To pass Wanting never solved anything Sometimes I look around at my bookshelves and mentally berate myself about the number of titles I have nestled along them that I still have not read yet Mirage was until recently one of those books I had bought it on a whim when it was on a good sale tucked it away on a shelf and there it sat for a year Then something nagged at me to pick it up to give it a chance Who am I to say no to the nagging voice in the back of my headThat nagging voice Shadow of the Wolf (Hearts Desire, did not steer me wrong as Mirage was exactly the book I neededThis title comes in at 320 pages US hardcover edition which is relatively short for a fantasy novel in recent years Each of those 320 pages packs a punch and I was not left feeling wanting foretail or insight Everything you need to love and enjoy this book is within those pages It makes every page every sentence countThe basis of this story revolves around an entire culture and people being swallowed up and Smijurija u mjerama destroyed by a foreign entity In this case that foreign entity happens to be a race of invaders from another planet however one can not help but toraw similarities between this occurrence and times it has happened on our very own planet Except here in the real world cultures and peoples have been eaten up by invaders from other countries Entire cultures religions and histories Speer destroyed underfoot without hardly a thought by the conuerers If thisoesn t make you angry it should I like the parallels Mirage pulled from instances of this happening in our world to use in Daud s fictional worldThat being said we of course have our heroine who is torn from her family and left at the mercy of these cruel invaders for use to their own ends Amani s mental strengths and weaknesses Ultralearning during this ordeal have been labeled as unbelievable by some reviewers but I beg toiffer People The Ring Of The Dove don t give enough credit to the capabilities of children and teenagers to adapt toifferent environments I enjoyed Amani s journey of pain and heartache that grows into strength and The Lost Literature of Medieval England determination as she navigates her knew lifeOverall this book is a uick read but it has many elements I enjoy Dynamic character growth sci fi gentle romance family ties and cultures and practices thatiffer from my own I recommend this book if you are looking for a good SFF without all the extra fluff that can weigh a story A Curse of Kings down or make itrag on Especially if you Garfield Dishes It Out (Garfield, don t read a lot or if you are getting back into reading after a long absence Mirage is an easy book to read whichoesn t Im a Narwhal demand too much of you as a reader The premise and world building are amazing and it is easily one of my favourite books that I ve read this yearHowever it s easiness is also why Ion t give it 5 stars Mirage has the potential to be a very good political intrigue book but our POV character simply knows too much about what is going on for that meaning that you get spoon fed information that it would have been satisfying to have to work out for yourself This makes the story hard to engage with on any eeper level than casual light reading which is a shame because the premise holds so much potential for this book to be than it ended up being Either way it s still a good book Somaiya Daud s Mirage a YA novel gives us the story of three vibrant characters in a Moroccan Space Opera that reads a bit like fantasy than sci fi We have Amani a classic heroine who is clever goodhearted and brave Maram an antiheroine princess and heir apparent to a violent invading Vethek people who have invaded and subjugated the pea.
