Waiting on Wednesday: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This weeks book that I'm desperate to get my hands on:

Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

Publication: March 8, 2016

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Adventure

Goodreads Summary

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.

Why I'm desperate for Rebel of the Sands: 

I don't know what pulled me in the most the cover or the summary, it just looks so mystical and wondrous and I love it! And the summary promises fantasy and adventure plus some romance which is just icing on the cake. I know I'm being irrational but I'm all up for a handsome and mysterious stranger whisking me away on his mythical horse and we ride off into the sunset. *coughs* Fictionally, of course!

*looks at release date again*
