Title: Of Sand and Malice Made (Song of Shattered Sands)
Author: Bradley P. Beaulieu
Published Date: September 6th 2016
Genre: Dark Fantasy
***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Çeda, the heroine of the widely anticipated, just-released novel Twelve Kings in Sharakhai, is the youngest pit fighter in the history of the great desert city of Sharakhai. In this prequel, she has already made her name in the arena as the fearsome, undefeated White Wolf; none but her closest friends and allies know her true identity.
But this all changes when she crosses the path of Rümayesh, an ehrekh, a sadistic creature forged long ago by the god of chaos. The ehrekh are usually desert dwellers, but this one lurks in the dark corners of Sharakhai, toying with and preying on humans. As Rümayesh works to unmask the White Wolf and claim Çeda for her own, Çeda’s struggle becomes a battle for her very soul.
Of Sand and Malice is the prequel to Twelve Kings in Sharakhai and is a perfect introduction to Bradley P. Beaulieu’s writing style. He has a certain finesse with his words that keeps a reader tangled in the pages of the book as if vines held you immobile and rooted in place. His characters are well rounded, and the multi-layers of his world are manipulated to a entice you to keep reading.
This book is a page turner and had me running to find the other books in the Twelve Kings in Sharakhai series!! Add this book to your TBR and make sure you make a point to read it! You will not be disappointed.
5 stars and a tip of my Nerd Girl hat!!
