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.
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.
Recommend? To Aladdin fans.
