Shahriar Bourbour’s book Arash the Archer is about a young boy with high hopes and dreams. He is the son of an exalted alchemist and former soldier in the army of King Manucher. Arash is finally ready to see the family treasure. Arash will also meet friendly spirits and battle evil demons and make new friends to restore peace and prosperity to his people.
This is a good book for its intended audience of younger/beginning readers. For older audiences I would not recommend. The characters are rather generic as well as the plot. I do like how the book demonstrates traditional Persian culture in a way that is easy for people not familiar with it to understand.
