Waiting on Wednesday #89: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

Happy Wednesday, fellow book lovers! This week's "can't wait to read" is:

Rebel of the Sands
by 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'll admit, I'm not super sure what to expect for this one, but I definitely can't wait to read it! I haven't read many books with a Middle Eastern setting, but Rebel of the Sands sounds like it's going to be a really great adventure!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine.
