Really lovely story, set in a beautiful world. So well written that you can really see the imagery depicted.

Absolutely fantastic. Great narrator. I started reading this book because I kept getting ads on Facebook for this comic app called webtoons. Read the comics up to a certain episode then it wouldn’t let me read anymore. I found out it was an actual book so I got this audiobook and man I was not disappointed. I love the back and forth POVs that’s happening throughout the story. I like hearing each characters thoughts on the situation especially that scene with Shazi and Halid in the garden then you get to hear Tariq’s POV. The plot is kind of predictable but it’s a cute story. I like how the characters develop and it makes you want to root for them. Didn’t want it to end. On to book 2 and the short stories!
