I'm a bit late posting this but I'm so in love with this cover for Rebel of the Sands that I have to share it with you! I've been excited about this book ever since I first heard about it from Faber & Faber and the wait until we can read is pure torture! Rebel of the Sands is Alwyn Hamilton's debut novel and it'll hit shelves in the UK on the 4th of February 2016.
Let's have a look at the AMAZING cover:
Now imagine all that gold printed with beautiful shiny foil and just imagine seeing this cover in the flesh. This book is literally going to be throwing itself off the shelves into people's hands isn't it!
In case the cover hasn't completely sold you (come on what's wrong with you if you're not planning on buying a copy of this???) have a look at the blurb:
Sold immediately at auction across the world, this phenomenal novel is the first in a trilogy packed with shooting contests, train robberies, festivals under the stars, powerful Djinni magic and an electrifying love story. This promises to be a global super lead.
"Tell me that and we'll go. Right now. Save ourselves and leave this place to burn. Tell me that's how you want your story to go and we'll write it straight across the sand."
Dustwalk is Amani's home. The desert sand is in her bones. But she wants to escape. More than a want. A need.
Then a foreigner with no name turns up to save her life, and with him the chance to run. But to where? The desert plains are full of danger. Sand and blood are swirling, and the Sultan's enemies are on the rise.
Be honest now - that got you didn't it? I am dying to get my hands on a copy of this book!
