Awesome Early Review for “The Heart of Aleppo”

Hello friends!

The early reviews for my upcoming novel, The Heart of Aleppo: A Story of the Syrian Civil War, are starting to come in. So far, they have been extremely positive. One of my personal favorites is from the Grassroots Writer’s Guild Blog. Here’s an excerpt from the review:


The Heart of Aleppo is a courageous and versatile account of young Zaid, who discovers the “heart” of his home city even as it is destroyed. His life moves from some semblance of normality living over his rug merchant father’s shop to learning how to survive with Fatima and her brother Salman as adults die around them. Zaid comes to question every notion or tradition which structured his life before chaos. Prefabricated ideas of who and what represent safety fall away as government soldiers and rebels fire through civilians to dominate each other. There is no safety.

Ammar Habib is a prolific young American author who manages to make a 7,000-year-old city under onslaught come to life. Readers will feel they are running in the rubble and understand what it must mean when there is no way to stay out of a fight—not when it has engulfed an entire country.

You can read more reviews HERE or check out the novel, which is available for Pre-Order, HERE. Thank you for your continued support! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Your friend,

Ammar Habib
