It seems like this book has exploded everywhere in the booktube and blogging community and I’m so glad I get to review it because it was a fast-paced desert adventure! At first I was hesitant about the setting, because I read A Thousand Nights by E. K. Johnston and really didn’t enjoy it, but everyone raved about The Wrath and the Dawn, which I’m yet to read and after reading this will have to read straight away!
There’s just something about the mysteries of the desert that make it the perfect backdrop for a magical fantasy. Alwyn Hamilton has such a beautiful way with words that Ipulled me in from the very beginning. I swear, if I didn’t have university commitments I would have read this in one sitting.
