⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

I have to admit that at times I didn’t understand what was going on…but I got the gist of it well enough, and ultimately I thoroughly enjoyed this desert tale with a western flair. 

 

 

 While some said this is paced to slowly; I found it totally engaging, despite the confusion I felt at times. The relationship between Jin and Amani has all the feels, and it's what I connected to most in this.  I wanted more interaction between them, and hope that the next book develops this more. 

 ⇝Sex Factor⇜ Not a factor.
