About this title

Synopsis:

In Pre-Islamic Arabia, newborn female babies are buried alive in the desert, a custom practiced to avoid a possible future shame on the men in their families. Amir Shams stumbles upon an infant being pulled from the sand by a mysterious man and woman. Suspicious, Shams follows them and in a twist of events, finds himself the adoptive father of six girls. One is the abandoned daughter of the King of Arbad and a palace slave girl. This is the story of King Basheer and his love for his lost daughter, Kismet. The story begins with the violent raid of a small tribe by the monstrous Elkot raiders, leaving only one young girl, Absa, in its wake, mute from the tragedies she has witnessed. While walking through the desert Absa is rescued and taken in by Prince Shams and his wife Maya. Consequently, the couple begins to rescue baby girls from death, including Kismet, the daughter of King Basheer of Arbad, who lost his child to a palace scandal involving his beloved slave Jasmin. In the hands of Prince Shams and Maya, the girls grow up into strong empowered women who seize their destiny through skill and commitment. As they mature, they excel in combat and don beards as a disguise when ridding the desert of vicious gangs in their military force of over 400 warriors. Kasem (i.e. Kismet disguised during battle as the leader of the female army) isn't recognized when she and the girls go up against some city dwellers and the tribe of Beni Zedan. Kismet finds that the Chief of Beni Zedan is none other than her uncle who attempted the life of her half-brother, Amir Badr, the son of King Basheer, in order to avenge the death of both her and her mother, Jasmin. Follow the pages of Kismet In The Sand and discover the tragic love of King Basheer and his lost daughter, Kismet, and to journey with girls of Shams as they fight for their future, uncovering their identity in a tale of love, loss and destiny.
