I received Emaddin Adventures: A sequel to the 1001 Arabian Nights through a Goodreads Giveaway.

I read the second book of the Emaddin Adventures series before I read the first book, which is a strange way to go about reading a series but unfortunately, I won the Goodreads Giveaways in reverse order. Nonetheless, despite this unorthodox way of reading the series I did find myself quite enjoying Emaddin Adventures. The artwork is adorable, and the storyline is quite sweet. I do favor the second

This book—arguably a novella or novelette at this length—is a fascinating retelling of one of the more famous stories from One Thousand and One Arabian Nights, “Aladdin and the Magic Lamp”. However, this is definitely not the story we have all grown up reading—or, for that matter, the one we in the West are accustomed to seeing courtesy of Disney. Instead, this tale focuses on the Sultan, his kingdom, his efforts to care for his kingdom, and the one man bent on taking it all from him: his most ...more

The book starts with describing the beauty of the city Baghdad. The book portrays the common structure of the Sultan's association where his best friend is conspiring against him. But our king is a good king like Ned Stark who lives his life with morals, and trust his subjects. Baghdad’s portrayal in the book is dream life where it has all the lives luxuries from bathrooms to water and drainage system.
The book contains many architectural details from different eras, all around the world.

Amazing read

A thrilling tale about the sultan and intricacies of power in Baghdad: I was lost at the start when the author brought in different characters into the picture, but I was impressed as I got to understand how each one played a role in the story and the complicated relationship between them. It was a bit slow to start, but not at all uneasy to read. I admit it is fascinating delightful and informative about time with great suspense due to the impending war, so well written. The author

In this reimagining of the classic tale of the 1001 Arabian Nights, Pasha renders a world chock full of magic, betrayal and greed. The book’s world is decently fleshed out with various layers of class and military politics as its readers are led through a tale of how the protagonist Emmadin, the poverty-stricken street rat, navigates the operations of Sultan Omran’s kingdom. The development of Emmadin's character was thoroughly enjoyable—from being taken under the mystic Zeriab’s wing, to his ...more

Recommends it for: fantasy lovers
A true treat for lovers of fictitious fantasy, 'Emaddin Adventures' tells the tale of a young boy forced to live in the streets with his mother after the unfortunate death of his father. Despite the relatively small word count, the author hasn't sacrificed the plot in the slightest - in fact, Omar Pasha has written about the pains of young love, betrayal, and loss so eloquently that there are times you feel as though you are actually in Baghdad, in the place of the protagonists.

The first book in an ongoing series, Emaddin Adventures is a fun and fast paced adventure book that follows the attempt to overthrow Sultan Omran by his trusted minister, Aqrab. The book, being the first in the series, takes its time at the start to really lay out the setting of the story and introduce us to the characters and their environment. While not the most exciting part of the book it does wonders in making the series enjoyable by having such a descriptive and fleshed out location for ...more

The book shed light on a brief history of Baghdad and how developed the city. It also entails the traits of a good leader, which the sultan showed to his subjects. The action of Aqrab shows that no matter how just a leader is, some of his subjects can still go and plan a coup to dethrone him. The writer also takes us through the story of Emaddin as the title of the book states, a twelve years old boy, who shows a high level of intelligence, which made sultan's alchemist choose him as part of his ...more

*No spoilers* This book started out a little slow but doesn’t take you long to be wholeheartedly pulled into this exciting and intriguing story. I love the characters and the intricate and dynamic relationships between them all. They keep you so engaged in the story. I really enjoyed how well the city of Baghdad was described within this book – you could actually picture it from how beautifully it had been described. It feels like there is so much rich history within the pages of this book. I ...more

Emaddin adventures follows the wonderful kingdom of the Sultan, in Baghdad. The story involves young love, bravery, betrayal and loss. The writer uses excellent descriptive that transport you to the world they have created. There are a few minor spelling mistakes, but not enough to make the story unenjoyable. I would absolutely read from this author again. I felt my heart aching for Emaddin when he is imprisoned for treason because of the hateful work of Aqrab. I can only hope that reader ...more

Thrilling ride into a magical world
It is a fast paced engaging read. I am thankful that I stumbled upon this book. It tells the story of Emaddin, a 12 year old boy who befriends Lamar, the daughter of Sultan himself. They soon unfurl a plot to overthrow the Sultan by his trusted advisers together.

This was such a quick read, but I was impressed with all that was packed into it! I loved the characters, the setting and the plot. It had a great voice, and fun action, though I will admit that it took me a few pages to really feel immersed into the story, I am glad I held out. My biggest complaint was that it was too short.

After reading a bit, the book engages the reader with its brilliant story telling. It is a good read both for children as well as grown ups.
It creates a mystical world in ancient Baghdad. Where we see interaction between hope, love, aspirations and even betrayals. It captivates the reader and leaves him satisfied after finishing it.

The idea of flying camels and giant crocodile is pretty amazing. I wish we had flying camels. This book gives a new idea for a new magical world we can create in our imagination. A world where magic is limited to good people and is used only for good reasons.

It is a fantastic read. Having best friends whom you can trust is amazing but one should not be ignorant towards its surroundings. This is what we learned from this book with so many other things. It makes a decent read for new readers.

Cute short tale set in the same land as aladdin. I got this book in a goodreads giveaway. Better for middle grade.

Book was ok

I found this story to be a little boring . It has the potential to be a great story similar to Aladdin however was very confusing at times.
