    I love love love this story My only complaint is that the book does not stand well on its own It is simply the first part to a much longer tale You will not be able to read this book and not buy the next ones, because it stops right in the middle of the story What happened to the days you could buy a great big novel and the whole story was there, no matter how many pages it took Anyway, lets get back to the book I think the writing is brilliant The story is unique at least for me and ver I love love love this story My only complaint is that the book does not stand well on its own It is simply the first part to a much longer tale You will not be able to read this book and not buy the next ones, because it stops right in the middle of the story What happened to the days you could buy a great big novel and the whole story was there, no matter how many pages it took Anyway, lets get back to the book I think the writing is brilliant The story is unique at least for me and very interesting The characters are wonderful, the descriptions are amazing I was caught up from the beginning I have no idea where this story is going to go or what might happen and I love that in a book I love the creatures, wizards, kings and peasants The history and beliefs of these ancient people have me completely captivated.I will read every story Stephen Goldin writes, no matter how many books are in the series I think he is that good Another favorite Stephen in my Authors list

    I enjoyed this book very much I think it was a great journey through Arab style setting and the immense expanse of desert and magic The story was good, the descriptive words were captivating, the imagery was well used, and the metaphors were sort of overused but I couldn t expect less from a story featuring sages and mages The characters were well formed, each with distinct characteristics, personalities, souls, and motivations I like the characterization and plot development that the stor I enjoyed this book very much I think it was a great journey through Arab style setting and the immense expanse of desert and magic The story was good, the descriptive words were captivating, the imagery was well used, and the metaphors were sort of overused but I couldn t expect less from a story featuring sages and mages The characters were well formed, each with distinct characteristics, personalities, souls, and motivations I like the characterization and plot development that the story took from its beginnings It seeped in me a feel of familiarity and growth As the story progressed,twists were added to the story, making it an exciting read Though I must confess that many of the twists and whatnot were kind of predictable For instance, I knew that Jafar would end up with Cari s ring ten chapters before it actually happened And that some way or the other, Jafar and Ahmad will end up traveling together The story, though somewhat original, has a familiar sound from all the fantasy like stories preceding this one Though Shrine of the Desert Mage has its merits as well I didn t like how the first book ended , like it creates an immediate link to the next installment without giving this installment a proper ending For example, I don t know what happened to Hakem Rafi and Aeshma other that they escaped For some reason, at the end of the book, the story shifted and focusedon Ahmad, Umar, Jafar, Selima, and Cari and forgot all about everyone else One thing that I liked about this story was the objectivity and partiality that the author presented each character, giving the same importance to each one When I first started reading, I couldn t define who the main characters were because he the author wrote of everybody with the same importance.As for the story, great story, as I mentioned before For some reason I like Cari the best, and Jafar the least But that might be because of how Jafar cunningly deceived Cari in the beginning For the technical part of the writing, I can tell the author did a great job at studying the Middle East and desert like traditions because the entire book was infused with it He also used beautiful, artistic, and poetic words to describe many of the settings and instances of the book I feel that I learned a lot of vocabulary words and customs and traditions from that faraway land.One thing I was slightly annoyed with was how Umar told Ahmad to recite the origin of Parsina to him It felt like the author was trying to explain the origins of the world through the mouths of their characters, which I find highly acceptable, but overused by so many authors The reason I didn t give this a five star as I wanted to was because the story didn t hook me I didn t feel the urge to grab my kindle and read it until I felt satisfied with the amount of reading I did during that determined time, or finished it in one day However, I do recommend this book Well, overall I think this is a great story, beautiful writing style, in depth analysis and presentation of a totally different culture, and spell binding story I will welcome the second installment with much eagerness

    I thought this book was pretty good It was really, realy slow for the first five chapters, but then it picked up, and just kept rolling The plot was interesting, and I can honestly say I have never read anything like this before I don t like that the book ended in the the middle of the story so that now I have to read the other books I feel like I just stepped out of the premiere for the second Lord of the Rings movie knowing that i now have to wait to watch the final installment of course I thought this book was pretty good It was really, realy slow for the first five chapters, but then it picked up, and just kept rolling The plot was interesting, and I can honestly say I have never read anything like this before I don t like that the book ended in the the middle of the story so that now I have to read the other books I feel like I just stepped out of the premiere for the second Lord of the Rings movie knowing that i now have to wait to watch the final installment of course this time around I m waiting for different reasons and I hope there isthan two books in the saga The other thing I didn t like was the amount of detail There was way too much, and my senses couldn t take it in Even now, as I am writing this review, I feel like I have to read the book again just to have a clearer understanding of the basic plot because of all the details AnywayIi thought the book was awesome I recommend this book for anyone with about an eigth grade reading level
