Sand Daughter | [Sarah Bryant]

Sand Daughter

It is the time of the Crusades: the Islamic world is divided and the Franks have captured the Holy Land. As the mighty Saladin struggles to unite the warring clans of Arabia against the invaders, Khalidah, a young Bedouin woman, finds herself a pawn in a deadly plot involving her own tribe and the powerful Templar Knights. Faced with certain death, she runs away with a man she barely knows, towards adventure and the echoes of a past that somehow connect her to the Jinn.

    "A little History with your Mystery!"

    Very interesting plot involves some ancient sites and societies, plus a bit of romance. As a student of the time period, the Templars and the Crusades - this one seems fairly accurate and adds a bit of invention to keep the plot moving along nicely. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading about this time and place.

    "Rather boring telling of an uninteresting story"

    Had all the elements of what should have been an irrestible book; exotic people in fascinating circumstances, danger, intrigue, and so on. Instead it was slow and ultimately uninteresting.

    "Didn't hold my interest at all."

    I normally love historical fiction set in the Middle East, but I couldn't even get to Part Two of Sand Daughter. It was slow-moving, and the writing wasn't unique enough to hold my interest despite the lagging pace. It opens with a character who is gone by the second chapter, and doesn't appear to have any bearing whatsoever on the story -- at least up until the point I stopped listening, which was near the halfway mark. I didn't like it, I'm sorry to say.
