I am SO excited to be a part of the exciting bookish buzz today! In case you haven’t heard already, the title for the third book in the Rebel of the Sands series by Alwyn Hamilton is being announced today, and you came to the right place! First things first though, if you haven’t read the first two books in the series, Rebel of the Sands and Traitor to the Throne, then you are seriously missing out. You NEED to add these two books to your TBR now! Here’s what I had to say about Rebel in March of last year…
This book is jam-packed with non-stop excitement and the adventure is thrilling! “Rebel of the Sands” is perfect for those readers who enjoy epic quests and lots of action, mixed in with a healthy dose of meaningful character development and thoughtful protagonists.
Those words definitely right true for book two as well! As you can see, I loved this series from the very beginning and I think you will too. Need more convincing? Just take a look at the mood boards I created below. They’ll give you a good idea of what you can expect from these two epic books!
The sizzling, un-put-downable sequel to the bestselling Rebel of the Sands!
Mere months ago, gunslinger Amani al'Hiza fled her dead-end hometown on the back of a mythical horse with the mysterious foreigner Jin, seeking only her own freedom. Now she's fighting to liberate the entire desert nation of Miraji from a bloodthirsty sultan who slew his own father to capture the throne.
When Amani finds herself thrust into the epicenter of the regime—the Sultan's palace—she's determined to bring the tyrant down. Desperate to uncover the Sultan's secrets by spying on his court, she tries to forget that Jin disappeared just as she was getting closest to him, and that she's a prisoner of the enemy. But the longer she remains, the more she questions whether the Sultan is really the villain she's been told he is, and who’s the real traitor to her sun-bleached, magic-filled homeland.
Forget everything you thought you knew about Miraji, about the rebellion, about djinni and Jin and the Blue-Eyed Bandit. In Traitor to the Throne, the only certainty is that everything will change.
Happy Tuesday, friends! Do you know what today is? If you’re anything like me you’ve had this date marked on your calendar for a while now! Not only is it new release Tuesday, but it’s the book birthday for “Traitor to the Throne” by Alwyn Hamilton. You may already know how much I loved the first book in this series, “Rebel of the Sands” (read my review here) and hopefully you saw my recent post on the reasons why I love main character, Amani. But, today, I’m here to tell you all the reasons why I LOVE Traitor even MORE than I love Rebel.
