I found a lot of the secondary characters very interesting, but sadly they were a little one-dimensional and largely neglected. Also there wasn't much character development so much as development of romance. I really enjoyed the chemistry between the main characters, but I really would have liked to have seen some character development.
While the exchanges between female characters were refreshing, I think a lot of the conversation between Shazi and Khalid was passive-aggressive, and that's something that generally irks me.
Giving this 4 stars based on the writing, the world and magic (although I'd like to have seen more of it), the characters to an extent, and the fact that it held my attention enough for me to have finished it in a day. I will definitely be picking up the next book once it's out.
With regard to this particular hardcover edition, the sides of the paper have an uneven kind of torn appearance. This is called Deckled Edges, and are a deliberate design reminiscent of what was found in the book trade in the 19th century. In no way does it take away from the content of the book.
(THESE REVIEWS ARE MY POINT OF VIEWS, AND YOUR OPINIONS MIGHT BE VARYING FROM MINE)
Shahrzad and Khalid of Khorosan made for an intriguing pair. Strong willed, Sassy and capable of speaking her mind Shahrzad. Volunteering to marry a rumored tyrant when she is most likely going to die the next dawn. Willing to sacrifice herself in order to kill the man responsible for the death of her best friend Shiva. She is a force to be held and knows just what buttons to push. An all round bad-ass and kick-ass heroine to behold.
Khalid, the tall, dark and mysterious ruler of Khorosan. Imperfect and marred with a tragic past. Eighteen years old and being burdened with a mysterious affliction hasn't done anything to alleviate the tortured soul he is. Death of so many wives without reason has not done anything to raise him in the eyes of his people either. He often appears stone cold and calculating but Shahrzad seems to strike a chord.
She sees something no one ever cared to see. She may have agreed to marry him to eventually exact revenge for her best friend but instead of a monster she sees a tortured soul looking for belonging and love, someone who interests in listening to stories. She sees a man chaffing under the guilt of the murders of his previous wives. Somehow their developing love melts Khalid's cold heart into beating anew. Somehow he finds the yin to his yang. A burgeoning love, fiercest of the fierce. Searing romance, emotions raging high .... and you (reader) find yourself swept in their overtures of love.... My favorite pair .......
Ahdieh paints a convincing and vibrant world with her words. The narrative is spot on and Khorosan is beautifully realized. The words easy to understand and lyrical to be experienced. There is also a glossary at the end to reference the meaning of the Arabic words used. And all the food Shahrzad and Khalid consume and the mouth watering descriptions the author provided had me constantly hungry wherever i came across them.
I'm forgetting someone aren't I? Yes! .... Tariq .... I remember him .... He just annoyed me to no ends and whenever his chapters came around I was always impatient for them to be over. Otherwise I just absolutely loved and adored every bit of this re-telling of 1001 Nights. Of course magic is touched upon but not overtly depended on as the human emotions play a bigger part in this rendition. Utter perfection ..... Eagerly anticipating The Rose and the Dagger now.
