Kidnapped on the streets of Tangier and sold into slavery, Tariq, Fez, and Aseem are fighting for their lives with the evil warlord, Caid Ali Tamzali, ruler of the Rif Mountains. Joined by British school girl Margaret Owen, also kidnapped and sold to the Caid to join his harem, the four must act quickly to escape before almost certain death-or worse. Although aided by a beautiful assassin and a small but clever band of resistance fighters, their lives depend on their own teamwork, inventiveness, and courage.This fast-paced historical adventure, set in 1912, transports you from Tangier's corrupt slave markets to the wild frontier of the Moroccan desert, to the heart of ancient China, and the pirate-infested seas of the Mediterranean. The first book in the Red Hand Adventures series, Rebels of the Kasbah is an exhilarating tale of adventure, daring, danger and friendship.

Editorial Reviews

'O'Neill has an eye for detail, atmosphere, and action... this is a rousingperiod piece that ends on a cliffhanger. -Publishers Weekly"Debut author O'Neill incorporates a great deal of cultural and historical context in his story... and will make the readers feel as though they have traveled back in time and fallen into that world. An exciting, exotic tale... The cliffhanger ending all but demands that readers jump to the next installment of the series.' -Kirkus ReviewsSelected for the National Battle of the Books Contest.'When I sat down to begin reading Rebels of the Kasbah, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough until I reached the last page and said - NOOOOO, I need to know what happens next! -Dr. Jean Lowery, CEO Battle of the Books'I read the first couple of pages to one of my 5th grade classes in our library, and from that moment kids were hooked on the book. I couldn't and still can't keep it on the shelf. I have one girl who has read the book 5 times,that I know of. Therefore I went to one of the 5th grade teachers and told him he needed to check this book out.He liked it so much that he made it his read aloud. The kids just can't wait until I get the second book in, andI have had to reserve it for a 5th grade teacher already.' -Stefani O'Connor, Elementary Librarian Eagle Point, OR'It reminds one of the classics like Treasure Island, Oliver Twist, and Aladdin while written in a language suitable for young readers of today. It tells an incredibly good story, highlighting young people with morals, values and ethics, who while they struggle with obstacles in their path to freedom, do so with loyalty, strength of character and by working together toward a common goal. Yup its one of those books that you hope your son or daughter would read and find heroes among its pages... and who couldn't use a well written hero or two? -Ibereadin (a leading middle reader blog)'Whether intended for a YA or adult audience, this is a book the entire family can enjoy reading... The book reads like a Boy's Own adventure and is filled with action involving bandits, pirates and rebels, reminding the reader of such grand entertainments as Rudyard Kipling's Kim, Michael Chabon's Gentlemen of the Road and John Milius' The Wind and the Lion... Four Stars.' -Kenneth Salikof for IndieReader "
