This was a fantastic read, A book I would give this 6 stars to if I could
From beginning to end this book is an amazing page turner!! An Arabian nights inspiration comes a creative story set in a land ruled by a murderous boy-king where each dawn brings grief to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, takes a new bride each night only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. When Shahrzad’s dearest friend, Shiva falls victim to the Caliph, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride and is determined not only to stay alive, but vows to avenge her best friend death by plotting to kill the Caliph.
However, Shahzrad learns once volunteering herself to be the Caliph’s next wife that things may not always be what they seem. There is more to the tale than what she knows and it’s a strange turn of events when Shahrzad has lived past dawn and night after night she enchants the Caliph, Khalid with stories of the old. What happens next will blow your mind!!! Such an addictive read – very well written and nothing like I have read before – I cannot wait for the next book!!! 10/10!!!
