Jasmine Richards was born in London, grew up in a library, and was the first in her family to go to university. Jasmine's writing is beautiful, descriptive and it held my attention the entire time I spent reading The Book of Wonders. After graduating from Oxford she had a brief stint at New Scotland Yard, then chose a career in publishing over being the next Sherlock Holmes. She made it extremely easy for me to picture her richly detailed world, and her characters in my mind.

The Book of Wonders book. Zardi is the main character in Jasmine Richards‘ The Book of Wonders, an exciting new adventure for middle readers. In the kingdom of Arribitha, magic is taboo. Magic, Djinn, Ogres, and Sorcerers  . Fantastical beings have long been banned.

Cavernous chambers led off from one another and hundreds of candles lit the way. They walked deeper into the house, leaving the outside world far behind. and Zardi’s eyelids drooped as she breathed it in deeply. The edges of everything became softer. Hey, which way did he go?. Zardi opened her eyes to see Rhidan squinting in the low light. She pointed over to the first chamber. I guess we should look in there. They walked into the room calling Sinbad’s name, but there was no reply. She is the author of Keeper of Myths, Secrets of Valhalla, and The Book of Wonders, of which School Library Journal said, Swiftly paced writing, appealing characters, and action packed; will appeal to fans of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson books.

But anyone who is caught whispering of their powers will feel the rage of the sultan-a terrifying tyrant who, even with his eyes closed, can see all.

The Book of Wonders - Jasmine Richards. I wonder how it works. Zardi shook her head. I can’t believe you’re more excited about a writing instrument than a tale about a quest, a monster, and a wizard. You’re so weird sometimes. I heard the noise first. Rhidan ignored her. So, which lucky soul should get this autograph? Sinbad called out.

Sorcerers, Cyclops, Djinnis . . . Magic.

Thirteen-year-old Zardi loves to hear stories about fantastical beings long banned from the kingdom of Arribitha. But anyone who is caught whispering of their powers will feel the rage of the sultan—a terrifying tyrant who, even with his eyes closed, can see all.

When her own beloved sister is captured by the evil ruler, Zardi knows that she must risk everything to rescue her. Along with Rhidan, who is her best friend, and an unlikely crew of sailors led by the infamous Captain Sinbad, Zardi ventures forth into strange and wondrous territory with a seemingly impossible mission: to bring magic back to Arribitha and defeat the sultan once and for all.

This was an amazing book. I read it to my daughter when it first came out and have just finished reading it to my son. Ms. Richards has an amazing way of visualizing the story through her style of writing, and I am drawn back into the story as if I am right there with Zardi. Great nook for age 10 and up, O would say, but I even enjoy it as an adult. Well done!

The book will give you a story that won't allow you to sleep! I stayed up till 5 am reading it.

This beautifully written tale will have readers rapidly turning pages and begging for more. Magic, mystery, and friendship. It's an exceptional start to what I'm sure will be an outstanding series. Young readers will adore the adventure. Older readers will appreciate the ingenious ties to Scheherazade and ONE THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS.

This book was a real page turner which was great as my child wanted to do extra reading. The reader was transported to this other world full of magic and beauty which you could picture with ease and without needing to get caught too long on description. You could imaging this book making a great film.

The book also had fantastic characters. It is refreshing to have characters who are exciting and are full of the best human traits. However, the characters also make mistakes and do feel difficult emotions such as jealous. This makes them accessible to the readers and in an addition from teaching them right and wrong, also teaches them about dealing with difficult emotions and repairing relationships. This is all done subtely and without interrupting the world.

I can't wait for the sequal!

Zardi, short for Scheherazade, loves hearing stories about the times when magic was plentiful and abundant in the land of Arribitha. But those times are gone, ever since the evil sultan, Shahryar, came to power and forbade anyone from even talking about magic. When her sister, Zubeyda, is taken to be the sultan's next praisemaker - a job that always results in the girl's death - and her father is imprisoned, Zardi and her friend Rhidan must seek out Sinbad, and hope that the sailor's tales of lands faraway are true. Together they're all thrust into an adventure that none of them saw coming.

This was a really fun book that used the tales of One Thousand and One Nights in a very interesting way. Zardi was a downright fantastic female lead: she's tough, stubborn, and unwilling to give up. Her friendship with Rhidan is first rate, too, and I liked the way they complemented each other. While I'm familiar in passing with the story of Sinbad, this was an interesting look at his character, and definitely tarnishes the legend just a bit. Zardi is unrelenting in her search to save Zubeyda, and is willing to face danger after danger in order to ensure her sister's life. While the adventures were fun (and dangerous!), it was her spirit that really made me love this book. She was just a really perfect narrator.

I will say that this book took me far longer to read than it should have, because I stopped midway through to read a whole bunch of other things instead. This is not a knock on the book - I was thoroughly enjoying it - but it does suffer a bit from what I call the "non-stop action" affliction. Zardi and the others certainly have to go through a lot.

Also, a word of caution, this is very clearly the start of a new series, which doesn't become apparent until almost the very end. While one story line is wrapped up, there are tons of other things that have yet to be figured out. The book doesn't really end on a cliffhanger, though, so much as it's very open-ended. I look forward to seeing what Zardi and Rhidan get up to next.

A fantastic debut that's full of adventure, fantasy, friendship and a whole lot of charm. I felt like a kid all over again while reading this compelling story. There's something about a well written middle grade book that reminds me of the excitement I had when I first started reading them (what feels like eons ago), and this book has that excitement. The journey with Zardi and her best friend Rhidan isn't just thrilling, it was completely engaging. The world of Arribitha screams of adventure, because it is dangerous, full of myths, magical creatures and a place where magic is strictly forbidden. It's also ruled by an evil and cunning Sultan who isn't afraid to do whatever it takes to keep his people in line. He definitely gives evil villains a who new meaning. Mixed into the story's danger are two well characters I've really come to admire.

I love that this story's main character is a strong female lead. Zardi will do everything she can to save her family from the Sultan, and thankfully she has her trusted best friend, Rhidan, who's equally as strong in his own right, to help her. These two have such an amazingly strong bond and will do anything to help each other on their journey and to fulfill Zardi's destiny. I loved being introduced to the two of them, as well as to some of the more vibrantly written secondary characters that aid them on their journey.

Jasmine's writing is beautiful, descriptive and it held my attention the entire time I spent reading The Book of Wonders. She made it extremely easy for me to picture her richly detailed world, and her characters in my mind. Their world is beautiful, enticing, magical and the story itself is fascinating. Jasmine does such a brilliant job at weaving together all the right elements to bring this adventure to life. Her lore is rich and inviting, her fresh spin on the mythology of Sinbad, and the tales of Aladdin and the Arabian Nights is intriguing. If this beautiful cover doesn't already lure you into the world of Arribitha, than the story definitely will. I highly recommend picking up this exciting fantasy/adventure story! I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in this series.
