Very good. Modern writing with old Arab fairy tale style. The descriptions are excellent and the story interesting. I was honestly taken in by the way it was written never actually saying he was singularly employed by the Sultan and that home was the human city.

I'm lucky enough to get to read this author's work on a regular basis, and the descriptions are always PHENOMENAL. Whether it's something beautiful, like long camel eyelashes highlighted by a campfire, or something grotesque, like bloodstained arrowhead teeth, the author always finds a way to make the description unique and memorable. The setting of this story is also different from other fantasy tales I've read, making it stand out from the pack, and as EddieSullivan pointed out, the references to the main character's employer and his desire to return home take on a whole new (and wonderful!) meaning once you've completed the story. I would love to see more of this character and his world. This could easily be the opening chapter of a longer work.
