You can find my full review of this book on my blog at

I’m the kind of reader who rushes through books to find out what is going to happen next, hurtling towards the next chapter and ultimately the end. However, this was a book that needed to be read slowly and savored. I ended up reading and having to take frequent breaks so that I didn’t read too quickly. Why? Because it was just written so beautifully. The writing was gorgeous, and the story was the kind that needed to be enjoyed rather than rushed.

I loved the Arabian-inspired world building. In a genre that is oversaturated with European inspired worlds, it was refreshing to step into a world full of sand and minarets, Arabic words, bright colors and exotic spices.

My plans to read slowly and savor every chapter, every page, every word, all went out the window close to the end. The action picks up and I couldn’t put the book down. I couldn’t wait to find out what happens next and there was no shortage of plot twists that I never saw coming. It was so exciting to read this book and completely lose myself in this story.

I can't wait to read the sequel.
