Sun's out, guns out: Rebel of the Sands review

Please be aware that this review contains some spoilers. Do not continue reading unless you are fine with being spoiled.

Despite the fact that I’ve had Rebel of the Sands on my TBR list since February 2016, I had absolutely no idea what it was about. And I have to say, I’m glad I went into this one completely blind.

The audiobook narrator was quite slow but once I sped her up I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Right from the start, I was surprised by how strong Amani was and how much I liked her.

At first I thought it was going to be a straight-up rebellion story, but I was taken by surprise when elements of mythology were woven in, giving it a whole new dynamic. All the characters were consistent and believable, and every plot twist I thought I saw coming was turned on its head in a satisfying way.

I can definitely see myself continuing with this series down the line, and it doesn’t hurt that the cover designs are absolutely bloody stunning.
