Synopsis: In this re-imagining of The Arabian Nights, Shahrzad plans to avenge the death of her dearest friend by volunteering to marry the murderous boy-king of Khorasan, but discovers not all is as it seems within the palace.
I really enjoyed this story it is well written and the world is mesmerizing. I feel as though you get to know the main characters and a few minor pretty well. Shahrzad is a smart, strong character that has a quick temper and a silver tongue. She uses her storytelling skills to stay alive the first night, but than must rely on her wit to stay alive while she tries to find the best way to kill the boy-king. It is part of a saga, so I am not sure how many books are going to come. I am almost done with the second book and still loving the story.
