Rebel of the Sands was tremendous fun! With a Wild West feel and an Arabian Nights setting I was very excited to dig into this debut novel. Amani is a wonderfully strong and interesting character. Stuck in a dead end town she dreams of escape. She is a skilled sharp shooter and quick on her feet. Both serve her well when she meets a young man on the run from the army. Full of adventure, this story pulled me along. An amazing debut, I can't wait to see what's coming next from this author.
