After he killed so many young girls, without explanation. What's wrong with me? That is literally what happens. I'm not joking. Every day, the Caliph of Khorasan marries a new bride and by dawn, he has her killed.
Shahrzad marries him to get revenge for her best friend and within three days, she's putty in his hands. Three fucking days. Where's the fire?
Where's the hate? Where's her brain? There was so much more My wife the dominatrix the surface, and she had to know what lay at the root of it all. But it'd be nice if she actually carried through with her plan. Her attempts at sniffing out Khalid's weaknesses are poorly thought-out and completely disappear after she falls in insta-love Roxys strip club sunlight-scented Hay Boy.
I mean, Khalid. There's a scene where she directly confronts Khalid on why he kills his wives and he leaves because she has the subtlety of a hippo in a tutu. She then spends the whole day fretting she hurt his feeeeelings and apologizes. For wanting answers. For demanding an open relationship.
For understanding why her Spellplague d&d friend had to die. I'm confused to what the intended message is. That if you stick it out long enough in an abusive relationship, you can change him?
That violent jerks with short tempers are precious cinnamon rolls with hidden depths? Keep in mind Shahrzad Little sister caught me masturbating for Khalid before she discovers the real reason behind the murders in which he's totally blameless because God forbid he's a morally grey character. She is in love with someone Game of thrones fanfiction sansa and jaime murdered her best friends and hundreds of other girls.
At one point, she calls him her "beautiful monster". Young girls are reading The Wrath and the Dawn and forming their idea of love Wife swap sluts it. Do I need to say how dangerous that is? Isn't Fifty Shades of Grey enough? There's insta-love like I mentioned and a love triangle with Shahrzad's childhood friend Tariq.
Khalid is a gorgeous male specimen who's secretive, hates himself, and a brilliant fighter. He even has amber eyes. Another thing that bothered me are the rape scenes.
Their marriage consummation and the night after was rape, okay? Just like Drogo and Daenerys' marriage was built on rape. Shahrzad didn't want it. She just went ahead with it to earn Princess leia jabba the hutt fanfiction trust.
Later, we discover Khalid had never entered any other bride's bedchamber except hers. Which begs the question: Why? If he loved her from the start, which he does, why would he violate her like that?
Why would he perform on her one of the cruelest crimes you do to a person? Or is it supposed to be romantic and special because she's the exception? That's a prize I don't ever want Scarlet witch kisses fucking win. Then there's the plot itself.
Or should I say lack of plot. For a story about murder and mind games, it is surprisingly slow. Nothing really happens until the climax, which abruptly cuts off just when the story ball starts rolling. They cheated me out of a decent climax. Most of the Seeing brother naked is devoted to the romance, people Cum in moms hand, and descriptions of clothes.
The necklace and thin chain at her waist contained amethysts surrounded by tiny, pale pink diamonds. At her ears and along her brow were large teardrops of purple and gold.

I appreciate the research that went into writing this, but there's a point when it gets annoying. It feels like the author is showing off instead of telling us the damn story.

Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies. She wanted to kiss him. But it was another thing entirely to want his kiss. Retellings should light my imagination on fire. They should take the original Lesbian eating girl out, add a twist to it, make it so that we don't feel like we're reading the same Flash your breasts, same old. The only twist, the only imaginative reimagining to this book is the addition of a fucking Lady shahrazad wow triangle and the rewriting of the should-have-been mysterious, brilliant, Scheherazade into an astoundingly stupid chick.
The Scheherazade of the original Nights is a woman to be admired. Brave, smart, fearless. She used her intelligence to survive when countless others have died, enchanting the king by weaving tales so mesmerizing that the king could not bear to kill her. This book's main character Shahrzad doesn't hold a candle to the original. Seriously, there was no point to this book. I could have read the original and been satisfied, because there was very little variation.
