About the Author
Praise For The Scorpions of Zahir…
Review, Booklist, August, 2012:
Brodien-Jones mixes fantasy and adventure in a way that would make Indiana Jones feel right at home. Plucky Zagora, her absentminded father, and her often lazy brother are all changed by their journey, each finding out something unexpected about one another, the people they meet, and themselves.
Review, Kirkus Reviews, June 1, 2012:
Combine a… premise involving the link between a mysterious planet and a half-buried desert city, giant scorpions with the power to communicate, and an eccentric cast of characters, and you’ve got a wild ride indeed. [For] readers who enjoy immersing themselves in adventures featuring creepiness of both the historical and otherworldly varieties.
