The sizzling, un-put-downable sequel to the bestselling Rebel of the Sands!

Mere months ago, 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 djinni and Jin and the Blue-Eyed Bandit. In Traitor to the Throne, the only certainty is that everything will change.


Thank you Penguin Teen for sending me a copy of Traitor to the Throne for review. This in no way affected my opinion.

I loved Rebel of the Sands and was so excited to read the sequel. I thought Alwyn was going to write another fantastic novel, but Alwyn hit the ball out of the park. This book blew all my expectations away. Stakes are even higher and each rebel is fighting for their life against the Sultan. Amani is still that fierce little firecracker that finds her self in such unbearable situations for a girl made of the desert. I love Jin and Amani's love story but another couple won my heart in this book. Navid and his love for Imin in any for just stole my heart. 

"All that I am I give to you, and all that I have is yours. Until the day we die."

With so many twists and turns this book was a sandstorm of action, romance and emotion. This series is not bound by age and is a series people of any age will love and come back to over and over again. One of the most emotional and epic conclusions. I need book 3 like yesterday. I am giving Traitor to the Throne 5 out of 5 stars!

Author Bio:

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.
