An historical/urban fantasy suitable to older YA and adult readers – a story full of magic, intrigue and mystery, I give this under-hyped debut novel a 10/10 and I really can’t wait for the next instalment!!!
Publisher: Harper Voyager
Pros include excellent world building, a less common setting (middle eastern & Arabic legends based although other people use it as well such ass Sami Shah and Saad Hossein to name two), an outstanding main feisty female character, easy to read the writing, and most character motivations that I could accept.
Cons? The pacing is quite uneven, for example, there is a very l-o-o-o-n-g chase sequence but later the same amount of action/time is in too few words. The ending is very unsatisfying with no significant plot threads finalised and more added even on the last page! I appreciate it is book one but as a reader, I need some whole threads. There are some significant later scenes, events, and character actions that appear out of context and nothing before or after provides any background or framework for accepting or understanding.
So, overall, for me a good to very good book but not excellent.
