The Lioness of Morocco by Julia Drosten

The Lioness of Morocco is a well-paced historical fiction. While it wasn’t quite a can’t put it down sort of book, I did look forward to picking it back up whenever I was able. The only thing that really bugged me, and this could be related to it being a translation, is it included phrases in various languages, but every time a Muslim referred to deity it said God instead of Allah. This seemed a bit odd to me and after a while began to annoy me. It seems like at least some of the time it should have said Allah. Otherwise, though, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys good historical fiction.
