Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi, The: A new fantasy series set a thousand years before The City of Brass

We rated this book:


No one can turn down a good pirate story, right? What if it’s about a kickass female character and set in the less predictable and lesser known Indian Ocean? And what if it happens to be written by bestselling author Shannon Chakraborty, author of the City of Brass series? And finally, what if it happens to be the start of a great new trilogy? Well, in that case, welcome to The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi.

Amina al-Sirafi has seemingly done it all. A renowned high seas pirate who has faced the fear of death more times than she can count, as well as dealing with royalty hellbent on revenge, rogues aplenty, more than a few husbands, and in one case and actual demon… hasn’t she earned the right to retire in peace?

But when the ultimate job lands in her lap with a really serious payday, she can’t really afford to say no, as she has a family to support. Also, it’s an important job: to rescue the kidnapped daughter of a good friend. Plus it’s one last chance to get the old crew back together again and have one last adventure. Only things are certainly not what they seem…
