The Amulets of Sihr, written by Abu Bilaal Yakub:

A story of desert realms, shifting sands, despicable "normalcy" of slavery, Jinn, treachery, and Sorcery! Appreciated, but with some flaws, which can spoil reading it.

To me the descriptions & standard dialogues failed to outmatch narrating & storytelling. It is, by now, what each 99 cent fantasy novel dishes us across hundreds of pages.

A general's duty to oppose the dark prince (Shaitan, Sauron, Hitler...) of his age, a city of the dead with secrets, dangerous witches & torture... Could be a saga, and reminds of a time, when no crusades and no racism impaired those exotic cultures and oriental mindsets.

I was asked to review by #Smashwords. I would say only 3 stars, but I vote 5 stars, so others can judge it. Thanks for granting me a cost-free copy!
