The Naiyro and the Beckoning Eroded Stone by Nada Almarri is a mythological/fantasy tale with the length of a novella. The story is and extremely fascinating and great read. The author introduces us to an original piece of mythology at the beginning of the story and it gradually develops to a modern tale. To me the best thing of any work of fiction is the world-building. The writer really showcases her creativity here. The book also features several illustrations that are well-drawn but leave enough room to the imagination.

Silic’s journey from this is one we can all relate to (don’t want to spoil anything). The pacing may feel a bit rushed but it’s important to remember that all mythological tales have a very “redacted” feel. Definitely a must buy.

Purchase The Naiyro on Amazon
