    1. I read Jewel of Medina a couple of years ago and just recently decided to purchase this book. Honestly, I expected this book to be horrible. I was right. Jones intends to honor the memory of Aisha, Ali, and the others presented in this book. However, it doesn't workout. Aisha comes off as a b****y girl at some points. Even worse, she portrays Ali as some guy eager for money and power. This man, in reality, did not care for such trivial things. It was painful to see him portrayed in the likeness [...]

    2. This book was pretty awful! WASP lady writes historical fiction about Islam after Muhammad's death. Badly written, and every character was an unlikable idiot. I think I spent a good half of the book rolling my eyes.

    3. Picking up where her first book, The Jewel of Medina, left off, Sherry Jones invites us back into the life of A'isha bint Abi Bakar, the prophet Muhammad's favorite wife and child bride. Following Muhammad's death from the Medina fever, his followers are left bereft. When A'isha's father Abu Bakar steps into the role of Khalifa (spiritual leader of the Muslims), things are far from peaceful because various factions are not satisfied with this solution. Unhappiness and rumors rage throughout the [...]

    4. First of all I must thank Sherry Jones for introducing me to A'isha. What a remarkable woman!After finishing "The jewel of Medina" I've made a quick search on the web about her and found out many of the events on the first book actually happened, even those which didn't occur at exactly at the age the author portrays in the book (A'isha's age of course). That made me love the book even more. this is what reading should do to you, open your horizons and make you wish to know more on the subject.T [...]

    5. There is a lot to like about this book: it's pretty historically informed for a work of fiction, it includes a great deal of interesting details about both important and subsidiary characters and places, and the author struggles valiantly to present opposing viewpoints and perspectives fairly, going to great lengths to portray the inner workings of two life-long enemies and early proponents of Islam - A'isha and Ali - in a humane and comprehensible light. No mean feat, and the effort is not in v [...]

    6. This is not my typical Historical Fiction novel that I would have picked up while wandering a bookstore. Therefore I'm glad this book was given to me to read. The story was narrated by A'isha and Ali, switching perspectives each chapter. It followed the reign of the first four "Rightly Guided" caliphs. The characters were in depth and it was interesting to see them change and adapt as events occurred throughout the book. The beginning caught my attention right away but around the middle of the b [...]

    7. A'isha bint Abi Bakr was the most-favored wife of Muhammad--the founder of Islam. The author has woven a story of a girl who is betrothed and married at a very young age to an older man. We see the girl struggling to find her place among the other (older) wives while battling pangs of jealousy with the marriage of each new wife. Marriages were done for political reasons--to increase a family's status and wealth--not just to provide children. Polygamy was accepted and promoted. Women were denied [...]

    8. This is more than a follow-up to her (unfairly) controversial first book, The Jewel of Medina, even though it begins where that one ended. It is told both from the perspective of A'isha and Ali during the reign of the first four "Righly Guided" caliphs.The characters are deeply drawn, and their motives are three dimensional, as well. The historical story of the beginning of Islam and its schism is not well known in the West, and this book is an excellent, detail filled, imagining of the times.It [...]

    9. I just finished the Sword of Medina - it was compelling, entertaining and a fun way to increase my knowledge of Islam. The fast paced presentation of Aisha and Ali`s personalities and intentions gave me an intimate insight into two of history's most influential people. The Sword of Medina is well written and intelligent, combining playfulness with painful human decisions. I identified with Aisha and Ali's struggles to assume both competing and complementary positions of power amid the intrigue o [...]

    10. It hurts, it really does, to give this book a 2 star rating, especially because I loved its predecessor " The Jewel of Medina" so much. But A'isha becomes extremely unlikeable after the Prophet's death to the very point that I wanted to hurl the book at the wall. Sometimes a sequel shouldn't happen.

    11. Considering the position of women in many of today's Muslim nations, it's difficult to imagine A'isha, the young woman and widow of the prophet, having so much influence and such a strong voice. However, the historical references are enlightening and the story held me.

    12. mnogo pitkije stivo. od Dragulja Medine, mozda zato sto sam usla u tematiku i upoznala likove, prica prati Ajsu kroz period vladavine cetiri halife

    13. Besides the truly ridiculous plot twist of romantic stirrings between Ali and Aisha, it was a tolerable read.
