Firstly, I would like to apologise to Tom for not blogging about his amazing book, I didn’t put the date in my diary and I can only apologise to Tom and to Rachel who organised the blog tour. But, I wanted to do a spot light feature on my blog. 

About the Book 

Politics is false. Power is real. 

Ben longs to be prime minister one day. But with no political connections he is about to crash out of a Masters degree with no future ahead. So when by chance he becomes fast friends with a young Arab prince and is offered a job in his government, he jumps at the chance to get on the political ladder. 

Amal dreads the throne. And with Ben’s help he wants to reform his country, steering it onto a path towards democracy. But with the King’s health failing, revolutionaries in the streets, and terrorism threatening everyone, the country is ready to tear itself apart. 

Alone in a hostile land, Ben must help Amal weigh what is best against what is right, making decisions that will risk his country, his family and his life.
