Synopsis

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 read this book on my favorite book tuber Sasha Alsberg’s recommendation and absolutely loved it.This story is so unique and appealing it’s a pact of  Romance, thriller, adventure, magic, mythology and is really entertaining.It has some  twist and turns although most of the time you’ll figure out where the story is going but that’s fine.It’s really fun reading it.
I loved Amani’s character very much she’s shown as a strong women from the starting of the story.She often dressed as boys and sneak out to compete with them in shooting competition as girls are not allowed there.She’s fearless,cool and has smart ass answers to every question.The only thing is she attract a lot of problems.You will cheer for Amani the whole way as she escapes the bonds of oppression and finds her own power.
The male character Jin is also great.He’s funny,sarcastic but very resourceful.He has a way out of problems and that’s why they are a perfect match.As it just has 320 pages i finished it really soon.Really a entertaining book and i’ll give 5/5 stars to it.
“Being born doesn’t make a single soul important. But you were important when I met you, that girl who dressed as a boy, who taught herself to shoot true, who dreamed and saved and wanted so badly. That girl was someone who had made herself matter. She was someone I liked.”
