♪♫MY PICK FOR BOOK THEME SONG♫♪
Hero of the Day♫ by Metallica (S&M) --First off, it's my favorite Metallica song…and, well…it suggests a search for heroes…which is kind of what Ahmed, Jin and the rebels are doing. ♫
The Feels: 4.5/5
Backdrop (World Building): 4/5
Book Cover: 5/5
Ending: 4.5/5 Cliffhanger: no, just a "to be continued" vibe
Will I continue this series? Yes!
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.
