Overview
Kidnapped on the streets of Tangier and sold into slavery, Tariq, Fez, and Aseem are fighting for their lives with the evil warlord, Caid Ali Tamzali, ruler of the Rif Mountains. Joined by British school girl Margaret Owen, also kidnapped and sold to the Caid to join his harem, the four must act quickly to escape before almost certain death--or worse. Although aided by a beautiful assassin and a small but clever band of resistance fighters, their lives depend on their own teamwork, inventiveness, and courage.

This fast-paced historical adventure, set in 1912, transports you from Tangier's corrupt slave markets to the wild frontier of the Moroccan desert, to the heart of ancient China, and the pirate-infested seas of the Mediterranean. The first book in the Red Hand Adventures series, Rebels of the Kasbah is an exhilarating tale of adventure, daring, danger and friendship.

Set in 1912 Morocco, this story, first in the Red Hand Adventures series, sees a group of children kidnapped, sold into slavery, and forced to fight for survival and freedom. Tariq, an orphan from Tangier; Aseem, sold by his father to settle a debt; and Fez, whose entire tribe was wiped out, are destined for life as camel jockeys, a career with a high mortality rate. An English girl named Margaret, separated from her family after a pirate attack, faces life in a harem. The four must find a way to escape the cruel Caid Ali Tamzali before it's too late. As their tales unfold, they intertwine with several other story threads, casting a glimpse of a much larger picture involving a growing rebellion against the vicious warlords of the region. O'Neill has an eye for detail, atmosphere, and action, but the frequent perspective shifts between the sprawling cast, and the numerous diversions to explain characters' back stories tend to dilute the impact. Nevertheless, this is a rousing period piece that ends on a cliffhanger (a sequel, Wrath of the Caid, is also available). Ages 12–up.
