Never heard of it before today, but it sounds good enough to request it from the library. It'll be a week or more before I can read it.

Here is his bio: http://www.saladinahmed.com/wordpress/biography

The setting and characters have more of an Arabic influence than they do a European/West influence.

Jordan apparently was a big influence in his life.

SO if this book turns out to be RJ with a bit of Arabian Nights then I am most definitely in.

Was hoping someone had read it first though before I spend the dough.

I'm about one-third the way through, and I'm glad it's a library book; I wouldn't spend the money to own a copy. :(

It's not a terribly bad book, but it is slow, preachy, and the characters aren't particularly likeable.

YMMV -- some people liked COT and others think it's best skipped over. :D
