Hero at the Fall
by Hamilton, Alwyn

The breathless finale to the New York Times bestselling Rebel of the Sands series will have you on the edge of your seat until the dust from the final battle clears!

When gunslinging Amani Al'Hiza escaped her dead-end town, she never imagined she'd join a revolution, let alone lead one. But after the bloodthirsty Sultan of Miraji imprisoned the Rebel Prince Ahmed in the mythical city of Eremot, she doesn't have a choice. Armed with only her revolver, her wits, and her untameable Demdji powers, Amani must rally her skeleton crew of rebels for a rescue mission through the unforgiving desert to a place that, according to maps, doesn't exist. As she watches those she loves most lay their lives on the line against ghouls and enemy soldiers, Amani questions whether she can be the leader they need or if she is leading them all to their deaths.

Alwyn Hamilton was born in Toronto and lived between Canada, France, and Italy until the was three, when her family settled in the small French town of Beaune. She studied History of Art at King's College, Cambridge, graduated in 2009, and lives in London.

With the city under siege, half the rebels imprisoned, and Prince Ahmed believed dead, Amani is forced to take charge of the skeleton-crew rebellion in this heart-pounding conclusion to the Rebel of the Sands trilogy. Amani must play a game of cat and mouse with cautious alliances and negotiations with the Djinn to see the rebellion come back together and ultimately decide if she can sacrifice herself to save her country. After tricky negotiations with a legendary Djinni, Amani has the power to save one person, but can she choose between the rebel prince or her beloved Jin? Hamilton is a master of twists and unexpected surprises, and she again delivers shocking alliances, reappearances of characters long thought gone, and deadly choices.

Maas and Renée Ahdieh. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
