Rebel of the Sands - Alwyn Hamilton

“For a second it looked like a mortal horse. The next it was pure sand. Shifting from bright gold to violent red, fire and sun in a windswept desert.”

Once I could keep most of the characters straight on who is who, I found myself enjoying this, and what amazing characters they are.  Amani is with-a-doubt one of my favorite YA heroines of all time.   She isn't whiny, she uses her head and she's kind of bad-ass too.  I did really miss Jin, we didn't get nearly enough of him.  I really wish we could get inside his head, just once, at least.  Also, the narration is excellently done by Soneela Nankani.  


Will I continue this series⇜  Yes, I will…I need to not wait so long, though, because I was lost for a bit on this one.  There's a lot of names to keep straight.  Even with the first chapter re-capping what happened in the book one. Hero at the Fall is due out in March of 2018.

I Can not tell a Lie, this book was really Rocking!!!!!!
Rebel of the Sands - Alwyn Hamilton

I so very much enjoyed this book a whole freaking much!!!!! I really thought Jin and Amani worked great together, and I thought they were so freaking cute together. 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 with some other characters. I was pretty sad when someone dies, even though us readers so expect that to happen, during a war. I also liked what we found out about Amani, which of course I am not going to spoil. 

I really want to know what happened to Amani's friend Tamid, since it wasn't ever revealed in this book, maybe my question will be answered in the second book, when I have a chance to work that into my reading schedule. So I will most definitely be reading book 2 as well as book 3.

Reading progress update: I've read 40%.
Rebel of the Sands - Alwyn Hamilton

Really great and enjoyable plus exciting book so far. I love both Jin and Amani so far a lot, there both very interesting characters ,and they so far seem to have a lot of strength. Amani so far seems much more serious than Jin, to me Jin tries to lighten things up. So far I know a lot more of Amani's past than I do of Jin's. 

I feel like I am going to enjoy these two together a lot, I am already enjoying their relationship. I can't wait to continue on in this book to see how there journey ends in this first book.
