Staff Reviews

A multicultural fantasy novel with broad appeal! This novel combines a family saga, a politically radical story, and prophesy-packed circular creation tales. Maryam is born to a mother disappeared by the demons during the Casablanca Bread Riots of 1981. She's a very odd, special child, and is given three gifts and a curse, and tasked with bringing about change. Alaoui's work is literary in its beautiful language and ambitious in its execution, while also telling a sprawling, engrossing story populated by a host of believable characters, both human and not.
