Read in March, 2012

A desert fantasy adventure with a band of misfits, Adoulla, the last ghul hunter, his apprentice, an orphaned Bedouin, and his older comrades need to figure out a mystery to save their city. A mix of religion, magic, and politics with an Islamic background and customs that is remiss in today’s fantasy genre. The book is a quick paced adventure story filled with interesting characters and settings. The only draw back is that the story is over too quickly, I would have liked more of a build to the third act and felt the ending was a bit rushed. Even so, I will waiting for the second book in this trilogy to see where the author leads these characters.
