Throne of the Crescent Moon
Book Description HTML
The debut novel of Saladin Ahmed, Throne of the Crescent Moon, is something fresh and very conversant in the genre of fantasy. Moved as much by the fairytales of primitive Arabia and Persia as by the plot structures of great fantasy, the outcome is an appealing mixture. Featuring daring dervishes, leading alchemists, and a heavy ghost hunter looking for retirement as the main leading role, the book is the fast-paced and action-packed as one might think, and engaged me all night to finish it despite the present effects of a cold virus.
