Amira & Hamza: The Quest for the Ring of Power

Amira and Hamza are back in this epic sequel, which takes readers on a thrilling magical adventure as the siblings face their most terrifying and formidable opponent yet.All human and jinn kind shall bow down to me. Control the Ring, control the worlds.
Amira and Hamza have returned from Qaf, the magical Jinn world, as triumphant heroes–and life has been pleasantly quiet. Too quiet. Hamza is determined to have one last monumental, epic adventure before summer ends. But when sneaking off to explore an old, abandoned castle goes from life-changing adventure to potentially deadly, Amira and Hamza find themselves in the middle of another dangerous quest to save the worlds. One they didn’t bargain for.
The siblings are brought face to face with the evil dev, Ahriman, angry and out for revenge. And if Amira and Hamza thought Ifrit was bad, his dad Ahriman, the last in an ancient line of fire spirits, is far worse.
Ahriman kidnaps Hamza and forces him to help locate the lost Ring of Power, an ancient and mysterious artifact that will allow him to rule the universe. Desperate to save her brother, Amira must outsmart perilous traps and confounding puzzles in a race against time to retrieve the artifact before Ahriman does or say goodbye to Hamza and their world forever.
This sibling duo is at it again! In this second installment of Amira & Hamza, we find ourselves on another grand adventure. However, in this book Hamza is kidnapped and Amira will stop at nothing to save her little brother. I enjoyed this book just as much as the first, which I don’t find happening often. I think the tension was definitely raised in this one. I especially found the closeness of Amira and Hamza to be phenomenal. The storyline was fun and unique. Althought this is geared towards younger readers (8-12), I still feel that it can be enjoyed by all ages. Samira’s writing is inviting and propels you forward smoothly. Overall, great read! I’m hoping to see more of this sister and brother team in the near future!
