Oh my goddess, Kamram is a masterpiece. He’s absolutely head over heels for Alizeh.
“You have consumed my thoughts since the moment I met you…I feel now, in your presence, entirely strange. I think I might fetch you the moon if only to spare your tears again.”
This woven Kingdom is a perfect blend of Persian mythology, fantasy and forbidden romance.
The story follows Alizeh, a servant girl who is actually the long-lost heir to an ancient Jinn kingdom. Forced to hide in plain sight, Alizeh is seen by all as a disposable servant, but little do they know of her true identity and the power she holds. She might have a meek exterior, but she had no problem kicking butt when necessary. Meanwhile, the crown prince, Kamran, is aware of prophecies that foretell the death of his king, but he can’t seem to take his eyes off a servant girl with the strange eyes. Even though falling love with her could easily destroy his world.
The plot is well-crafted, but I had to brush up on some of my high-levelvel thinking skills to get through some of the dialogue. I’m pretty sure I missed half the jokes. I will say the forbidden romance between Alizeh and Kamran kept me engaged and salivating for another touch-starved moment.
