My Rating: 4.4/ 5
Plot Summary: Khalid, the 18-year-old Caliph of the Khorasan, is a monster. Each day he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her neck the next morning. When Shahrzad’s best friend becomes his another victim, Shahrzad decides to stop this terror once and for all. She makes a plan and volunteers to be his new bride. Surprisingly she gets through the first dawn, by telling fairy-tales to the king. Soon she starts to get to know the king better and it turns out that behind the monster everybody sees is hidden a young man with a kind heart and a tormented secret. Shahrzad finds herself falling in love with Khalid. But can their love survive the world of secrets?
My opinion: This book is wonderful; it brings you the eastern atmosphere and makes you turn the pages non-stop as every chapter has a plot twist; you think you know the next move, but everything is not like it seems, this book will keep you excited till the very end and even then. Furthermore, I greatly enjoyed Shahrzad’s sarcasm & the writing style! Wish I had the second book!
