Waiting on Wednesday (#66): Rebel of the Sands

 
Waiting on Wednesday  is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that booklovers can't wait to get their hands on!


Title: Rebel of the Sands
Author: Alwyn Hamilton
Series: Stand-alone
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Expected Publication Date: February 4th, 2016


She’s more gunpowder than girl—and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and barren wastes, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still practice their magic. But there's nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can't wait to escape from.

Destined to wind up "wed or dead," Amani’s counting on her sharpshooting skills to get her out of Dustwalk. When she meets Jin, a mysterious and devastatingly handsome foreigner, in a shooting contest, she figures he’s the perfect escape route. But in all her years spent dreaming of leaving home, she never imagined she'd gallop away on a mythical horse, fleeing the murderous Sultan's army, with a fugitive who's wanted for treason. And she'd never have predicted she'd fall in love with him...or that he'd help her unlock the powerful truth of who she really is.
 

Why am I waiting?

ONE OF MY MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASES OF 2016! You have absolutely no idea how freaking excited I am for this book - I'll definitely order this beauty as soon as it's out ... or probably already before that because I can't contain myself. I already read the first 2 chapters and I'm SO HOOKED. They were freaking amazing and I only wanted MORE, MORE, MOOOOORE! GAH! ♥
