Praise for The Khalifah’s Mirror

Katy O’Dowd, writing in August’s Historical Novel Review, describes The Khalifah’s Mirror as “a beautifully written blend of history and fable… like taking a trip to a foreign country you’ve never been to before, immersing yourself in sights and smells and sounds that are utterly outside the everyday that you know.
