Mirage – Blog Tour
I am so excited to announce that I am a part of the Mirage blog tour.
This blog tour is hosted by Aimee, Always.
I posted the Mirage: Book Review back in May, but today I am coming to you with a more creative post.
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
This book was another that I liked a lot more than I thought I would. 2018 has been the year for books y’all.
Mirage by Somaiya Daud is intelligently and creatively written and I absolutely cannot wait to continue the story when the next book comes out. I did feel as though the book has somewhat of an abrupt ending, but that’s probably because I didn’t want the book to end anyways.
This book is both sci-fi and fantasy, and I think that when those two genres are tied together, it makes for an awesome world, and story-telling.
The world-building at first was confusing as this story takes place on several different moons (which is super cool, by the way). After getting into the story more, the setting of the book made more sense and I really enjoyed it.
wow. Just wow. The characters are so well written, and I don’t want to spoil anything but our main character (Amani), the princess (Maran), and Idris have such differing personalities and the way that they grow and ebb through the story was just spectacular.

“On a small moon orbiting a large planet, in a small farmhouse in a small village, there was a box, and in this box was a feather.”
“You are not defined by the men in your life, no matter how powerful. You lived before them and you shall live after them. You can’t let them determine your path.”
“The crown of Dhiya has been stripped from me, my face changed, my body broken. But I was not a slave and I was not a spare. I was my mother’s daughter, and I would survive and endure. I would find my way home.”
“Happiness is rebellion.”

About the Author
Somaiya Daud was born in a Midwestern city, and spent a large part of her childhood and adolescence moving around. Like most writers, she started when she was young and never really stopped. Her love of all things books propelled her to get a degree in English literature (specializing in the medieval and early modern), and while she worked on her Master’s degree she doubled as a bookseller at Politics and Prose in their children’s department. Determined to remain in school for as long as possible, she packed her bags in 2014 and moved the west coast to pursue a doctoral degree in English literature. Now she’s preparing to write a dissertation on Victorians, rocks, race, and the environment.
