“‘What are you doing to me, you plague of a girl?’ he whispered. ‘If I’m a plague, then you should keep your distance, unless you plan on being destroyed.’ The weapons still in her grasp, she shoved against his chest. ‘No.’ His hands dropped to her waist. ‘Destroy me.’”
Woo! Thank 👏🏼 you 👏🏼 Joee 👏🏼 for this recommendation!! It was SO good! I am OBSESSED this story! FYI it’s like “one more chapter whoops it’s 2:00 am” good! Khalid is the boy-king with legions of secrets behind walls of ice and stone. What are his secrets? Every dawn brings horror to a family in his kingdom…He is killing his wives. Why? Why is Khalid, the king, killing his brides? 🧐 So it’s a suspicious surprise when sixteen-year-old Shahrzad (Shazi) volunteers (I volunteer as tribute) to be his wife. Homegirl has a plan: stay alive and obtain revenge for her best friend and countless other girls murdered by the king. BUT wait.. is she falling in love with Khalid? I am! 😬😳 And what a fitting punishment for a monster like Khalid to actually fall in love with his wife. His soul’s equal. His joonam. His everything. Shazi is determine your uncover Khalid’s secrets, the reasons for the murders, and break the vicious cycle of murdered brides. SUCH an entertaining story! HOOKED! I know I’m going to have a book hang over! And can we talk about Khalid’s letter to Shazi 😭 tears! 🥺 I love you, a thousand times over. Ps. Did I mention Aladdin vibes! 🎶 “Over, sideways and under on a magic carpet ride.” 🎶 P.p.s. Have the sequel ready! The Rose & The Dagger and be prepared to be resuscitated.
