Guys this was so good The Arabian sci fi setting was perfect and I adored the characters They were all so layered and complex Pre order this one ASAP Full review to come.

On February 27,2017 I added Mirage to my , and I have been waiting ever since to read it I was not disappointed I absolutely loved Somaiya Daud s writing Everything about it, was wonderful I completely recommend this book to anyone RTC

Veronica Roth recommends this book.If that doesn t get you needing to read it, I don t know what will.
