Recai Osman: Muslim, philosopher, billionaire and Superhero?

Controversial and daring, Shadow on the Wall details the transformation of Recai Osman from complicated man to Superhero. Forced to witness the cruelty of the Morality Police in his home city of Elih, Turkey, Recai is called upon by the power of the desert to be the vehicle of change. Does he have the strength to answer Allah's call or will his dark past and self doubt stand in his way?

Pulling on his faith in Allah, the friendship of a Jewish father-figure and a deeply held belief that his people deserve better, Recai Osman must become The SandStorm.
In the tradition of books by Margaret Atwood and Salman Rushdie, Shadow on the Wall tackles issues of religion, gender, corruption and the basic human condition. Beautiful and challenging, this is not a book to miss.

My Thoughts:

Wow! This book was deep and truly amazing! I have wanted to read something really good like this one that would shine a positive light on Islam and religion. And though this book was really horrible in many ways it did show what Islam can really be and what Judaism can really be.... Friendly! Against each other and within it self.  Faith should be something peaceful and beautiful and it is in this book BUT it also show what happens when religion is used to gain power! Power to rule and abuse the people within the city! Power and religion does not go very well together and this is a great example of that!

I loved this book! It was so amazing and deep and beautiful and ugly and horrible all at the same time if that is possible! Recai is such a strong character and he has been through so much in his young life, but he rises from the ashes and became stronger by the hardships! He is the perfect superhero! Humble and strong with a strong faith even if he might not always realize that! I loved this one and could not put this book down even if I really wanted to cray more than I wanted to smile, this book is a real page turner and this book will be with me for some time! I can´t wait for the next one in this amazing series!!!!!

Pavarti K Tyler´s Bio.

Pavarti K Tyler is an artist, wife, mother and number cruncher. She graduated Smith College in 1999 with a degree in Theatre. After graduation, she moved to New York, where she worked as a Dramaturge, Assistant Director and Production Manager on productions both on and off Broadway.

Later, Pavarti went to work in the finance industry as a freelance accountant for several international law firms.

Throughout history, literature and the art of story-telling have influenced politics, religion and culture. The power of the epic tale is universal.

The power of the written word is undeniable and Pavarti is honored to be part of the next wave of literary revolution.
