In this series opener inspired by ancient Arabian culture and myth, a young woman embarks on a perilous quest to return magic to the forest of the Arz. Zafira is a talented hunter, but because of her caliphate's social prejudice against women in positions of power, she fends for her village while disguised as a man. When the mysterious Silver Witch tasks her with traveling to a forbidden island to retrieve an artifact that could save civilization, Zafira takes the chance to prove herself. Along the way, she gains unexpected companions, including Nasir, a prince and assassin who is plotting to kill her on behalf of his wicked father. As the two brave constant threats, they develop a surprising connection as well as a mutual attraction. After a slow start, Faizal's strong debut develops its engaging premise with evocative worldbuilding and memorable characters. While the numerous plot threads create a somewhat overcrowded whole, lush descriptions of setting and food offer a vivid atmosphere, and the slow-brewing romance is an engaging contrast to the harrowing emotional and physical journey at the heart of the story. Ages 14 up. \n
