Is It Any Good?

Author Alwyn Hamilton really comes into her own in this exciting finale to her Rebel of the Sands trilogy. She seamlessly blends catching the reader up on past events with almost nonstop action that keeps the pages turning. Keeping track of Hero at the Fall's large cast of characters is easier than in the second book, thanks to an overall improved structure to the story and a handy character guide in the front.

Teens who are fantasy fans will relate to Amani as she comes to terms with her past, her magical abilities, and even her mortality. They'll also enjoy the vivid fantasy world's exotic, Arabian Nights vibe that's rich with its own folklore and that also cleverly illustrates how real people and events become part of folklore, too.
