in him?
Join Bassam on his journey to C'ina and beyond and see the world through his eyes. Get a glimpse of how people lived and worked in the long-ago world, what tools they used and what foods they ate. Look at the Great Wall of China as it is built, visit marketplaces and eateries, and sail the seas of the Far East. Learn about leadership with Bassam, as Zafir shows him that some people make the world better and richer, while others use great power to make it worse, and teaches him how to steer his own ship strong and true.

It was nice but i feel he's drawing out the story
The story is good, and this was a good continuation to the first book, but i feel the author is just draaawing out the story. He writes well and all, but it's like he just figured out he struck gold and won't let it go. The abrupt ending on a new development and the "oh wait there's one more book coming"... This was just half a book, and i feel the story could have been nicely ended if the book was closer in length to the first. The main line of the plot, the scrolls and their meaning, is done. There is no logical need to put another book in this story. Just start another story in the same universe... This just reminds me of certain Wheel of time books: why close the story neatly in this book when you can drag it on to sell 3 more mediocre books?! It really seems like a last moment spin off to get more sales. The author seems talented, i'm sure he has more than just one story in him, so how about ending neatly and starting on something else. If he goes on like this we'll have another endless cycle of mediocre books written in the spirit of "oh and now we have to see what x did in the mean time, while generating another few loose ends to which i can come back in other books so i get more sales".
