    Inspired by pre Islamic Arabian history and traditions, A Ali Hasan Ali s The Guardians of Erum and the Calamitous Child of Socotra offers readers a fresh take on an tried and true premise, following an unassuming date farmer s journey Fada across the ancient Arabian landscape in a quest to save his kidnapped son from malevolent forces Throw in a battle for the fate of the planet and you have all the makings of a modern classic.Steeped in folklore and unraveling almost like a historic text Inspired by pre Islamic Arabian history and traditions, A Ali Hasan Ali s The Guardians of Erum and the Calamitous Child of Socotra offers readers a fresh take on an tried and true premise, following an unassuming date farmer s journey Fada across the ancient Arabian landscape in a quest to save his kidnapped son from malevolent forces Throw in a battle for the fate of the planet and you have all the makings of a modern classic.Steeped in folklore and unraveling almost like a historic text, The Guardians of Erum and the Calamitous Child is every bit the action laced adventure one might expect from the title But while Ali s novel is full of intense, imagery laden scenes that perfectly translate the epic scope and nature of his narrative, at its heart, the Abu Dhabi based author s story is about a father s love for his son, a concept with universal appeal that easily resonates across genres and readers from all walks of life.Eschewing many of Americanized tropes regarding the ancient Middle East face it, there s an entire generation out there whose introduction to the area came by way of Disney s Aladdin , Ali s novel will undoubtedly provide Western readers with a refreshing, vivid glimpse of an oft underrepresented time and place.While the Ali s overall writing bears some of the hallmarks of a first author disproportionately descriptive, underdeveloped dialogue and an over reliance on redundant sentence structure , the novel ultimately succeeds in spite of these minor limitations The fact that English is not the author s first language makes the work all theimpressive, as Ali s prose is on par with many of the U.S s self published authors.In short, A Ali Hasan Ali s The Guardians of Erum and the Calamitous Child of Socotra is a well written, timeless good vs evil story that is sure to resonate with a wide variety of readers

    I sincerely enjoyed reading this book It was a wonderful and fresh take on the fantasy genre The author generated a rich and unique world that allows readers to get drawn into the adventure that he has created Parts of the novel do read as a first book but that is far over shadowed by the author s beautiful descriptions and innovative writing.
