Here’s the review:
Driven by a desire to avenge the murder of his family, Cafad Scratha has become one of the powerful desert lords of the southlands. Refusing to be brought to heel by the northlands’ king, Scratha hands over his lands temporarily to the king and leaves to conduct his private war. Those who follow him, like the thief Idisto, and those who try to hold his lands, like the young noblewoman Alyea, are quickly drawn into the complex politics and turmoil of the desert. The author creates a lushly visual and highly detailed world of desert tribes, a language of beads, and a unique way of viewing the world. VERDICT This series opener features an exotic desert culture and strong male and female characters and should appeal to fans of Middle Eastern culture and folktales like the Arabian Nights.
A wealth of misspellings aside, we heartily agree. Congratulations, Leona!
