#149: The Frankincense Trail - Jody Kihara

In 200BC, frankincense was worth its weight in gold, making Arabia was the envy of the world. But wealth comes at a cost: the precious resin had to be transported along the Frankincense Road, a dangerous route through rocky mountains and barren desert.
Alia is a princess in a dwindling kingdom that lies on the Frankincense Road. Having grown up hearing tales of Bilqis, the Queen of Sheba, she dreams of finding a way to restore her kingdom’s former might. When a caravan journeying to the mysterious incense lands stops to take on travelers, she sees her chance.
She soon realizes, however, that her trust in the caravan leaders has been misguided. They are not mere incense merchants, but traitors and mercenaries. Alia’s journey soon turns from dangerous to life-threatening.
The Frankincense Trail is a story that transports the reader to a time and place reminiscent of the Arabian Nights tales.

Jody is going to do a giveaway on her Facebook page for TFT and she is giving away 5 copies and the winners can choose from print or digital copies.

My Opinion:
Cool story.
Though I wish Alia and the big bad trader would have hooked up. The chemistry was totally there!
I liked the way the story unfolded, though I did find it light in the adventure department.
People who like Aladdin will enjoy this book.


3/5


Recommend? To Aladdin fans.

  1. I don't think I've read anything set in Arabia during that time period, and sometimes settings make otherwise okay books truly enjoyable for me.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline.
