Another brilliant written book by Farah Zaman. If you’re looking for fun, adventure, mystery and crime, this is the book! I was pulled in from the first chapter, flipping through pages like no tomorrow, wanting answers. It was great to see muslim teens comfortable with who they are, with excellent characteristics. They were polite, loving and respectful. They offered salams, they made time to pray. They were a joy to follow through the story.
The highlight for me is the use of sorcery, muslims p

1- The pacing of the story was excellent. The story grabs your attention very early on in the book and the action picks up pace quickly. I don't remember ever feeling bored or struggling to get through the manuscript.

2- The writing is fluid and accessible. Not too dense, clunky or wordy. This also made it easy to digest and helped with the general flow of the story. You'd be amazed how often overuse of language can become a barrier for a reader. This wasn't the case with the book.
