Book Review for: Rebel of the Sands

Over the years I have noticed that the things which starts roughly for me ends quite finely. The same thing occurred when I read the book Rebel of the Sands.
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.
At the beginning of this book I found it quite unreal. But slowly I started liking the lively and interesting character of Amani Al'Hiza. I loved her confidence and intelligence. Even though the story was a little prolonged at first I liked it in the end. After reading the last chapter I asked the little part of my mind if I would like to read the sequel of this book, and it said yes. I would give this book a 3/5.
