This post is a part of the Penguin Young Readers blog tour for Rebel of the Sands (which I absolutely adored, and you should definitely check out my review, in which I listed the five most awesome aspects of the book), in preparation for the upcoming 3rd book in the series, Hero at the Fall! Yay!
What I didn't mention in my review, though, was how beautiful the quotes in the book were… Shame on me, I know. To make up for it, I've created some Rebel of the Sands quote posters that you can download for free for your laptops or phones! Woot!
THE QUOTE WALLPAPERS
First off, I tried to do a design that was similar to the original book cover (which I think is absolutely gorgeous). It's pretty simple, with calming blue colors, and then that shine of gold to highlight the quote! (I'm currently using this one as my phone wallpaper!)
"But if knowledge was power, then the unknown was the greatest weakness of immortal things."
Next, I did a more abstract version, but with the same elegant color scheme. This one's more chic and graceful, if I do say so myself. The words are bold and white, this time around.
"Haven't you ever wanted something so bad that it becomes more than a want?"
BOOKS IN THE SERIESREBEL OF THE SANDS
Arabian Nights meets Mockingjay in a world unlike any you've ever seen before!
Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and remote areas, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still perform their magic. But there's nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can't wait to escape from. When the gunslinging girl meets Jin, a mysterious and devastatingly handsome foreigner, in a shooting contest, she sees him as the perfect escape route. But in all her years spent dreaming of leaving Dustwalk, she never imagined she'd gallop away on a mythical horse, fleeing the murderous Sultan's army, with a fugitive who's part of the secret rebel movement plotting to overthrow the Sultan. And she'd never have predicted she'd fall in love with him . . . or that he'd help her unlock the truth about who–and what–she is. Debut author Alwyn Hamilton weaves this spellbinding story of treason, passion, and magic.
A sizzling, unputdownable sequel to Rebel of the Sands that will make you question everything you thought you knew about the land of Miraji!
The gunslinger Amani al'Hiza never wanted to be a hero or a revolutionary, but now she's become a key member of the rapidly growing rebellion against the Sultan of Miraji. After Amani is captured by the Sultan's army and imprisoned in his palace, she realizes she's there not to be questioned as a rebel but used as a Demdji. As Amani tries to spy on the enemy and plots her escape, Jin and the rebels are brewing a rescue plan. But the longer Amani stays in the palace, the more she questions if the Sultan is the tyrant she's believed or just a ruler fighting foreigners for his country. As the rebellion swiftly spirals into war, Amani wonders whether she's on the right side.
The breathless finale to the New York Times bestselling Rebel of the Sands series will have you on the edge of your seat until the dust from the final battle clears!
When gunslinging Amani Al'Hiza escaped her dead-end town, she never imagined she'd join a revolution, let alone lead one. But after the bloodthirsty Sultan of Miraji imprisoned the Rebel Prince Ahmed in the mythical city of Eremot, she doesn't have a choice. Armed with only her revolver, her wits, and her untameable Demdji powers, Amani must rally her skeleton crew of rebels for a rescue mission through the unforgiving desert to a place that, according to maps, doesn't exist. As she watches those she loves most lay their lives on the line against ghouls and enemy soldiers, Amani questions whether she can be the leader they need or if she is leading them all to their deaths.
