In this Series Review, I have amalgamated my previous reviews for Rebel of the Sands, Traitor to the Throne, and Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton, so that my readers can find all the information regarding this series quickly and easily in one place.
I have also included a brief review of the series as an entity at the end (following the three individual book reviews), and I must remind readers of this – while the individual book reviews are (generally speaking) free of any major spoilers, the later books will include potential spoilers from the earlier ones.

Following the success of Rebel of the Sands and Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton, the third and final book in the trilogy, Hero at the Fall, was released in North America on March 6, 2018, and promises to be a breathless finale to the New York Times bestselling Rebel of the Sands series. It will have readers on the edge of their seats 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.

Here we are again – another month, another To Be Read List. I’ll be honest with you all (to those of you who actually read these, anyways), I mostly share these lists for my own personal reference, for months from now (when I actually have free time) when I want to go back a read books I missed during the mayhem that is the school year. And let’s be honest – 2018 has been riddled with fantastic YA Fantasy and Sci-Fi releases thus far, not to mention all the Adult Fantasy books that have found their way onto my shelves in recent weeks. I don’t want to miss a thing!
But I’ll be honest – life is busy. My TBR list is often out of control. So I have created a physical system to limit my book buying – a “TBR Box”. If the box is full, I can’t buy another book until there is room for it. This is actually working quite well so far! You’ll see my TBR box featured on my Bookstagram now and then (and here it is below – although it’s not holding TBR books in this photo!).
How do you control your To Be Read Books?
I did pretty good last month – despite how busy February always ends up being, I managed to read nearly all the books on my list (which you can find here). Those that I didn’t quite find the time to get to have been included on this list – here’s to hoping I can tackle this months list just as efficiently (Please note that the below list is based on my own personal interests and release dates in Canada)!
