Looking for Advanced Reviewers for Novel about Syrian Civil War

Hello friends!

I hope you are doing well! As most of you likely already know, I have a novel releasing on July 27th titled The Heart of Aleppo: A Story of the Syrian Civil War. I’ve been sending out electronic Advanced Review Copies for the past few weeks, and I am still actively looking for a few more advanced reviewers to send the book to. If you would be interested in reading and leaving an honest review of this novel, please feel free to contact me at: ahabibwr@yahoo.com.

As the title suggests, this novel is set during 2012’s devastating Battle of Aleppo, one of the most violent battles of the war. Although the protagonist in this book is fictional, the timeline of events and things that he experiences are all factual. The novel is not politically motivated; instead, it focuses on humanizing this war and its victims, and it’s main theme is about how humanity’s spirit burns brightest during our darkest hours.

Here’s the book’s premise:

After standing for over 7,000 years, Aleppo’s ruin came overnight. Separated from his family during the night the rebels attacked the city, thirteen-year-old Zaid Kadir is lost in the middle of a war zone. Alongside his friends, he is forced to survive the dangers of a civil war he does not even fully understand. Zaid witnesses the destruction of the brutal Syrian Civil War as it grows more deadly by the day and rips his city apart. However, as he braves this destruction, as he desperately tries to survive this catastrophe, he discovers something. Zaid realizes that it is in the darkest hours when humanity’s spirit of hope burns brightest. 
If you’d like, you can read the reviews already posted on Goodreads.
If you’d be interested in reviewing the book, I’d be more than happy to send you an electronic ARC in the form of a EPUB, MOBI, or PDF file (I can’t offer a printed ARC just yet since it isn’t yet published)! There’s no time frame for a review, just whenever you have the time. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you! 🙂
