Publisher's Summary

A sizzling sequel to Rebel of the Sands that will make you question everything you thought you knew about the land of Miraji!
The gunslinger Amani al'Hiza never wanted to be a hero or a revolutionary, but now she's become a key member of the rapidly growing rebellion against the Sultan of Miraji. After Amani is captured by the Sultan's army and imprisoned in his palace, she realizes she's there not to be questioned as a rebel but used as a Demdji. As Amani tries to spy on the enemy and plots her escape, Jin and the rebels are brewing a rescue plan. But the longer Amani stays in the palace, the more she questions if the Sultan is the tyrant she's believed or just a ruler fighting foreigners for his country. As the rebellion swiftly spirals into war, Amani wonders whether she's on the right side.

Different From Book One But Still Interesting

Book two clearly set things up for a lot to happen in book three, but sometimes it pulled me in so many directions, with so few solutions, that it began to feel a bit overwhelming. The strange thing is that less happens in this book than I expected, especially considering it has 518 pages.

Actually, things happens, but there is less overall forward motion that I expected when starting this book. Compared to book one, this has a much slower pace and fewer action scenes. That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the story, but it didn’t captivate me the way book one did.

I do love Amani. She’s a unique character, with a fascinating voice. I would probably read about her going to Walmart, paying bills, and walking the dog, so this worked out for me. I had a bit of trouble juggling all the side characters and keeping them all straight in the first half of the book, but that could also be partly might fault.

I should have reread book one before continuing on. Since I read it very close to its release date, a lot of time passed before I got my hands on book two. If you’re debating what to do, I highly recommend that you reread book one. You can get by without doing so, but I struggled throughout the story to remember what happened in the first book. Plus the first book is really good, so it’s not going to be painful for people to reread it. I wish I had done that.

The performance is fantastic. A+ to the narrator.
