A sharpshooter. A dreamer. A damn good liar.
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 mythical horse—or that it would take a foreign fugitive to show her the heart of the desert she thought she knew.

I had so much fun going along with them on their journey so far. I loved there time with just one another, as well as when they were wi...
3 stars to cut it short- I think the hype for this book was misleading. There were two 'major' plot twists in this book- the first one I had already figured out BEFORE the first half, and the second one I didn't really see coming, but still for some reason didn't seem very shocking or exhilaratin...
I read this for the Young Adult square for Romance Bingo.The world building was a bit confusing with all the magical components just thrown at me but towards the end I felt like I had a good grasp on what was what and who was who. The story of a girl who doesn't know she is special, meets a boy, and...
