Rebel Of The Sands

Rebel Of The Sands

Assalamualaikum 
Welcome to another review with another book.  

Author: Alwyn Hamilton

Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers 
Publication date: March 8th, 2016
Genre(s): Young adult fiction
Pages: 314 

 Summary :

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mythical beasts still roam the wild and remote areas, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinn still perform their magic.  For humans, it’s an unforgiving place, especially if you’re poor, orphaned, or female.
Amani Al’Hiza is all three.  She’s a gifted gunslinger with perfect aim, but she can’t shoot her way out of Dustwalk, the back-country town where she’s destined to wind up wed or dead.
Then she meets Jin, a rakish foreigner, in a shooting contest, and sees him as the perfect escape route. But though she’s spent years dreaming of leaving Dustwalk, she never imagined she’d gallop away on the mythical horse—or that it would take a foreign fugitive to show her the heart of the desert she thought she knew.
Rebel of the Sands reveals what happens when a dream deferred explodes—in the fires of rebellion, of romantic passion, and the all-consuming inferno of a girl finally, at long last, 
embracing her power.
About the author :
Alwyn Hamilton was born in Toronto and spent her childhood bouncing between Europe and Canada until her parents settled in France. She grew up in a small town there, which might have compelled her to burst randomly into the opening song from Beauty and the Beast were it not for her total tone-deafness. She instead attempted to read and write her way to new places and developed a weakness for fantasy and cross-dressing heroines. She left France for Cambridge University to study History of Art at King’s College, and then to London where she became indentured to an auction house. She has a bad habit of acquiring more hardcovers than is smart for someone who moves house quite so often.
Alwyn’s New York Times-bestselling debut, the YA fantasy REBEL OF THE SANDS, was published by Viking Children’s Books in the U.S. and Faber Children’s Books in the U.K., and in Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Israel, Turkey, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Iran. Its sequel, TRAITOR TO THE THRONE, was published in spring 2017. Alwyn was named the 2016 Goodreads Choice Award winner for Best Debut Author.
My review :
this book tells us about a girl named Amani Al – Hiza lives in a town called Dustwalk and she lives with her evil aunt and an uncle who wants to marry her and she is trying to get out of from this town and go to Izman and one day, she goes to a shooting contest but she doesn’t know this contest leads her to her adventure with a foreigner guy named Jin. 
-I think I’m the only person who didn’t like the book, I mean Alwyn is a good author. I like her style of writing but the problem is that I don’t like the story itself.

I got sick of repeating that women are strong and independent! I didn’t like the fact that she’s not Arabian and she wrote an Arabic story, used Arabic names, living in the desert and men can possibly marry multiple women! what a stupid stereotype! And I also hate how Amani escapes and change her appearance to look like a boy and I can’t understand how she just became a good sharpshooter even though that she’s only sixteen. But the good thing that I didn’t find the rest of the series in the bookstore because I can’t stand the first one, it’s just a bunch of clichés.

My rating on Goodreads :

Quote :

You know, I never believed in fate until I met you”
