This Woven Kingdom
To all the world, Alizeh is a disposable servant, not the long-lost heir to an ancient Jinn kingdom forced to hide in plain sight.
The crown prince, Kamran, has heard the prophecies foretelling the death of his king. But he could never have imagined that the servant girl with the strange eyes, the girl he can’t put out of his mind, would one day soon uproot his kingdom—and the world.
Perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo, Tomi Adeyemi, and Sabaa Tahir, this is the explosive first book in a new fantasy trilogy from the New York Times bestselling and National Book Award-nominated author Tahereh Mafi.
What Left Me Wanting More: I wanted more of the backstory between the Jinn and Clay. Clay is the humans in this story, and Jinn is those with unique abilities, and though a sort of peace reigns between Clay and the Jinn, they are the lowest of the lower class. Their power is also bound unless in war or defense of a Clay. I felt so much for the Jinn in this story, as they are considered lesser than the clay but more powerful. The Prince is quite a unique character, and you can tell he wants so much to change the way his future kingdom is and fears for the loss of his grandfather if the predictions for the future come to pass.
The Final Verdict: This story does not hold back in the levels of emotions it draws from the readers as we are emersed in the story. The twists and turns kept me reading tell I got to the cliffhanger. Yes, they're one of those, so much so that I kept trying to flip the pages in my kindle, but there were no more pages. It is a delight to read and does not disappoint in the least.
