Gunslinger Amani al'Hiza fled her dead-end hometown on the back of a mythical horse with the mysterious foreigner Jin, seeking only her own freedom. Now she’s fighting to liberate the entire desert nation of Miraji from a bloodthirsty sultan who slew his own father to capture the throne.
When Amani finds herself thrust into the epicenter of the regime—the Sultan’s palace—she’s determined to bring the tyrant down. Desperate to uncover the Sultan’s secrets by spying on his court, she tries to forget that Jin disappeared just as she was getting closest to him, and that she’s a prisoner of the enemy. But the longer she remains, the more she questions whether the Sultan is really the villain she’s been told he is, and who’s the real traitor to her sun-bleached, magic-filled homeland.
Forget everything you thought you knew about Miraji, about the rebellion, about Djinn and Jin and the Blue-Eyed Bandit. In Traitor to the Throne, the only certainty is that everything will change.@goodreads
She can control the sand.
She's a Demdji. She's a blue-eyed bandit. She's Amani Al-Hiza and she's a bad @ss chic!
I love Amani. I mean sure, she doesn't always make the right choice but who does. Amani fights for her people and it's awesome.
I still have a crush on Jin but we shall see in the next book.
I loved the first book better than this one but it might have just been my mood. I think I might read all three of them together next time.
I did love it. And the ending!!!!!! What! Just! Happened!
