Synopsis

Sold immediately at auction across the world, this phenomenal novel is the first in a trilogy packed with shooting contests, train robberies, festivals under the stars, powerful Djinni magic and an electrifying love story. This promises to be a global super lead. "Tell me that and we'll go. Right now. Save ourselves and leave this place to burn. Tell me that's how you want your story to go and we'll write it straight across the sand." Dustwalk is Amani's home. The desert sand is in her bones. But she wants to escape. More than a want. A need. Then a foreigner with no name turns up to save her life, and with him the chance to run. But to where? The desert plains are full of danger. Sand and blood are swirling, and the Sultan's enemies are on the rise.

Customer Reviews

More gunpowder than girl was a draft name for Rebel of the Sands, and makes an excellent tagline. Amani is a girl of the desert, whip-smart and sharp shooting, and desperate to get out of Deadshot. When she meets a mysterious stranger at a shooting competition, their lives are forever bound together in escape and adventure, amidst the desert - land of the Djinnis. Absolutely brilliant fun, excellent banter with fast paced action - Wild West Arabian nights! I am eagerly awaiting the next book!!

This debut novel from Alwyn Hamilton more than lives up to the hype! Rich, diverse, detailed, fast-paced, exhilarating, and magical. The world-building is sublime, the characterisation is refreshing, and the plot is page turning. Do not hesitate to buy and read.
