Waiting on Wednesday: Rebel of the Sands

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Rebel of the Sands
She’s more gunpowder than girl—and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and barren wastes, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still practice their magic. But there's nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can't wait to escape from. 

Destined to wind up "wed or dead," Amani’s counting on her sharpshooting skills to get her out of Dustwalk. When she meets Jin, a mysterious and devastatingly handsome foreigner, in a shooting contest, she figures he’s the perfect escape route. But in all her years spent dreaming of leaving home, she never imagined she'd gallop away on a mythical horse, fleeing the murderous Sultan's army, with a fugitive who's wanted for treason. And she'd never have predicted she'd fall in love with him...or that he'd help her unlock the powerful truth of who she really is. ~Goodreads

Okay, so I was super, super pumped about Rebel of the Sands after reading the above synopsis. THEN the Penguin Spring 2016 sampler came out with the first TWO CHAPTERS.... you guys. Guys. GUYS. IT IS SO FREAKING GOOD. TWO CHAPTERS AND I AM HOOKED. I need this book ASAP! Go, get on outta here! Go read those chapters! Be sure to come back and let me know what you thought, we can squee together over the "Eastern Snake" ;)
