Synopsis: « Meet Maitha BinHumaid, a ten-year-old Emirati girl living in Deira, Dubai. Growing up, she was told that her mother died soon after her birth. After the death of her father, she finds a portal to Galagolia, a new world, and learns that she knew nothing about her life at all. Maitha soon inherits the throne to Galagolia, but can a ten years old really handle that responsibility? Can Maitha handle reuniting with the mother she's never met? Why was her mother held captive in Galagolia all this time? What about her estranged uncle, who supposedly died a long time ago?» ...Galagolia The Hidden Divination is a fantasy series written by @dubaiabulhoul when she was 13, and she's considered as the youngest emirate to publish a novel. And it was inspired from the Harry Potter series. I only read the prologue and it's quite interesting, I might review this when I'm done with it, let you know what I think. ...Have you read it yet, what you think? ..Have a nice Friday everybody 🙌🏻✨ ...#books#read#reading#galagoliathehiddendivination#galagolia#thehidden#divination#dubai#dubaiabulhoul#arabicnovels#GTHD#harrypotter
