Excerpt:

"Yaqteenya: The Old World" as the 3rd book from Yatakhayaloon, where the author is exploring parts of both Islamic and world History in ways that would force you to re-think everything you thought was indisputable, regardless of what your background is, forcing you to imagine what the world could have looked like and how scientific development relates to both our history and ideology.

How would the world look like if major historical events in the Islamic world played out differently? How would technology develop?
#Yaqteenya is an alternate history novel that explores those questions from an Middle Eastern point of view, in a setting that is part SciFi and part fantasy.

Yaqteenya is facing its first civil war, To save it from it self, Al-Baz needs to break its #1 law and leave Yaqteenay to find answers about the truth that the rulers of the land.
