Faris by Ingrid Seymour
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
All Faris wants is to become great in battle and fight for his country. But then his father arranges a marriage with the general’s daughter. Torn between duty, family and his own desires, Faris must decide which is most important, knowing that any choice he makes will have dire consequences.
For a short read, this packs a punch. The Middle Eastern setting is beautifully depicted (think Aladdin), the characters well defined, and the twists will keep you guessing. My only wish is that the author had more definitively stated the ending (view spoiler)[ that he had become a djinn (hide spoiler)].
Otherwise, Faris is an excellent read.
(The book was on Instafreebie, but I’m not sure if it’s there anymore.)
**This book is clean!
