Publisher's Summary

A sumptuous and epically told love story inspired by A Thousand and One Nights.
Every dawn brings horror to a different family in a land ruled by a killer. Khalid, the 18-year-old caliph of Khorasan, takes a new bride each night only to have her executed at sunrise. So it is a suspicious surprise when 16-year-old Shahrzad volunteers to marry Khalid. But she does so with a clever plan to stay alive and exact revenge on the caliph for the murder of her best friend and countless other girls. Shazi's wit and will, indeed, get her through to the dawn that no others have seen, but with a catch...she's falling in love with the very boy who killed her dearest friend.
She discovers that the murderous boy-king is not all that he seems and neither are the deaths of so many girls. Shazi is determined to uncover the reason for the murders and to break the cycle once and for all.

Wait for the next book to be released

This book leaves the storyline hanging. I wish I had waited for the next book to be released before listening.

The story is interesting and original. I really enjoyed the characters and the authors style of writing. I hope to see more of this series on audible very soon.

Wonderful Story, Passable Narrator

I thoroughly enjoyed the story. It was well paced and wonderfully entertaining.
My one gripe was that the narrator wasn't as good as I hoped. Her reading was halting at times and every character was the same, I had a difficult time figuring out who was talking sometimes. I usually listen to everything on 1.5 because I'm impatient, but with this one, I think it needs to be listened to a little faster to keep it engaging.
