Waiting on Wednesday #29: "Rebel of the Sands" by Alwyn Hamilton

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Rebel of the Sands (Rebel of the Sands, #1) 

Title: "Rebel of the Sands"
Author: Alwyn Hamilton
Publication Date: March 8, 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.

I've heard so many great things about this book and the idea of combining magic, fantasy, and Western together sounds interesting. Fortunately it's being released next week so I don't have to wait too long.


What are you waiting on?
