About the Author
Alwyn Hamilton was born in Toronto and spent her childhood bouncing between Europe and Canada until her parents settled in France. She grew up in a small town there, which might have compelled her to burst randomly into the opening song from Beauty and the Beast were it not for her total tone-deafness. She instead attempted to read and write her way to new places and developed a weakness for fantasy and cross-dressing heroines. She left France for Cambridge University to study History of Art at King’s College, and then to London where she became indentured to an auction house. She has a bad habit of acquiring more hardcovers than is smart for someone who moves house quite so often. Follow her at @AlwynFJH.See all Product description

The world was amazing and I loved all the different stories about the Djinn and the first mortals. Im happy we got to see some more magic. I liked how iron was used to capture magical creatures and prevent them from using their powers. I also really enjoyed the desert setting and culture. Theres also plenty of diversity in this series with many people of color. I loved how the romance with the shapeshifter was portrayed. It didnt matter what gender they changed into their partner loved them no matter what.
I really enjoyed meeting the characters we heard about in the first book and reuniting with some old characters. I thought all the characters were compelling and well developped, even the antagonist. I really enjoyed the time spent getting to know the Sultan. I love well developped antagonists but its usally rare. The main character was entertaining. I liked how she questionned her beliefs of whats right and wrong. It made her more relatable. The generals daugther was fascinating and I loved her friendship with Amani.
I would have liked to see more of Noorsham but Im pretty sure we'll see him in the next book. I found it really refreshing that this book didnt focused too much on the romance. I was a little confuse when Jin mentionned Amanis aunt because I dont remember her telling anyone about her aunt in this book but I might be wrong. Im willing to bet this is going to make it onto my favorites of 2017. This was just as good if not better than the first book. I seriously cant wait for the third book after that crazy ending.
* I was lucky enough to receive a copy in exchange for an honest review. Thank you publishers*
Amani is kidnapped and taken to the Sultan’s palace where she stripped of her powers and must use her wit and instincts in order to survive and find a way to escape.
The Sultan’s palace is as intriguing as it is treacherous – Amani is among strangers and enemies where it would mean certain death if her identity as the Blue-Eyed Bandit is discovered. The Sultan does not seem to be the monster that she’s been told about. He is sharp, intelligent, resourceful and ruthless, and has her doubting if Ahmed is the best choice to rule. Is it a façade or is he truly acting in the kingdom’s best interest?
This book is Amani’s story. We don’t see much of Jin and are left in the dark (like Amani) for large chunk of the book, wondering what has happened to her rebel friends. She grows as a person and realises that there is so much more at stake than her survival. New interesting characters are introduced and old friends revisit, making it a captivating, suspenseful read with a shock betrayal and plenty of twists. The ending was heart-stopping and emotional, and I don’t know how I’m going to last until the next book.
Even over 500 pages long, I was never bored or felt that it dragged. I was so caught up in the story and Amani’s predicament that the pages flew by. I didn’t want it to end! This is a mesmerising, gripping journey, with deep, real characters and a brilliant plot that will leave you breathless. I loved ‘Rebel of the Sands’ but I think that ‘Traitor to the Throne’ takes Amani’s story to an entirely new level.
