It’s 1912, and in the Tangier streets, something is going on, something unacceptable…
Tariq, Fex and Asseem don’t know what’s hit them. Snatched from the streets of Tangier, Tariq is the natural leader; Fez is taken from his massacred tribe as a trophy. Margerat Owen is tricked into capture during her vacation in Tangier. All sold to the devilish Caid of the Kasbah, Margeret is stashed with the other girls for safekeeping and the boys are turned into camel racers. Aided by a graceful but deadly assassin and a limited but skillful resistance group they must escape and quickly as their lives are in danger. But is that enough?
I liked Rebels of the Kasbah because: 1 it was rebelliousness, 2: the plot was as good as a chocolate bar that melts on your tongue, 3: there was a girl to share the adventures. Could not put the book down. I got busted with my flashlight late at night at least twice. The one thing I didn’t like was that sometimes it was hard to tell who was talking and when, but other than that, everything was great. I would recommend this to 12 and up and to people who like the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull. I think the author and his team should feel very accomplished.
