What to expect: Strong Muslim Girls, Packed Action, Adventure, and Lost Islamic History
Summary: In the second book of the Jannah Jewels Series, the girls are caught and thrown aboard the ship of Zheng He, the famous Chinese Muslim Admiral. Caught in a lightning thunderstorm, they must sail in raging waters to retrieve a rare medicine plant. Can the Jannah Jewels escape the fiery arrows of pirates and make it safely back home?
Our thoughts: This one is also a page turner and the Jannah Jewels meet their antagonist finally; Jaffar. The Chase in China is very exciting and the girls grow to be even more fierce. Jaffar shows himself to be rash, impatient, ill-tempered, and a bully. But the girls are up to the challenge.
Look out for book 3’s review in the series insha’Allah.
Our Rating: 4/5
